Track lighting is a versatile lighting solution available in a range of finishes to suit your decor. Bronze track lighting is a more decorative alternative to a simple black or white finish, and can suit modern or more rustic interiors.
Bronze track lighting can be surface mounted, recessed or suspended. The best installation method depends on the ceiling height and ceiling material, as well as the setting and preference. Linear track is available in a range of lengths, and by using joiners track can be configured into a variety of shapes and sizes. This makes it a flexible lighting system for use around the home. In a large living area, bronze track lighting can be used to zone the space into areas for relaxation, work or dining. Track lighting for kitchens is one of the most common domestic applications.
Surface mounting bronze track lighting offers the easiest installation. Recessing track, so it is flush with the ceiling surface, is more complex and isn’t suitable for all ceiling materials, such as concrete. Suspending track is ideal for spaces with high or vaulted ceilings, as it brings the light level down to the required height. It can also be used to provide a decorative feature over a kitchen island or table.
A light fixture which mounts to the track is called a track lighting head. There are many track heads in a bronze finish to choose from. Bronze fixtures may vary in colour, with slightly different finishes ranging from aged, antique, dark, brushed bronze or oil rubbed bronze. A benefit of track lighting is that the heads are not fixed in one position, the fixtures can be moved up and down the track if you update your decor.
If you are looking for a flexible bronze track lighting system, you might want to consider monorail track lighting. Monorail can be bent to provide curved or circular installations. Another advantage of monorail is that both pendants and track lighting heads can both be used on the same system.
Bronze track lighting heads may use halogen or LED bulbs. LEDs are recommended, for their energy efficiency, long lifespan and excellent quality of light. If you are unsure how to choose track lighting, you may want to consider a high quality kit which contains the components you will need for a complete solution.
