LED rope lights are very popular as the strand or 'rope' can fit into tight spaces and easily be concealed, allowing the light to be emitted as a soft glow without seeing the source. This works especially well in water features, swimming pools and under the edges of decking or built-in seating. RGB (Red Green Blue) LED lights allow the colour of the light to be changed remotely at the push of a button, instantly changing the look and feel of the area.
The seemingly straightforward task of choosing a light bulb has however become a bit of a mine field in recent years. 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.
The commode - This area is definitely an area for task lighting. There should be enough light in this area to be able to comfortably see what you are doing without a lot of glare. The light shouldn't be so low that it is hard for your eyes to see what you are doing. This light should be a comfortable reading light. This light could be supplied by recessed lighting above the toilet, a small chandelier, or maybe a decorative spotlight over the area. The idea is to bring elegance and style to the bathroom while giving enough light to accomplish your duties and possibly some reading to pass the time.
