In the garden, lights can really make the space come alive. Having lights in the trees and lights near to a table will ensure you can eat outside all year round (subject to the temperature of course!) Another aspect of outside lighting is for security purposes. Having a light that comes on when there is motion nearby can be a very effective deterrent for anyone wishing to break into your home. Being lit up, the house can be clearly visible from all around and this makes it much less likely to be targeted by burglars. Interior lighting can also work as a good security measure. Leaving a few lights on around the home that are clearly visible from outside makes the house appear to be occupied so think about this when planning your home lighting too. With so much to think about when it comes to home lighting, it is important you make a good plan. Security lighting and all interior lighting is important to both the look and feel of the house and of course for security purposes.
New light bulbs: what’s the difference? Traditional incandescent bulbs use a lot of energy to produce light and over 90% of the energy is wasted as heat. Whereas, the energy-efficient light bulbs use about 20%-80% less energy than the traditional incandescent, saving a lot of money.
LED lamps create minor heat thus lessening the power utilized by your AC. LED light has no harmful IR and UV rays. LED lamps don’t have any mercury such as Fluorescent lamps. LED lights are quite eco-friendly and can be disposed conveniently.
This lighting is very popular in modern homes as it hides the fixtures and provides an effect that is dramatic. It can be directed towards the ceiling or down the wall providing a washing effect. Cove lighting can be found in commercial setting as well as in residential homes.
The same method works well in bathrooms where task lighting is just as important as atmospheric lighting. The additional consideration to make in bathrooms however is the high level of water and moisture in the room. That means lighting especially designed for bathrooms should only be used as any other type of lighting could be dangerous. Bedrooms and the sitting room also need good home lighting. Task lighting may be necessary in various spots throughout each although more thought needs to be put into the design of the lights used. Sitting rooms are used for entertaining, so you do not want large, garish lights displayed. Instead it is a good idea to choose lights that blend in with the rest of the decor. Standing lamps make excellent task lighting and offer the added bonus of being stylish and attractive. These can work well in both sitting rooms and bedrooms. A bedroom will need good bedside lights for reading and if there is a desk in the room, investing in a good quality table lamp is also worthwhile.
