Comparing cost: While replacing the light bulbs, the budget is an important factor in deciding which lighting option to choose. It is necessary to buy good quality bulbs that last longer rather than buying a dozen or cheaper ones that keep burning out.
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.
What time of the day is the event? Day to night? Consider what people attending the event will be doing. A corporate event, such as conference will need to be well lit, so attendees can read information and engage in conversations, whereas a wedding will require softer mood lighting.
Will there be other media such as video projection? If you are using special event lighting such as lasers and LED screens then it is imperative that the rest of your lighting does not overwhelm the main event. You may wish to choose a more simple setup to accommodate for special effects.
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.
