Gina’s home: new black track ceiling mount light in the kitchen

It may have taken 2 years but I finally found the perfect light for our kitchen — a sleek, matte black track light with 3 spotlights from project illumination specialists Experience La Luce.

During our build, we had a lighting expert design a lighting plan for us, which included a light above the kitchen bench. Originally we were planning on installing a suspended linear fitting but once the dining pendant light went in, I started to think it would be too much to have 2 pendants so close together so we left the kitchen light out (but ran wiring to allow for a light in future).

Months went by and then years and I still hadn’t found the right light for our kitchen!

Then I was introduced to Experience La Luce, a unique supplier of quality commercial, industrial and architectural lighting products. Based in Sydney, they work Australia-wide and have an incredible range of modern lights, including ceiling fixtures, spotlight systems, recessed lights, pendants and outdoor lights too.

I spoke with their team about my kitchen and the type of look I wanted to create and they recommended the Danny T Air. It’s a minimalist ceiling mount track light and I loved the look of it right away. All that was left to decide was what size, whether to go with black or white, and what coloured rims to have in the spotlights (black, white or gold).

I decided to go with a 2m track with 3 black spotlights and black rims and had the light installed last week. I couldn’t be happier with how it looks in our kitchen — it provides definition and much needed task lighting!

I’m so happy to have ticked off another job on my seemingly endless list of ‘to dos’ around the home, haha.

If you’re looking for architectural lights for your home, I recommend talking with the team at Experience La Luce who were so helpful in finding the perfect fit for my home.

  1. Hi Gina,
    Just wondering what length the island bench is? I have a 3 mt island bench & trying to work out how long the light track should be in relation to bench length? I have the option of 2mt or 2.4mt track. Thank you!

  2. Hi Gina

    Could I ask what downlight you used, and what do you have any idea what colour temperature of light bulbs is best for the kitchen? Ours is similar to yours in regards to having a lot of natural light, but that doesn’t really help at night time, does it?

    Thank you for your thoughts.

    • Hi Dinah, we used warm 3000k LED light bulbs throughout our house. There have been so many emails about lights this week that we’ll publish an article on the topic shortly 🙂

      • Thank you. I ended up ordering the black lights and went through Experience La Luce on your recommendation. This company is hands down the worst company I have had to deal with during my kitchen renovation.i don’t know how they are still in business. They barely answer phones but then once I got contact there was always 3-4 days lag between further contact and that was only because I harassed them. Finally my order arrived but alas the track was missing. I would not recommend them to anyone and thought you should know my experience. Maybe if I had a blog it may have been better.

        • Hi Dinah, I’m so sorry and disappointed to hear of your experience 🙁 I’d never recommend a company that I would’t personally use (or have used) myself and I don’t know what could have caused this for you. I’ve alerted the team at Experience La Luce of your experience though and I hope they will be in touch shortly. Please let me know if you don’t hear from them within the week and I will follow up again. Other than the delay with your light, how did your kitchen renovation go? I hope you love the new space and it was worth the wait! xx
