Discovering the Ideal Downlight Brands for Home Decor


Philips, which has always produced excellent products, guarantees also the quality of low-end, circulation-grade downlights.

Royal Philips of the Netherlands holds a dominant position in the industry of lighting. After integrating and splitting the lighting business for IPO in 2016, Signify, which holds the “Philips” brand, is still the world’s largest lighting company and has a certain say in the entire industry chain.

Philips home decoration downlights start at 20-30 yuan/piece. Lamps in this price range are mainly targeted at mass sales. Downlights are usually simple and have basic designs. Due to cost constraints, they do not have very sophisticated optical designs. If the light source quality is up to standard and the lamp body is made of solid materials, then it is worth the money.


Panasonic downlights are all the most common entry-level models. The PBT plastic Canfang series begins at 9 yuan/piece and the aluminum Yifang Series at 35 yuan/piece. Both models have excellent heat dissipation, and the light source quality and workmanship are comparable to those of Philips. On a par with each other, it is worth mentioning the IP44 waterproof series. Its light-emitting surface can prevent water dripping and splashing. This is a great choice for kitchens and baths. Panasonic is the only manufacturer of low-end or mid-end downlights for mass-market use. The price per piece is 25 Yuan. At first, due to cost constraints, its outer shell was also fully plastic.

At the mid- to low-end price range, NVC offers the most abundant selection of downlight styles.


NVC and Opple both have a leading position in the local lighting market. Their home decoration products follow the route of catching up with trends, pursuing popular models, and lowering prices based on iterations of the original versions. NVC won the title of “500 Most Valuable Brands”, according to an analysis report by the World Brand Laboratory published in 2021. The brand value was 43.687 billion Yuan. This is the 10th consecutive year.

NVC’s early experience in home photography was not as deep as Opple’s. But after 2015, it made a big move into home furnishing and deployed e-commerce channels. On Double 11 in 2020, NVC won the sales championship of lighting fixtures on the four major platforms of Tmall,, Suning, and Vipshop, and has become an e-commerce powerhouse on par with Opple.

Opple is not as unique as NVC’s Downlight products.

Why Buy Branded Downlights?

I should have a say in this issue. I have been dealing with lighting fixtures for more than ten years and have a relatively rational understanding of lighting fixtures.

Recently, I evaluated many spotlights and downlights, which included the main models of mainstream brands like Opple, NVC FSL Panasonic Seaton Philips yeelight West Rail Qiyi. Of course, there are also so-called Internet celebrity brands and miscellaneous brands on the Internet, let’s say hundreds of them at least.

First, let’s talk about the major differences between the mainstream brand and other brands of downlights.

If a brand in the same price range is compared with other brands, the brand will be completely defeated in terms of appearance, such as feel and weight.

The brand failed to compare brightness at the same power level.

In terms of core accessories and craftsmanship, the brand wins.

What does this mean? Listen up.

Weight and feel:

What the brand’s lamps focus on is just right. It’s not that they are reluctant to use materials, but that excess piles of materials are meaningless. X-brand lamps rely on their appearance to attract attention. This is the commonest way. These tricks can be played in front of novices, but they rely on piles of materials. The days of winning the market are long gone.

high brightness:

We will choose the brighter lamps if the power is equal. Anyway, there is no increase in price for brightening, and high brightness and energy saving are also one of the most commonly used methods by merchants.

But we only know it, but we don’t know why. High-brightness lamps basically come at the expense of accelerating light decay. The lamps of the brand you purchased this year are still the same after three years. Lamps with high brightness can lose their brightness after two years.

Many Internet celebrities have achieved luminous efficiency levels of more than 100lm/W.

Core accessories and process processing:

The gap between the internal workmanship of the lamps was so large that I was stunned when I wrote my answer. I did not have my phone and I could not see the detailed display.

Not only good accessories can make a good lamp, but craftsmanship also plays an important role. The image below shows how to remove the power supply from the The brand downlights.

You can see the core components of big brands clearly.

It is also worth mentioning that when using downlights for home lighting, there is no need to deliberately pursue deep anti-glare, because the beam angle of deep anti-glare downlights is relatively small. The light source must be combined with other light sources to avoid the appearance of a bright sky and a dark ground.

Mostly 50-70deg. The light spot that extends from the ceiling down to the floor in a commercial building of about 2.7M height is similar to this.

The distance between the walls of the downlight example in the picture above is 1M.

This type of downlight has a problem called “darkness at the top”. If the ceiling does not have enough fill light, it needs to be used with caution when used for basic lighting.

How to purchase downlights

The more expensive downlights are better, but is this really true? The answer is yes.

We may have missed an important question: Is it really useful to you?

Although Lambo is awesome, there is still a certain gap between its performance and Wuling Hongguang’s performance.

So my advice to you is to use enough and don’t waste it. Downlights worth tens of yuan are completely sufficient for home lighting.

The simplest configuration is:

  1. No video flash (basically equipped as standard)
  2. Generally, CRI Ra>80, R9>0
  3. Color tolerance less than 7SDCM
  4. Range RG/Rf80 to 100
  5. Service life. The service life of downlights of compliant brands will basically be 5 years +

This standard can be met by familiar brands. Even brands such as Panasonic and Philips have starting prices of around 10 yuan.
