    Just so everyone knows I really appreciate the advice. I can tell you how to build roads or bridges but I am buggered with DIY haha.

    I assume something like this would do the trick? I think I would need a longer piece of ducting though. Also, I the bulb it comes with is a warm white and I want a cool white bulk but can't find one to match? The Q&A on there has a load of people asking the same, anyone got a clue?

    Yes, that would do it - the ducting though is like a concertina-style, it flexes like a trombone so you might find it will stretch enough to reach? I replaced the one in my old house in the U.K. (goes from the centre of the bathroom ceiling out through the soffit) and what looked like a short duct stretched out to double the size! (You can buy extra ducting though, I think B&Q used to do it so I get Screwfix do).

    Can’t help you on the bulb, but Tiffany on here is your man for lightbulbs!

    You need to find out what type of lamp holder is on the fitting and you will be able to purchase a lamp to suit what you want for it.

    Depends what the holder is. A lot of newer LED lights are integrated now, so you can't change the bulbs.

    My experience of integrated LED down lighters has been negative.

    We installed 12 in our basement at some cost, only 4 of them are currently working after about 3 years.

    That’s the issue my customers have at work, they hate how some of those are integrated and how it could be a pain in the arse for them “the average home owner”.

    Legitimately have a couple of customers refuse to buy anything LED.

    Integrated LED's do last longer on average, most issues come from cheap components, not necessarily cheap for the consumer, mind. Also, they're not irreplaceable but I wouldn't fancy fault finding and changing out the Diodes and/or boards in them.

    That's what we did with most of ours. Only had one lamp (bulb) go on us in about 5 years. Only one toilet, our bedroom and the kitchen have integrated LED's in the fittings

    the ones we had, seem to have a cheap paste that degrades over time causing contacts to break over time.

    i could fix them or build new ones, but I cannot guarantee them working overtime either
