Your bathroom should be a place where you can relax and unwind. Especially during the winter months, when it’s cold and miserable outside. Imagine being able to sink into a steaming, sweet smelling bath and forgetting about the outside world.
To help ensure your bathroom has that spa feel, and offers all the luxury and sophistication you desire, it’s imperative you’ve got the right lighting. The right source of light can complement your interior décor and impact the illumination of your space.
Today’s blog entry is about how clever lighting and sensible domestic or commercial lighting can thriftily create an astonishing effect in your space. For example, harsh overhead lighting can be a rather unfriendly in what should be a cosy family living room. Or dull lighting in a clothing store can put off customers by not thoroughly illuminating prospective purchases. Taking steps to install the RIGHT lighting concept for your environment is essential.
For many of our clients, clever lighting needs to fit to a budget. We live in times of economic uncertainty, so making sure our lighting solutions are effective, well-explained and budget-friendly is a big part of what we do.
Track lighting systems can be a real frugal friend in both domestic and commercial environments. They are, of course, very useful in large open plan shop layouts where displays, products etc. frequently alter (lots of high street clothing stores and department stores in particular employ track lighting systems) Track lighting can allow incredible dexterity when it comes to directional lighting, highlight lighting, wall lighting etc.
In terms of clients looking for a more subtle lighting solution, adjustable recessed downlights – the MARIT – 12v AR111 75w in brushed aluminium, for example – can provide the same excellent interior lighting freedom. We stock numerous adjustable recessed lighting products suitable for both the commercial and domestic lighting environments.
Making the best decisions about lighting can be tough for a layman, particularly when budget and long-term investment are on the table. For more information and advice, head over to our online “Help” area.
As a commercial lighting specialist in the UK, we spend a great deal of time sourcing lighting solutions for use across the commercial spectrum. Of course, a great deal of our clientele are after the likes of high end artistic outdoor wall lights or large scale cost-effective energy efficient lighting, but we’re also proud to cater to the needs of small businesses.
The festive season is upon us, and whilst for many commercial environments that means it’s time to whip out the inflatable Santas and fairy lights, we know from experience that a little seasonal lighting subtlety can go a long way! Here are a few tips for small shops etc. looking to create a seasonal nuance with clever commercial lighting (rather than a glittering grotto!)
- Coloured light bulbs can be just as effective as seasonal decorations. Blues, pinks and purples are cool, welcoming colours. Although red and green are the colours of Christmas, it can be difficult to create a convivial atmosphere with such colours. Aim adjustable lighting systems to the walls and ceilings for best effect.Chandeliers and decorative lights can be wonderfully combined with coloured lighting. For example, the Caeli 5 x 35W Pendant light or Campana 6 x 20W G4 in crystal chrome are exquisite when used with violet or blue lighting.
- Clever festive commercial lighting is all about subtlety. If you’re looking for seasonal lighting that’s refined, cost-effective and a great long-term investment, take a look through our online “Decorative Lighting” area.
