Downlights and spotlights are indispensable things in the home, but many owners still can't understand their differences and use scenarios. Today, renis Xiaobian, an intelligent lighting company, will tell you about the installation position and irradiation angle of downlights and spotlights, hoping to bring you some help.


1. Difference between spotlight and downlight

Spotlight: it is a spotlight with strong three - dimensional sense. The facade light has obvious arc (that is, the hills we talked about) can generally be used for wall washing and painting, and the light source direction of some spotlights can be freely adjusted.

Downlight: it is a kind of floodlight lamp with a layer of acrylic mask on the surface. The wall light arc on the facade light is not obvious and the beam angle is short. It is generally used for basic lighting, and the light source of downlight is not adjustable.


2. Beam angle

Spotlight: the general beam angle is 15 degrees, 24 degrees and 38 degrees, which plays the role of key lighting and reflecting the level of light and shadow.

Downlight: generally, it has a large beam angle of more than 60 degrees. As the main lighting, the whole space will be illuminated.

Recommended application areas of spotlights with different beam angles:

(1) 15 degrees are used for the lighting of key objects, such as important ornaments or objects, to play a prominent role.

(2) 24 degrees is used for basic lighting, suitable for home space, generally used in living room, bedroom, study, etc.

(3) 38 degrees are used in areas with high lighting requirements such as aisles, kitchens and toilets.

3. Anti dazzle

Spotlight: generally, the shading angle of spotlight is more than 30 degrees, and most spotlights in the market suppress glare by hiding light sources, cellular nets and anti glare covers

Downlight: downlight with large beam angle not only has small shading angle and insufficient light source depth, but also has greatly weakened anti glare function. It is easy to shake eyes


4. Usage scenarios

Suggested areas for spotlights: wall washing, living room, bedroom, study, corridor and porch.

Suggested areas for downlights: corridor, kitchen, toilet, balcony. If downlights are used, the light will be more uniform, because the width of the corridor is not large. Generally, there will be light on the walls on both sides of the 1.2m corridor, which can also achieve a uniform wall cleaning atmosphere. It is recommended that the spacing of each lamp be between 70-90, so that the light is uniform.


5. Distance from the wall

20cm from the wall

(1) The light source of the downlight will diverge from the panel, the light source will be more scattered, but also more uniform, and the light will illuminate wider and wider.

(2) The spotlight has a beam angle structure. The light source will be relatively concentrated, and the light will be concentrated in one area to illuminate farther and brighter.


40cm from the wall

(1) The light of the downlight is evenly distributed, making the whole space bright and spacious through uniform lighting, which can replace the main light as an auxiliary light source.

(2) Under the contrast of the spotlight, the lighting effect of the space is bright and dark, and the sense of hierarchy is rich.
