What is surface-mounted lighting?

The type of lighting that is attached directly to the surface of ceilings or walls is known as surface-mounted lighting. This lighting remains visible, sitting externally on the chosen surface, unlike recessed lighting that is embedded into a surface. 

Surface-mounted lighting has a distinct style due to its prominent placement and the absence of recessed housing. Not only it is a breeze to install but it also brings a unique vibe to any room, whether you're going for a modern look or something a bit more classic. Both stylish and straightforward, surface-mounted fixtures are a game-changer for your interior's lighting design.


Why choose to mount a lighting fixtures directly on a surface

Surface-mounted lighting is a popular choice among interior architects for its practicality, because this often practical choice also offers a lot of versatility. Whether you're lighting a hallway, living room, or office, surface-mounted lighting provides a practical and stylish solution.

Driver included or excluded?

When it comes to surface-mounted lighting, it's important to note that fixtures can be either driver included or driver excluded. The driver is an electronic component that regulates the power to the LED light source. The decision to choose driver included or driver excluded fixtures will depend on the specific needs of the space.
