Regardless of space, great lighting design can mean the difference between an average room, and an area that displays purpose, mood and charm.  Used properly, lighting can create an ambience that is perfect for entertaining; provide a feeling of warm and harmony in winter and functionality in a working space like a kitchen.

An amazing lighting display takes into account the space in which it is intended to illuminate, the orientation of lighting to do this and the theme, mood or scene it is meant to create. The correct choice of Lighting in areas like dining rooms can set the tone or complement existing furnishings. The selection of colour render, whether it be warm, cool or daylight is important when lighting various rooms or generating a particular feel throughout your home or business space.

Most people will select a warm dimmable light in bedrooms and other rooms designated for relaxing, whilst a cool or daylight is chosen in functional areas like kitchens. There’s a tendency to have warmer light in older colonial type homes, whilst currently there is a trend to use white daylight in more modern spaces, particularly with clean white walls and ceilings.

Below is a list of the various lighting available:
lightingRecessed Lighting such as the “Halogen downlight”, and the increasingly popular recessed LED lights are a great way to achieve that modern, sophisticated and vibrant atmosphere in your home. Whilst the Halogen Downlight has remained popular, the LED has become a cost effective choice in the long term. This is because the LED lights are low maintenance and use far less energy. The LED uses 1/6 of the power (comparable light in Lumens) and has a life expectancy of 40000 hours compared to 4000 hours for a halogen lamp. Whichever option you choose, the Recessed Downlight creates a sleek, modern and effective look to your home.

Pendant lighting is nice way to create an affect/mood to match in with your colour scheme, trimmings and finishes. The Pendant is really effective in homes with high ceilings and adds character to rooms without taking over the space. They are available in numerous designs and have become quite popular for this reason.

Pedestal Lights are a fantastic idea. Whether it be in the lounge, living or bedroom it gives the homeowner greater flexibility when creating that ideal setting. Like the Pendants, they come in many designs but, they also allow you to light which ever area of the room you choose.  For instance, reading areas, dark lit spots, and voids which need enhancing.

Sconce Lights are a perfect way to light up the hallway. They provide light where light is often minimised and illuminates wall features or become the feature itself.

Directional Lights are especially effective when illuminating those special photos, artworks or wall features. They are particularly effective when used with a Dimmer.

The various types of lighting mentioned can be further enhanced with the use of Dimmers and Digital Controllers such as Clipsal C-Bus, Dynalite etc. Furthermore, using control gear to create ambiance also saves on power usage helping you and the environment.

Ceiling Fans are another way to create mood while serving to cool down rooms and displace stale air. Today, there is a lot of choice when it comes to choosing the style of fan that best suits your needs. All fans can be controlled with the use of fan controllers, helping to regulate temperatures and saving on costs. With the use of a Remote Control, you can have a Fan/Light combination with no extra wiring required. This is especially good where the Fan will replace the existing Light in the middle of the room.

Whether you are thinking of selling your home or opening a café, restaurant or other small business we encourage you to think about your lighting Design. By changing your old light fittings to something more modern will not only give the room a well needed face lift but can go a long way to transforming space making the area appear larger and more spacious. This can only have a positive effect on the sale price of your property or the amount of patrons and customers that enter your doors.

Important to note: when choosing your lighting be mindful of the space you are trying to illuminate. Take into consideration the colour of the walls and flooring as darker colours absorb more light. Furthermore, pay attention to the orientation of the room and its proximity to natural light. Throughout the daylight hour’s space that occupies near common walls, rear shopfronts, basement areas and the like will need extra lighting.
