Dining room lighting
As much as restaurants really like to dim the lights low for some mega mood lighting, in your dining room, there needs to be enough light for you to see your guests' faces as well as your food.
Hallway, landing and staircase lighting
Landings can often be dark, so the lighting here needs to be bright enough for putting on shoes, as well as welcoming guests.
Think table and floor lamps, chandeliers and pendants. More commonly known as mood lighting, a soft glow will spread across the room providing enough light to chill and chat without a harsh glare.
What it says on the tin. Great for prepping dinner, helping the kids with their homework or anything else that requires extra lighting. Desk lamps and under cabinet lighting are examples.
Show off a prized painting or highlight a garden feature. The idea is to draw attention to a focal point and enhance details. Wall sconces, recessed lights and spotlights will do the trick.
Smart lighting comes in a range of shapes, sizes and colour tones to create a calming ambience, and can be dimmed depending on your mood. Schedule them to turn on and off and control them from your phone when out and about for added security and energy efficiency.
LED stands for ‘light-emitting diode’. Basically, it’s a technology which means that LED bulbs use up to 80% less energy than incandescent and halogen bulbs. Their lifespan is approx. 10,000 – 25,000 hours but some can last up to 50,000 hours. That means they last twice as long as fluorescent bulbs, and more than 10 times longer than incandescent.
An animal-themed table lamp is sure to give your space a quirky and playful look. Perfect to pop on your console table; why not go for an endearing elephant for reading or a squirrel as you study?
Industrial lamps are a great choice for those who prefer a contemporary or more stripped back style. With metallic shades and oversized fittings, this type of lighting lends itself perfectly to open-plan spaces.
Switches and dimmers
They turn the light on, and off, and come in a variety of finishes. Dimmers control the brightness, either by touch, a switch, or through a smart phone.
We don't expect anyone to be a bright spark when it comes to lighting. So we thought we'd shed some light on what some of the terms you'd expect to come across actually mean. You're welcome.
- CFL or, 'compact fluorescent light bulbs' are energy-saving and designed to replace incandescent bulbs.
- Lumens measure light. Basically, the more lumens, the brighter the light.
- Kelvin is the bulb's colour temp. The lower the kelvin the warmer the light, and vice versa.
- LED or, 'light-emitting diode'. Up to 80% more efficient than incandescent bulbs and lasts up to 6 times longer!
- Colour rendering index (CRI) is measured on a scale of 0-100 and indicates how well a light reflects colour. The higher the CRI, the more accurately colours are reproduced. 80% or higher is ideal for home everyday use.
- Wattage tells you how much power a bulb uses. More watts mean more power – not more brightness – for that you need to look at the lumens.
