Often lighting is the last thing to be considered when designing a home. It is in fact a very important part of the overall feel of the house and getting it wrong can be disastrous. There is a lot to think about when it comes to lighting. For example what the room is to be used for will affect the type of lighting you need. Whether the room needs atmospheric lighting can alter your choices too. It is not just the inside of the home that needs good lighting either. The garden or outside area can greatly benefit from some good quality lighting and will enable you to enjoy the space with friends and family. Security lighting is another factor that needs considering when planning the home lighting as this can act as a good deterrent to thieves. This article discusses home lighting and why it is a good idea to plan everything out correctly.
What are the different lighting choices available? There are many energy-saving light bulbs available, such as compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), light emitting diodes (LEDs), etc. Although they cost more than the traditional incandescent bulbs, however, save a lot of money because they use less energy. One can easily find these in almost every hardware and home improvement store and can be fixed by taking help of a professional electrician.
Solar garden lighting is another cost-effective way to bring light to your flowering garden. Solar lights use a single battery composed of Nicam (nickel and cadmium) which is charged throughout the day by sunlight. At dusk, solar garden lights automatically turn on and at dawn, they automatically turn off. Again, solar garden lighting is available in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. Colorful stings of lanterns, butterflies, stars, hummingbirds, and many other shapes can be found easily. Also solar statues, stakes, rocks and poles can be used to illuminate garden pathways.
In cove lighting the fixtures are hidden and what counts is the way the light is spread on the ceiling or the walls. It can provide form and function. The aluminum casing of low profile works as a cove and the optics offer unplanned uniform lighting for corridor and office application. If there is a recess or cove present then asymmetric lighting solution with adjustable aiming can be used.
What is Color Rendering Index? The Color Rendering Index (CRI) is measuring the ability of a light source to stimulate the colors of various objects precisely along with the sunlight. Though there are critics of the subjective color used, the CRI is extensively utilized as a measurement of the quality of the light.
