In fact, the use of track lights in Singapore can help you get a more uniform illumination throughout the hallway.
With proper application and positioning, track lights can add finesse to any home, be it old or new. In this article, we cover the different ways you can use track lights to accentuate your home interior!
7 ways to use track lights and make them look good
1. Using track lights as task lighting
Ideally, kitchens and study rooms should have bright lighting - so you'd want to direct your light to the space you're working at - be it the computer desk or kitchen counter.
For this purpose, track lights are a good option. With its flexibility, track lighting allows you to adjust the distance between individual bulbs along the track. But that's not all - the light can be pointed in a variety of directions, focusing on different areas that require greater brightness.
To light up multiple areas in a room, you typically need both a ceiling light and a standing lamp. But what if you don't want too many lighting fixtures or don't have the space for them? Using multiple light sources on a single track eliminates this problem, and you can get away with using just one light fixture instead.
2. Track lights to highlight aesthetic features
Highlighting feature walls, artwork, or photos is one of the most common applications of LED track lights in Singapore.
Ceiling-mounted or pendant light fixtures usually leave shadowed areas, leaving some items less visible than others. This is especially noticeable along corridor walls if there is no directional lighting.
If you want more uniform illumination of your displays, angle your track lights into corridor walls to create a more even light distribution.

3. Use track lights to frame an area
There are many ways to treat track lights. For example, you can set up the lights in a square pattern, placing a piece that you want to draw attention to in the centre. In this way, the lights serve as a frame instead of using wood panelling.
Moreover, you won't have to install any ceiling fixtures or create an area for recessed lights, especially if space is limited.

4. Great alternatives to pendant lights in Singapore
Most people would think of yellowish, mellow tones from pendant or ceiling lights for a warm, relaxing ambience in a bedroom.
However, track lights paired with dimmers can create that dreamy ambience in your bedroom. An ingenious way is to direct them towards display shelves or walls to reflect the light into the room.
Track lights allow you to control the amount of light you want in a room, so you don't have to worry about glare.
Pendant lights are a common fixture in many kitchens. While some may look nice, they tend to detract from the other features of the kitchen, such as the cabinets and countertops. On the other hand, track lights can enhance the appearance of your space without taking attention away from other points of interest.

5. Use track lights to accent your bathroom
Even though track lighting is typically mounted on the ceiling, it can also be mounted on the wall to brighten up spaces that require additional light.
Extra lighting is always welcome in the bathroom, especially in the vanity area. Installing track lights above your mirror not only offers a practical solution to your need for increased brightness it also adds elegance to your bathroom.
6. Use track lights to achieve that minimalist look
Adding track lighting to your home will give it an air of modern minimalism. A chandelier might appear bulky in comparison.
A single track of lights would brighten up a room if a few are pointed to the corners of the room and others targeted towards a focal point.
Space limitations should not disqualify track lighting. In fact, its sleek appearance makes any space look clean, uncluttered and more spacious than it actually is.
Here’s a table to sum off the advantages of using track lights:
Installation is less invasive and doesn’t require much renovation. Practical in both old and new homes.
Don’t require floor space, suitable for small spaces, unlike standing or table lamps.
Can be set for mood or task lighting with adjustable brightness targeted in different areas, as desired.
Sleek, slim appearance adds sophistication to any home interior
Picking the right track lights for your home interior
Track lights fit well in a minimalist interior, but they are not incompatible with traditional-style interiors. Such lights would surely add a contemporary flair and inject a sense of fun into an older home.
Aside from the clean-lined, sleek appearance, track lights are easy to install. For homes with only one power source, replacing existing ceiling light fixtures with track lights does not require rewiring. Since track lights are flexible and versatile, you can position them however you like and still make changes later on.
