Track lighting is a versatile lighting solution available in a range of finishes to suit your decor. Brass track lighting is an alternative to a simple black or white finish, and can suit a modern or traditional interior.
There are three ways to install linear brass track lighting and the best installation method depends on ceiling height and material, as well as the style of the room. Track can be surface mounted, recessed or suspended, with surface mounting offering the easiest option. Recessing the track into the ceiling is more complex and isn’t suitable for some ceiling materials such as concrete. Suspending track works well in spaces with high or vaulted ceilings, bringing the light down to the required height. Suspended track can also provide a decorative feature over a kitchen island or table.
Brass track lighting is available in a range of lengths. Track can be configured into a variety of shapes and sizes by using joiner accessories. Brass track lighting can be used in a wide variety of settings around the home, from a living area to an entryway.
The fixtures which mount to track are called track lighting heads. There is an extensive choice of brass track lighting heads to choose from, ranging from simple spotlights to vintage or designer styles. A brass finish can range from a sleek brushed or satin brass through to a brushed, or aged, antique effect.
Brass track lighting heads may use a halogen or LED globe. LEDs are recommended, for their energy efficiency, long lifespan and excellent quality of light. An LED globe in a warm white colour temperature (around 3000K) creates a warm and inviting ambience.
A high quality track lighting kit can offer an easy way to select brass track lighting, with all the components needed for a complete solution.
