How many downlights do you need per room?

Choosing how many downlights you need to create the effect you're looking for in any given room can be a challenging task!

Our guide breaks this down room by room to help you work out how many you'd need in your living room, kitchen or bathroom!

Creating the desired atmosphere for each room

Bedroom Lighting


LED downlights in bedrooms can be used to create varying effects and atmospheres in the same way they can in living rooms. Our chart for bedroom downlighting is based on creating a level of 150 lux at floor level that is designed to create a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere.

Bathroom Lighting


Bathroom lighting is required to be slightly more intense and brighter than would be required in a living room or bedroom. Lighting arrangements in bathrooms are required to be functional without being too strong and therefore our chart is designed to create a level of 200 lux at floor level.

Kitchen Lighting


When planning your kitchen lighting, it is important to ensure that you have sufficiently lit work spaces. A much larger number of LED downlights are often required to allow for task lighting at counter level. Our kitchen chart is based around creating a suitable task light level of 300 lux at a surface height of 0.75m.

Living Room Lighting


When it comes to lighting for a living space, it is important that you consider the arrangement of your room and anything that you might like to highlight. Our chart is based around creating a level of 150 lux at floor level to create a comfortably lit room.
