Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between spotlight bars and track lighting?

Spotlight bars are a lighting fixture that consists of a straight or curved bar with multiple adjustable spotlights attached. They typically hold between 1-4 spotlights, which are individually adjustable to direct light in a preferred direction.

This style of lighting is a good choice for task lighting or for highlighting specific areas of a room or objects. They are commonly used within the home in spaces such as above breakfast bars or for kitchen ceiling lighting. Spotlight bars are versatile and can be installed on the ceiling or the wall depending on the kind of functionality needed.

Tilly’s Lights stocks an extensive range of spotlight bars varying in styles between Modern and Vintage or Industrial. Colours range between black spotlights which provide an instant wow factor, to white and chrome which can add a contemporary flair to a space

Track Lighting consists of a track mounted on to the ceiling or wall, with adjustable light fixtures that can be moved along the track. This style of lighting provides more flexibility than the spotlight bar as it allows for positioning of the lights and direction of the light beams as desired.

Track lighting is often used for accent lighting or general lighting in various residential and commercial settings. Common uses for this style of lighting are in galleries, kitchens, living rooms and offices.

Track lighting systems come in different lengths and styles, offering a range of design options to suit various aesthetics. Tilly’s Lights offers single circuit tracks in 1m tracks, 2m tracks and 3m tracks in the Ailia range. While tracks come as single circuit, straight length tracks, Track Lighting Accessories are available that allow for more customisation of the lighting setup. The Ailia L Joiner for example allows connection of two lengths of track to create an L or corner configuration.

What are spotlight bars used for?

  • Accent Lighting: Spotlight bars are often used to accentuate specific elements or areas in a room. They can be used to highlight artwork, architectural details, decorative objects, or focal points such as a fireplace or a display shelf.
  • Task Lighting: Spotlight bars an effective task lighting solution. They can be positioned above a kitchen countertop, desk, or workbench to provide focused illumination for activities that require precise visibility, such as cooking, reading, or crafting.
  • Retail and Commercial Lighting: Spotlight bars are frequently utilised in retail stores, galleries, and exhibition spaces to draw attention to products or exhibits. They help create a visually appealing and engaging environment while directing the viewer's focus to specific items.

  • Ambient Lighting: Combined with other lighting fixtures, spotlight bars can be used to provide general or ambient lighting. Spotlights can be angled towards the ceiling or walls which bounces light off the surfaces and create a diffused glow that helps to evenly illuminate a space. Spotlights can also come as dimmable, which provides better control room illumination.

What types of bulbs are commonly used for indoor spotlights?

Spotlights can be paired with various types of bulbs depending on specific requirements. For specific bulb requirements of each spotlight product, please refer to product descriptions or contact Tilly’s Lights for assistance.

When choosing bulbs for your light fixtures, it's important to consider a few key factors. First, ensure that the wattage of the bulb does not exceed the maximum wattage specified on the light fixture. This is crucial because using a bulb with a higher wattage can cause the fixture to overheat, posing a potential fire hazard. Additionally, make sure that the shape of the bulb is compatible with the light fixture.

The type of bulb you select will depend on your lighting needs and preferences. LED bulbs are highly recommended due to their energy efficiency and longer lifespan compared to traditional incandescent bulbs. They are a cost-effective option in the long run and provide ample brightness.

Consider the color temperature of the bulb as well, as it can greatly influence the ambiance of the room. Bulbs with lower color temperatures, around 2700K, emit a warm and cozy light, perfect for creating a relaxed atmosphere. On the other hand, bulbs with higher color temperatures, around 5000K, produce a cooler and brighter light, suitable for areas where task lighting is important.

What is the difference between halogen and LED bulbs?

There are a number of key differences between halogen and traditional bulbs compared to LED bulbs.

  • Technology: Halogen bulbs use a tungsten filament enclosed in a small glass envelope containing halogen gas. When the filament heats up, it emits light. LED bulbs, on the other hand, use a semiconductor diode that emits light when an electrical current passes through it.
  • Energy Efficiency: LED bulbs are significantly more energy-efficient than halogen bulbs. LED bulbs convert a higher percentage of electrical energy into light, while halogen bulbs generate a significant amount of heat, making them less efficient. LED bulbs therefore can save a substantial amount of energy and reduce electricity costs over time.
  • Lifespan: LED bulbs have a significantly longer lifespan compared to halogen bulbs. LED bulbs can last up to 25,000 hours or more, while halogen bulbs typically last around 2,000 to 5,000 hours. This means that LED bulbs require less frequent replacement, resulting in lower maintenance costs.
  • Heat Generation: Halogen bulbs emit a substantial amount of heat as a byproduct of their use. LED bulbs, in contrast, generate much less heat. This makes LED bulbs safer to handle and reduces the risk of fire hazards, especially when used in enclosed fixtures.
  • Lighting Options: LED bulbs offer a wide range of lighting options in terms of color temperature and dimming capabilities. They can produce warm or cool light and are available in various color options. Halogen bulbs typically emit a warm white light but have limited options for color temperature and customization.
  • Environmental Impact: LED bulbs are considered more environmentally friendly due to their energy efficiency and longer lifespan. They consume less energy, reducing carbon emissions. LED bulbs also do not contain hazardous materials like mercury, which can be found in some types of halogen bulbs.

Can indoor spotlights be dimmed?

Can spot lights be used for task lighting?

Task lighting refers to lighting fixtures that are designed to provide focused illumination which targets a specific area, with the intention to enhance visibility of the area or object. As the primary objective of task lighting is to provide bright, specific light in certain areas, this makes spotlights an ideal choice for task lighting.

Common examples of task lighting include kitchen under-cabinet lighting, desk lighting, lighting above work stations, dining area lighting and kitchen bench lighting.

Some of the advantages of using spotlights for task lighting include:

  • Precise Illumination: Spotlights provide concentrated and focused light, allowing for precise illumination of specific areas or objects. This targeted lighting ensures that the task area is well-lit, minimising shadows and providing optimal visibility for tasks that require attention to detail.
  • Adjustable and Directional: Spotlights are typically adjustable, allowing you to direct the light exactly where it's needed. This flexibility enables you to position the spotlight to illuminate a specific work surface, reading area, or any other task-related location. You can easily adjust the angle and direction of the spotlight to optimise the lighting for your specific task.
  • Bright Light: Spotlights can produce bright and intense light with the right bulb. This is beneficial for tasks that require focused concentration and precision.
  • Minimal Glare: Spotlights are designed to minimise glare, which can be particularly advantageous for tasks that involve working with reflective surfaces or screens.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: In addition to their functional benefits, spotlights can also contribute to the overall aesthetics of a space. With a wide range of styles and designs available from Tilly’s Lights, spotlights can complement the interior decor and add a visually appealing element to the task area.
