Task lighting is invariably going to be needed in the home. This kind of lighting is used in the kitchen and the bathroom most often because these are the places where the majority of \"tasks\" are carried out. Whether it is chopping carrots, cooking a curry or applying makeup, good task lighting is absolutely essential. In the kitchen you need bright lights over the counter tops and over the cooker too. Often houses have large open plan kitchens or kitchens with a table in for eating from. In these cases you don't want bright task lighting on all the time. During meals or when you are simply relaxing in the room you are going to want a calmer, more atmospheric glow. The ideal solution is having bright task lighting with dimmer switches. When you need a lot of light they can be turned up high, and when you need only a little light they can be turned right down.
An average household spends about 5% of its energy budget to lighting. Switching to energy-efficient lighting is one of the easiest ways to cut the energy bills.
