Types of home lighting

In the majority of homes, you will find a combination of three different styles of lighting. Each style has it's specific purpose and can be used together within one room.

Ambient Lighting

Ambient: This style of lighting is typically used to light an entire room evenly. ie. Lounge Room or Bedroom.

Accent Lighting

Accent: This style of lighting is used to focus on a particular point within the room. ie. Trophy room or feature wall.

Task Lighting

Task: This style of lighting is used to light up specific tasks within a room. ie. Study/studio desk, bedside wall lamps.

Energy-efficient lighting

Did you know that you can cut a massive chunk from your electricity bill just from changing the types of light bulbs you use? Our team of electricians can help you to convert your home from incandescent to LED or CFL.

  • Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL): These are a smaller bulb style equivalent to the larger tube-style fluorescent lights you see in warehouses and classrooms. These lights give off a similar glow to an incandescent bulb but at 1/2 to 3/4 of the running costs.
  • Light-Emitting Diode (LED): Commonly mistaken as a downlight, these bulbs are twice as bright as a CFL and Incandescent. The running costs are a little bit less than a CFL bulb but the life span out does a CFL by over 15,000 hours.
