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.
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.
Also, in the kitchen area, it is best to use pendant lights with open top designs. It can be helpful in making the task lighting softer.
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 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.
