Spotlights are gaining popularity steadily throughout the years in Singapore. Spotlights create ambiance to living space and help to create focus to main elements, like a gorgeous marble wall that you splurge on or a beloved painting that meant special to you. A home without focus can be confusing to the eyes.
However, there are cons on using spotlights too. Most spotlights are using LED drivers to generate light. But once the driver is fused, it is a hassle to find a compatible driver as not all places sell the right driver. There are different wattages and fittings available in the market and your spotlight will not work if you pick the wrong specs. Another issue with spotlights is the uncomfortable glares. Spotlights are created to have a focus and strong beam, resulting harsh light shining through. Many home-owners sway away from spotlights to avoid the glares spotlights are infamously known for.
