Adding Some Spotlights to Your Home? Check Out Our Useful Guide to Get the Best Spotlights for Your Home!

When you buy new spotlights for your home, you will often find loads of information online that refers to lumens, colour warmth, and other things. If you are not that familiar with these terms, it can be a little more difficult to find the best spotlights for your home. Fortunately, you can count on our useful guide below to help you find the best spotlights!

What Are Lumens?

Lumens is a term used by lightbulb manufacturers to refer to the brightness of the light. The higher the lumens count on the product, the brighter the light will be.

Of course, aside from lumens, you must also consider the type of light you are buying. For example, if you choose LED, it will be less bright than a halogen bulb. However, LED bulbs tend to be much more environmentally-friendly.

What Is Colour Warmth?

Colour warmth is often confused with lumens, but these two terms are quite different from one another. Colour warmth refers to the overall ambience of a light - for example, it may release a warmer colour or a cooler colour. The colour warmth of your spotlights will have a score on the so-called Kelvin scale. The lower the number on the scale, the warmer the light will be. The higher the number on the Kelvin scale, the cooler the light released by the lightbulb.

Most manufacturers will recommend the use of warmer and cooler spotlights in specific rooms. Warmer lights are usually recommended for rooms where you want to create a comfortable ambience, such as the living room and the bedroom. Cooler spotlights are recommended for functional rooms where additional lighting is needed, more specifically the kitchen and the bathroom.

What Is the Beam Angle?

The beam angle is used to determine the concentration of light. A lightbulb with a narrow beam angle will provide more concentrated light, while a wider lightbulb provides less concentrated light. For most people, the beam angle of the spotlights matters little. However, this beam angle is more important than you might think. The concentration of light must be considered in relation to the height of your lightbulb since the spotlight must illuminate the area properly!

Consumers who need to cover a larger surface with light should consider a bulb with a beam angle of at least sixty degrees. However, if you only want to illuminate a small area, then a beam angle of thirty degrees may be more suitable for you.

What Is the LED Type?

Even though most people prefer LED lightbulbs nowadays, there are various subtypes of LED bulbs consumers should consider. The standard LED bulb contains several LED's of 1 watt - this could be 3 x 1 or 4 x 1. When you are searching for individual LED spotlights for your home, these are usually the bulbs you will be looking for.

Consumers can also obtain COB LED spotlights, which stands for chip on board. These types of LED bulbs are made with multiple LED chips, providing a wide-spread panel of light when they are turned on. There is also the surface mount device LED spotlight, which is attached to a circuit board. These types of bulbs usually provide a wide beam angle of light and do not contain leads or housing you normally get with LED spotlights.

In addition to these general types, there are many other subtypes of LED spotlights out there, including Gimbals. So, be sure to evaluate all types in more detail to determine which one will illuminate your home as required.
