Track LightingTrack lighting is a contemporary fixture perfect for just about any room in your home. Whether you want to illuminate the artwork on your living room wall or brighten up the kitchen, track lighting is available in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes. It is a great alternative to traditional lamps and recessed lighting and is cost-efficient, easy to install and can create the illusion of a larger space.

The Unlimited Possibilities of Track Lighting

A popular location for track lighting is the living room. It is a room used for a variety of activities, including studying and entertaining guests. Unlike a traditional floor or table lamp, track lighting can light up a much larger area, so you can sit or stand anywhere and not have to worry about where to find the best light. If your living room is the place where you watch TV, track lighting will illuminate the entire space without creating a cross-glare on the screen. Track lights can also be installed above fireplace mantels, wall art or anywhere else you want to draw attention.

Track lighting has also become a common alternative to island lighting in the kitchen. More and more time is being spent in the kitchen, whether it is preparing food, entertaining guests or reading a book, and track lighting produces a warm light that can be focused right where it is needed. One of the best features of track lighting is its versatility – light heads are easily added, replaced and moved. So you will always be able to adjust your track lighting sytem as your lighting needs change.

Common uses of track lighting:

  • Ambient/General Lighting: Install more than one set of track lights to illuminate a large room.
  • Accent Lighting and Wall Wash: Use track lighting to highlight artwork or a bookcase.
  • Task Lighting: Install track lights in areas where you perform certain activities, such as cooking or studying.
