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.
Retractable cords allow you to use one light more efficiently if you need more illumination without needing to use other recessed or ambient lighting at the same time. You may also want white LED lights for brightness and to save on energy costs.
Another fun idea to add to your outdoor oasis is solar-powered fiber optic gazing balls. These unique ornaments add loveliness to your garden at night and even in the day. The solar collector gathers energy during the day to power the fiber optics in the gazing ball at night. At dusk, the fiber optics illuminates the gazing ball and adds instant ambiance to any garden. These typically will remain running for 4-6 hours a night.
How about uplighting? Uplighters are ground-based lights that can be used to light specific features such as pop up banners or signage. Perfect for corporate events, use them to highlight advertising or sponsors.
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.
