Often people head down to the local DIY store or hardware shop. This of course does work and often you will find the lighting supplies you need. Is the cost however the lowest available? The chances are good that the costs are high. The trouble with regular shops on the high street is that they tend to have very high overheads. These costs have to be passed onto the customer in order to make the business viable. That is why there is always a premium on prices in shops on the high street. The other difficulty is that because DIY stores are not specialist lighting shops, they may be lacking some items that you need, or at least items you would want to be able to view before deciding what to buy. This is especially true of all commercial lighting supplies. A high street store just doesn't have the room to supply everything.
In the garden, lights can really make the space come alive. Having lights in the trees and lights near to a table will ensure you can eat outside all year round (subject to the temperature of course!) Another aspect of outside lighting is for security purposes. Having a light that comes on when there is motion nearby can be a very effective deterrent for anyone wishing to break into your home. Being lit up, the house can be clearly visible from all around and this makes it much less likely to be targeted by burglars. Interior lighting can also work as a good security measure. Leaving a few lights on around the home that are clearly visible from outside makes the house appear to be occupied so think about this when planning your home lighting too.
What is the main purpose of the light? Why are you going to be using a particular light? The light that you use on your mirror in the bathroom is going to be different than the lights that you have in your living room. Or, if you have a light in your kitchen thats over your chopping board, thats going to be different than the hood lamp that is over the oven. Keep your purpose in mind when youre shopping for your light fixtures, and that will help you get the right one(s) for your particular needs.
- And while it probably doesn't need to said, place the length of the light in the same direction as the length of the table.
