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.
Slim Surface LED Downlight: There is slim surface LED downlight that is available which has a glare controlling lens for comfortable light distribution. It is a good alternative to fire-rated boxes and recessed housings with Air-Seal IC. It is the finest solution available with an integral driver for new construction.
You can use multiple small pendants or use a light system with multiple pendants. You can buy 3 or 4 large pendants to cover the entire island. Seagull Lighting pendants are available in designs with multiple bulbs (2 or 3) that are ideal for the kitchen. Even if you want to use multiple smaller-sized pendants over the counter, a good idea is to stick to big lights over this area. If you like smaller pendants, you can still use them in the kitchen such as above the sink.
You can buy modern industrial style pendants to make your kitchen stand out. Use etched glass with bronze finish for a traditional kitchen dcor. For more contemporary styles, brushed nickel may work best.
What is your timeline? Last minute event lighting is not impossible, but we wouldn't recommend it. Suppliers might not have exactly what you need in stock and then your carefully crafted plan can start to fall to pieces. Allow enough time to shop around, and compare price of hires that include event production support and that all important insurance.
