Q. What if my dining light outlet is not centred above my table?
A. You can either buy a fixture hung on chain and swag it or have a qualified electrician come in and move the box. You can also change it to track lighting, which has a movable power source.
Q. What is a lumen?
A. A lumen is a unit that measures the total amount of visible light emitted. This is how much light a bulb gives off. Do not go by the Watts, that is how much electricity is being used.
Q. What are advantages of using LEDs?
A. LEDs operate on significantly less energy than incandescent lights, which are wildly inefficient. They also last longer (average 10 years of normal use) and are more durable because they are solid state, shock-proof, and can be housed safely in plastic instead of glass. LEDs will save you money by consuming less power, requiring fewer replacements, and generating much less heat, which in turn combine to result in lower cooling costs.
Q. How can I light my room properly?
A. There are three layers of lighting: Ambient or General Lighting, Task Lighting, and Accent or Decorative lighting. You should incorporate each type in every room.
Q. How do I get proper light in my bathroom?
A. To avoid shadows and to fully surround your face with flattering light, install a fixture at least 24” wide over the mirror, plus two wall sconces or pendants on each side of the mirror at least 28” apart and 60” from the floor.
