Kitchen lights come in an infinite number of varieties; therefore, it is important to know what you are looking for first. If you begin your search without any idea of what you are shopping for, you will most likely end up lost and confused. Here are some ideas for the types of kitchen lighting you should look at when starting your search.

Whether the lamp is for our front yard or our back yard, it has to be up to standard because this can make or break the beauty of your outdoor space. Making the right choice is also imperative when it comes to promoting security at home. Your home will become less of a target for prowling burglars if your outdoor space is well-lit as this shows passers-by that the space is extensively used.

There are now a wide range of light fittings available, making it easier to find the right colour and style to compliment the period of your home, the existing furniture and other design features. You will need to consider the some practicalities, such as the size of light fitting selected for a particular space and recessed or wall lights can be a better in homes with low ceilings. Many High Street shops only have a limited selection of light fittings that fit in with current interior trends. If you are looking for something specific, or a colour that isn't this season's fashion, then you may have more success with an online lighting specialist such as Lights On Lights Off, who can offer a much wider selection.

Although the original strip light is not known for its aesthetically pleasing qualities, the newer versions of this lighting solution are much classier than the original, retaining their modern look but instead being more delicate and discrete, emitting a more pleasant light. Like the other two types of LED cupboard lights mentioned above, strip lights can be placed on the underside of cabinets to illuminate work surfaces,and can be battery powered or plugged into the mains, depending on the preferences of the homeowner.

You really shouldn't cut your fingers with a knife on the worktop because you cast a shadow standing below your nice new chandelier. Task kitchen lighting must be targeted and bright. If there is only general lighting in your kitchen, you can see where task light is needed. Just look around to see where there are any dark surfaces in your kitchen. If you see a dark spot on a worktop or counter top, you should have a task light there. If you have a kitchen island, put a few pendant lights above it as task light. If you cannot see what is in the sink... you know the rest.

It can be extremely effective in the right situation, but there are a couple of things that you need to understand in order to decide whether it's right for you. Firstly, LED lights generally emit a lot less light than the lights that they can replace; to get around this problem the light is concentrated in to a narrow beam. These lights are perfect for highlighting, for shop displays or task lighting. What they generally aren't so good for is lighting large spaces, without careful design you can often end up with bright spots and dark spaces. There are of course exceptions to this, such as some LED tubes (designed to replace fluorescent tubes) which light spaces nicely but these can be relatively expensive. There is also an issue at the moment with reliability, while the life expectancy of LED lights is generally 35,000 to 50,000 hours, as many as 15% fail in early life, even in branded product.

They are installed flush with the ground and can be walked over, highlighting the usable floor area rather than giving a vast amount of light. As well as marking out space with light they are decorative and add an ambience to and outside social area. Backlights are much the same as uplights but smaller and placed from behind features to create interesting shadows. Downlights are really a practical rather than decorative lighting and usually designed to fix on walls and placed to give light to walkways, although they can be used to light up larger activity areas. Many are motion sensitive so just illuminate and area long enough to be able to see the way to tread. Motion sensitive lighting needs to be positioned with thought as placed near trees, the wavering branches can cause them to turn on or flicker. Path lights are usually a low-level lighting with a spreading light marking out pathways and guiding from one place to another. Path lights are available in an array of shapes, colours and sizes and usually come on spikes that can easily be pushed into the ground along side a pathway. If solar lights are used, which are ideal for this purpose, they can be installed in minutes, seconds even!

A chandelier or pendant light can be ideal to illuminate the dining table, or you can also place several small hanging lights. In bedrooms install a general lights, put lamps on the bedside tables for reading, and lights in the closet area. In children rooms utilize dimmable wall lamps instead of floor lamps or table lamps.

A successful design can modulate the quality and quantity of light to address the users' psychological and physiological needs. Indeed, lighting is one of the most powerful elements of interior design. It is the Rosetta Stone that allows our eyes to see and interpret the world around us: without which will be a built environment devoid of color, contrast, and interest.

The plethora of light bulbs and lighting technology on the market and the rapid pace of development in the industry is both cause for consumer celebration and caution. Greater range of choice gives consumers unprecedented freedom but also means it is more important than ever to choose the right light bulb for the right application. Comparing lumens per watt values is an easy way to identify the most "light" efficient lamp in terms of brightness. But to work out which lamp type is best for a specific application in terms of energy efficiency the following things need to be considered: wattage, lamp life, daily use, lamp cost and lighting output required. The best way to do this is with an energy saving calculator. By entering specific values you can compare your current light bulbs with those you are considering replacing them with and make an informed lighting decision based on an energy saving forecast.

RGB LEDs are like the internal combustion engine: Reliable, abundant, easy to use and manufacture, and fairly well developed in terms of the potential for new or breakthrough technologies. There are lots on manufacturers and each has their own set of patents and "tricks of the trade" to help give themselves some marketing leverage over the competition. White LEDs are like the alternative energy industry for transportation: Quite varied, still relatively "new", still needing to be market proven, more expensive, more challenging to manage. There are many manufacturers, each using a different technology or combination of technologies to achieve what they believe is the "the next big thing." Following this analogy, RGB LEDs are mature enough to compete on cost alone and the drop in costs is what fuels new applications for colored LEDs that had not been thought of previously. White LEDs, on the other hand are still developing technically and should not be shopped based on cost alone. The need for quality and longevity is what fuels the further research and development into white LEDs.
