CFL vs LED light bulbs: which is better? Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) are a version of the long tube fluorescent lights. They use less electricity than the traditional light bulbs. Moreover, an ENERGY STAR-rated CFL uses about one-fourth of the energy and lasts longer than a traditional incandescent that puts out the same amount of light. It contains mercury, which is a toxic heavy metal, which is harmful to both health and the environment.
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.
Overwhelmed? We appreciate that there is a lot to think about, and you could easily get carried away, leaving your budget behind. If you don't know where to start (or when to call it a day) the Light Design team can help you organise your design and offer advice on creating the perfect bespoke event lighting package.
What is your timeline? Last minute event lighting is not impossible, but we wouldn't recommend it. Suppliers might not have exactly what you need in stock and then your carefully crafted plan can start to fall to pieces. Allow enough time to shop around, and compare price of hires that include event production support and that all important insurance.
