You will also need to consider where you would like your new lighting to be installed. While our recommended electricians can assist you on optimum placement, it is worth thinking about where you would benefit from more light.
For example, in a kitchen, you may find that you struggle to see your work surfaces when you’re relying solely on a central ceiling light. In this scenario, your kitchen is likely to benefit from installing multiple LED spotlights or even under cabinet lighting. This will allow you to illuminate your work surfaces more clearly to make meal prep easier.
In other areas of your home, you may prefer to have the option of more flexible lighting that allows it to be brighter when you need it, but more subdued at other times.
For example, in a lounge, you may like it nice and bright when you’re reading, but prefer to have lower light if you’re relaxing or watching television.
Since lamps are not always possible, as they tie up power sockets and require cables to be run into the room, you may prefer to have adjustable lighting installed with a dimmer switch or two separate switches to have less or more lighting as required.
