We are about to make some changes to our kitchen which include putting in
downlighters. I'm about to order the downlighters from Screwfix and I cannot
work out whether to use mains of low voltage downlighters.
In other parts of the house we have used low voltage downlighters. On the
face of it mains voltage down lighters look about the same and have the
advantages of not having the cost of a transformer and one less part
(transformer), to go wrong.
I'm sure there are some opinions from the group as to which would be better
for a kitchen.
Also: Screwfix now sell fire hoods for downlighters. Are these necessary for
a kitchen ceiling. I don't think the ceiling is fire rated as it is single
thickness ordinary plasterboard.
