Things to consider when buying downlights in New Zealand

When buying downlights, there are several important factors to consider to ensure you choose the right ones for your needs. Here’s a comprehensive list of things to consider:

Light Output (Lumens):

  • Determine the amount of light (measured in lumens) emitted by the downlight. Choose a suitable light output based on the size and function of the room.

Color Temperature:

  • Consider the color temperature of the downlight, which affects the ambiance and mood of the space. Options typically range from warm white (2700K-3000K) to cool white (4000K-5000K) and daylight (5000K-6500K).


  • Decide if you want downlights that are dimmable. Dimmable downlights offer flexibility in adjusting light levels based on different activities or preferences.

Energy Efficiency:

  • Look for downlights with high energy efficiency ratings (like LED) to reduce electricity costs and environmental impact. Check for energy star ratings or equivalent certifications.

Beam Angle:

  • Consider the beam angle of the downlight, which determines how the light is dispersed. A wider beam angle is suitable for general illumination, while a narrower beam is ideal for accent lighting.

Installation Type:

  • Determine the installation type based on your ceiling structure. Options include recessed (for standard ceilings), surface-mounted (for concrete or solid ceilings), or adjustable gimbal (for directional lighting).

Size and Fit:

  • Ensure the downlight size fits the existing ceiling cut-out or consider retrofit options if you’re replacing old fixtures. Measure carefully to avoid compatibility issues.

Quality and Durability:

  • Choose downlights from reputable brands known for quality and durability. Check for warranty periods to ensure long-term reliability.

IP Rating (for wet areas):

  • If installing in bathrooms, kitchens, or outdoor areas, consider downlights with appropriate IP ratings (e.g., IP44 or higher) to protect against dust and water ingress.

Design and Style:

  • Select downlights that complement the interior design of your space. Choose from different finishes (e.g., white, chrome) and styles (e.g., round, square) to match your aesthetic preferences.


  • Set a budget based on the number of downlights needed and desired features. Consider long-term savings from energy-efficient options despite potentially higher upfront costs.

Compatibility with Dimmers and Smart Systems:

  • If integrating with existing dimming systems or smart home setups, ensure compatibility with the downlights you choose.

Reviews and Recommendations:

  • Research customer reviews and seek recommendations from professionals or trusted sources to make informed decisions about specific downlight models or brands.

By considering these factors, you can select downlights that not only provide effective illumination but also enhance the overall functionality and aesthetics of your living or working space.
