Another energy saving option is the halogen energy saver. These lamps only offer around a 30% energy saving over incandescents and typically last 2,000-5,000 hours but they do have some advantages over LED and CFLs which are worth considering. In some cases truly retrofit LED can be hard to find and difficulties with the fitting and size of the lamp can occur. The nature of a CFL means its appearance differs from that of an incandescent. Halogen energy savers are however available in a range of shapes including spot bulbs, GLS, candle, aluminium reflector and golf ball making them an easy retrofit replacement for many traditional incandescents and an option worth thinking about particularly if you require decorative on show lighting. For those wishing to retain the traditional shape of their lighting long term, a G9 halogen adaptor is a great way to do so. A G9 halogen capsule is fitted in to the adaptor base (available as SBC, BC, SES, ES) which is in turn screwed into a decorative cover. Once the halogen capsule has expired, the bulb can be unscrewed and only the capsule needs replacing - meaning your decorative lighting remains the same. Another advantage of halogen energy savers is that unlike some LED and CFL they are fully dimmable. Furthermore halogens and CFLs emit light evenly whereas LEDs emit light directionally so make sure to check the beam angle before purchasing to ensure you get the right light output.
These measurements of our light source are very useful when considering what we want our light to highlight most in the room. They help us decide what colors are needed to bring out our accents. Maybe there is a feature that needs to be hidden or displayed in a more creative way and choosing the correct light source can allow you to be more artistic with that color and the space available.
Now that we have considered all the different areas of the bathroom to light, and what types of lighting should go into each area, put it all together into a bathroom lighting plan and let your imagination take you to different areas of discovery to see what is out there. Visit your local lighting store and have them develop a lighting design plan with you and show you what all the different lighting types look like in your plan.
