Most users don’t know which color temperature (warm white/neutral white / daylight white) would be fit for their rooms. The professional solution of TALOYA ceiling light resolves your problem. You could choose your favorite color by sliding the button on the product’s backside.

As the years go by, TALOYA LED ceiling light’s shell color will not be corrupted or decay by comparing with other metal product’s body which is oil brushed or powder-coated. 

Excellent performance of dustproof, easy to clean. Cleaning kitchen lamps is indeed a headache.

Under normal usage of 8 hours per day, lifespan could endure more than 3 years.  Not particularly good, but enough.

if you’re not particularly handy or haven’t changed a light before it is not difficult but with this product you WILL need a pair of wire strippers. The exposed wire as it comes is far too short, it will make the job much more frustrating and difficult.

Things we like

  • European made
  • 3 temperature color setting
  • Easy to install
  • Solid build

Things we don't like

  • This is not a dimmable light
  • The exposed portion of wiring on the fixture is VERY short

This LED fixture is what I was looking for to replace a four fixture LED track light in our kitchen. Installation was easy and my wife and I were pleased with the uniform light output. I like the fact that the lens is plastic because we had a glass fixture in the dining room at one time that shattered apparently because of the heat from the light bulb, no one was near it. The plastic lens won’t shatter if you drop it during installation and the appearance is good. However, if you just don’t like plastic then go to your local lighting gallery and pick out something else, for more $ of course. –William from Amazon

 

Add sleek modernity to your home with this dimmable flash mount LED ceiling light. An acrylic shade, framed in oil rubbed bronze finish steel, creates a sleek silhouette ideal for lower ceilings and even illumination. This stylish design comes with energy-efficient warm white LEDs, offering you a stunning look.

This light provides an awesome, warm light that isn’t overpowering like some LED’s. A lot of people will likely find it too bright, but I think you can hook up a dimmer switch that will tone it down a bit. Sometimes you don’t need to see everything so well!

Things we like

  • Great price
  • Dimmable
  • Easy to install
  • Modern looking

Things we don't like

  • The only cons to it were a lack of enclosed hardware.

I’ve purchased three of these lights for my current home, and three for our previous home. I absolutely love the farmhouse style and the blend of white and black. We use vintage bulbs in soft white and they provide ample light for the foyer. We also utilize one in a bedroom hallway. I like that there is no glass, which makes them easier to clean. – CalCal from Amazon

Create a cozy and comfortable home atmosphere with the farmhouse-inspired Briarwood Collection Whitewashed One-Light Rustic Flush Mount Ceiling Light ideal for any hallway, kitchen, sitting room, or foyer in coastal, craftsman, farmhouse, rustic, urban industrial, and vintage electric interiors.

But the design on this light is so flawed. You need locknuts to hold the mounting screws in place because they move all around when trying to put the light up. The instructions are a complete joke and don’t tell you what holes on the plate you need to use. Light itself is very cute but the design and instructions are unclear and flawed.

If you are confident in your DIY hands-on ability, then you can buy it and give it a try. Otherwise I would not recommend it.

VICNIE provides different lamp body colors, which can be perfectly integrated with your house style.

15W to replace 100W incandescent/fluorescent light, 1100lumens, 3000K warm white, uses at least 75% less energy than incandescent lighting. Dimmable 10%-100%, compatible with most standard dimmers.

By adopting the premium white acrylic lampshade and high-end LEDs, No dazzling, No Flickering will occur when using the LED flush mount ceiling light. No IR or UV radiation exit. That can help to protect the eyes from harsh and glaring lights.

I recommend this for use in smaller rooms. its design isnt conducive to projecting light to the sides and if mounted using a fast track system you can end up getting a dark rim around the room.

Things we like

  • Nice look
  • Very easy to install
  • Lightweight
  • Dimmable

Things we don't like

  • Smaller and dimmer than expected

I absolutely like the 2.4GHz wireless remote control. You don’t have to have a direct line of sight to control the lights. In other words, you don’t have to direct the remote control to the device for its work. I can operate the lamp from the living room without problems. Another nice perk is that I can program one remote control to control both fixtures, which is great. – Youssef Hassan from Amazon

 The LED light has 3 different light settings: warm, neutral and cool, and the brightness can be adjusted using the remote from dim to totally bright which is really nice. 

For the price, it’s a good lamp. The lamp is plastic and cheap but it looks good. The best and worst part is remote. The remote gives you all the options you would want but if you lose it you can’t control the light.

Installation was easy, and the unit was lightweight enough to install by yourself.

Things we like

  • Adjustments for brightness and warmth
  • Very easy to install
  • It remembers your preset even if you turn the wall switch off
  • Dimmable

Things we don't like

  • 2 AAA batteries (for remote) not included
  • The plastic body is very thin and brittle

If you’re looking for a nice polished, easy to install, hard-wired light then This is the one for you. With that said.. spend another 10 bucks and get a dimmer switch unless you like feeling like you’re in an operating room.

This is a really perfect replacement for a defective LED fixture in your kitchen.

The light is so bright and pure white. So, with a dimmer switch, you would find it’s more enjoyable. I like that we can each use our own level of brightness.

Things we like

  • Super bright
  • Very easy to install
  • 50,000 hours lifespan
  • UL and CUL certified

Things we don't like

  • The translucent cover is a bit loose
  • 4000K is not suitable for bedroom and living room

Light fixture is very bright for it’s compact size. Cute little frosted glass over the bulbs. Easy to install, shipped perfectly and arrived as expected.

Wish the “does not include bulbs” was something I had noticed in the ad (seller did list that in the text section) as I would have purchased them on Amazon and not had to pay the local hardware store price! The electrician had it up and said “where is the bulbs” so we had to scramble, but once those were in the fixture was great!

Would buy this again if we need an updated fixture in any other location. -Customer from Amazon

Update your home’s lighting with the 4-light fixed track light. A brushed nickel finish and curved design give this light fixture a sleek, modern look. Each track head is adjustable so you can direct light where you need it the most.

It’s CSA listed and damp-location rated for safe operation. Installation instructions are included in the box so you can mount this fixture with ease. The Sheridan track light uses four 50W GU10 halogen bulbs for long-lasting illumination.

Please note that you have to try to angle them to meet your needs. Just like mini spotlights so you’re not going to get a flood of even light through the room bear that in mind when you purchase this.

Things we like

  • The lights move in all directions
  • Good for small kitchen
  • Brigh enough

Things we don't like

  • . It is a bit difficult to change the bulbs
  • Adding a dimmer switch will be a good idea

How to choose the best kitchen lighting?

Choosing the best lighting for your kitchen requires careful attention to the function of the lamps.

WATT: Kitchen Kitchen lights should be bright because you are working with knives and other cooking materials. For dark kitchens and more opaque fixtures, try 80-100 watts. If you get a lot of natural light or for a samll kitchen, try using a slightly dimmer 30-50 watt bulb.

CCT: As for CCT, bright white/cool white (4100 Kelvin) is a good choice. Giving rooms a whiter, more energetic feel. You can also pick 3000k warm white, which will bring a warm feeling to the home. 6000k is not recommended.

MEASURING: Before choosing any type of light fixture, please thoroughly measure your kitchen to determine how large (or small) light fixtures the room can accommodate. Please remember important dimensions such as height, width, depth and weight.

Finally, try to choose the colors and finishes of the lamps to supplement the existing furniture and decorative pieces in the room to create a consistent and cohesive space.
