Indoor wall spotlights and outdoor spotlights, the differences
How many times does it happen that we want a certain product but then we discover that it is not suitable for the environment in which we would like to place it? To remove the doubts, let's try to understand which are the best outdoor and indoor LED spotlights. First of all, let's start with the features. Inside a home, indoor wall spotlights are suitable for placing in all rooms, but they can never be used as outdoor spotlights because they would be damaged during the first rain. So how to buy outdoor spotlights? Everything is in the IP protection index. This indicates the protection level of outdoor spotlights in contact with water or against accidental or intentional contact with materials or human contact. The first digit of the degree of protection indicates the resistance through contact with solid bodies, while the second indicates the protection against liquids. Let's see the most common degrees of protection:
- IP20: gives protection up to solid bodies greater than 12 mm. It does not protect against the penetration of liquids. Furthermore, this degree must not allow the penetration of solid bodies.
- IP44: protects against solid bodies larger than 1mm. Protects against dripping or splashing liquids.
- IP68: allows total protection from solid bodies and can be immersed in water up to a depth of one meter.
This latest IP grade represents the solution for the best outdoor LED spotlights.

If you want to use a series of square ceiling spotlights in the case of minimal furniture or cylindrical ceiling spotlights if you want to illuminate a certain element of the room, perhaps enhancing a particular painting or furniture.

The rectangular LED spotlights, on the other hand, can be used as a path marker in a hall of the house, in a corridor or in a staircase that requires scenographic light points. Rectangular LED spotlights ideal for this type of lighting are Dart by Faro Outdoor for outdoors or Febe by Ideal Lux. The cubic spotlights, on the other hand, are ideal for recreating a three-dimensional light point to illuminate a kitchen island or a modern walk-in closet. Among the cubic spotlights in our extensive catalog we mention the very modern and minimal Ideal Lux collection.
