When choosing the right ceiling luminaire, you should first decide between choosing a ceiling luminaire with a standard socket or one with integrated, energy-saving LED light source. Here at LEDs.de we care about your choice and thus offer you a considerable number of LED ceiling lights with highly efficient LEDs as well as ceiling lamps with standard sockets, in all conceivable shapes and colours. In our huge ceiling light category you will find high-quality branded products, that are attractive in design and also offer good value for money. Clearly structured and equipped with useful filter functions, our category helps you to find your ideal ceiling lamp.
Versatile shapes and optics for individual lighting
Ceiling lights are available in an extremely wide variety of shapes and styles, ranging from the circular classic, rectangular modern or elongated tubular industrial luminaires to recessed LED ceiling spots, panels or multi-lamp surface ceiling spots. There seem to be no limits to the imagination in terms of design.
An important distinction should be made between recessed ceiling luminaire and surface-mounted ceiling luminaire. A recessed luminaire must be installed in a dropped (false) ceiling surface and has most of the body hidden from view. Thus the luminaire is mostly reduced to its functional purpose: to deliver light. As the name suggests, a surface-mounted luminaire is simply attached onto the wall and, in contrast to a recessed luminaire, has a much bigger visual impact as its hole body is visible. Surface luminares can have both decorative and functional purposes and here at LEDs.de you will surely find the one that matches your decor and lighting needs.
LED ceiling lights - new possibilities in terms of design and technology
With the widespread introduction of LEDs in the lighting sector and thus also in the lighting industry, numerous design possibilities arise, as the built-in LED light sources can be integrated into almost every luminaire body due to their extremely compact design. One such important possibility is to have very flat, slim or narrow designs inspired by geometric or natural shapes. And the fact that the light sources are permanently installed is hardly a cause for concern, as the service life of the LEDs is immensely long, up to 50,000 hours, so that you will enjoy your LED ceiling light for many years to come.
Advantages of LED ceiling lights with integrated LED lamps
LED panels, LED ceiling lights or LED ceiling spots - all have permanently installed, highly efficient LEDs. But why buy such a luminaire? Very simple. The light emitting diodes used by the luminaire manufacturers and the luminaire unit or housing are perfectly matched to each other and guarantee a correspondingly high and reliable light output. In addition, the longevity of LEDs already mentioned above makes replacement of the light source a rarity. Plus, the design does not need to accomodate the bulky body of a classic shaped lamp.
Ceiling lights with standard sockets allow high flexibility
If you want to have more freedom to design your lighting, our numerous ceiling lights with standard sockets are the best choice. Most popular standard sockets are E27, E14, GU10 and in our lamps online shop you will certainly find the right LED lamps with these and others. Choose from LED lamps in the classic incandescent style, reflector LED spots or LED downlights, in white or color light plus extra functions such as dimming or with smart control. The SLV Mix&Match Fenda is a perfect example of standard socket freedom.
What kind of light should the ceiling light emit?
Basically you have three possibilities to illuminate a room with a ceiling lamp.
- A ceiling lamp for diffuse, uniform light.
- Ceiling lights with indirect lighting.
- Ceiling spots for targeted lighting.
Ceiling lights for uniform lighting
These types of ceiling lights are usually fairly simple in design. The light source, integrated or not, is located directly on the ceiling of the room and is surrounded by a lampshade/lamp body, which provides light diffusion, depending on its material. Ceiling luminaires of this type produce somewhat bright and diffuse light, which ensures uniform illumination of a room. This makes diffuse ceiling luminaires perfect for rooms where direct uniform lighting is required, such as the living room, kitchen, corridor or staircase.
Ceiling lights for indirect lighting
If you want to provide more pleasant lighting in a room, ceiling luminaires with indirect lighting are a good alternative to diffuse ceiling lamps. This type of luminaire is installed a few centimetres below the ceiling and radiates its light upwards. The resulting indirect light is comparable to that of a pool of dim light and is particularly comfortable. In order to be able to illuminate a room very brightly with these luminaires, the light source used must be very powerful. In order to compensate for the bouncing that the light has to make from the ceiling to the room indirect ceiling luminaires often use very bright and, at the same time, energy-saving LEDs.
Ceiling spots for focused room lighting
LED spots with their focused light offer completely new possibilities for room lighting. The adjustable luminaire heads set the scene for specific objects or parts of the room to be lit, are perfect for targeted functional lighting and add more personality to the entire room.
Before buying the ceiling lamp of your choice, pay attention to the right colour temperature!
