If you’re fond of the look of spotlights but don’t want endless wiring and holes in the ceiling, then track lighting just might be the perfect solution. Track lights are easy to install, often using the existing wiring from your old lights, and each of the heads attach to a central track which can be pointed and adjusted wherever you like. So if you have a favourite painting, collection of framed photos on the wall or a display cabinet you want to feature, you can use your track lighting to help them take centre stage. Use energy-saving LEDs with your track lighting, and you can rest assured that it will be years before you have to worry about changing a bulb. They will also use a tiny fraction of electricity that the equivalent halogen bulb would which will save you money on your energy bills. Opt for wire lighting, which is a slightly more delicate, refined type of track lighting for a stunning modern lighting display.
We’ve hand picked some of our favourite track lighting systems in terms of style, price and features to get you started. Many of them are available as kits that can be expanded at a later date, should you change your mind about how many lights you want in the room – it really is that easy.
