I think 9W LEDs would be quite bright so can they be dimmed?

I'm using an array of 4-5W LEDs in my kitchen and it's plenty bright enough. Each of mine produces around 400-450 lumens and are on a pitch of about 900mm.

And don't make the mistake of putting them in symmetrically. Far better to group them where the areas of activity are.  They look better as well.


And get a spare (or two depending on how many you get) because if/when one of them fails then trying to get a matching one a few years downline will be nigh impossible.

I have a room measuring 10 x 17.5 foot and would like to put some 9 watt warm white LED downlights in they have a 60 degree beam as well. Just need to know how many I should have installed. The room is a living room from an open plan living/dining room.
