Top 5 Things To Consider When Getting LED Downlights For Your Kitchen

If you’re on the hunt for LED downlights in Sutherland Shire or Gymea for your kitchen, there’s a lot you need to consider for their installation. With the full range of options available on the market, you need to figure out what will work best for you before spending your hard-earned money. Luckily, we’re here to make the whole process easier for you.

Here are our top five deciding factors you need to consider.


In most homes, the kitchen ceiling is generally higher than the average ceiling height – this allows more air circulation. With that in mind, remember that you want as much light as possible in your kitchen. So, it would be best to opt for bright LED downlights to lighten up your cooking area. Additionally, remember that kitchens have more heat and moisture, so make sure that your downlights are ingress protected.


It’s also worth noting that when installing downlights, you’ll need to make holes or have electrical wiring arranged. You should hire a professional electrician with experience in LED downlight installations to help you. They’ll also have in-depth knowledge about the different downlights available and which will suit your needs.


The ultimate kitchen LED downlights are usually the fanciest, with a dose of the perfect mix of lighting and safety. Make sure you consider installing IP rated downlights, as they’re dust-tight and waterproof!


We all rave about how energy-efficient LED lighting is. But have you considered that kitchen lights are forever on, especially if you have an open-plan home? Speak to a professional about downlights that are more energy-efficient to save on bills.


Suitable LED downlights from a Sutherland Shire or Gymea manufacturer will require little to no maintenance (that’s how you know you got the best). However, with kitchen lights, it can get a bit tricky because the lights will always be exposed to heat, smoke and oil fumes. We recommend that you install LED downlights with an extended warranty, so you’re on the safe side.

It is vital to put your thoughts on paper before buying your LED downlights. That way, you’ll have a clearer idea of what you’re looking for for your kitchen and any other room in your home.

At Skyco Trades, we’re experts in LED downlights installations with a remarkable track record of delighted customers. Our installation services are seamless and aim to get the job right the right time, every time.
