Home Lighting Tips

Ways an electrician can light up your home

If you are installing a home theatre system, wanting to add some lights to an outdoor area or you are looking to improve the lighting in your kitchen, the team of Sydney electricians at Electrician To The Rescue can help. From installation to connection of ceiling fans or power points, lighting and home security, Electrician To The Rescue has all your electrical needs covered.

Adding better lighting to your kitchen not only makes the room more aesthetically pleasing, you’ll probably enjoy cooking and eating in there more as well. You could add lighting over the bench tops, around the stove or sink, or even around your cupboards. Extra lighting means you can read your recipes and enjoy the whole preparation of food and time spent in the kitchen, not to mention impressing friends and family with the stylish look of your bright, fashionable kitchen.

Your team of Sydney electricians at Electrician To The Rescue can brighten your outdoor living area with new lighting, this can include decking lighting, lighting around pools, spas, gazebos, the BBQ area or around the garden. Our technicians are highly trained and fully licensed and qualified and know the best wiring and safety measures needed to keep you and your family safe.

Lighting for your home theatre can provide real movie theatre ambience during the film, but before and after the movie you still want it to be well lit. You can recreate the full movie theatre feel with shelf or table lighting or even floor lighting, perhaps you have movie posters or wall art you want highlighted – lighting can be installed to illuminate the whole room, or just specific areas.

Installing lights is just one type of service the team at Electrician To The rescue perform, from rewiring to new wiring. Check out our testimonials: thanks to our fast dispatch system we get to you when you need us. When you use a medium sized electrical company like Electrician To The Rescue you get service from a business big enough to handle your needs professionally, but small enough to care and to provide a personal touch.

If you have decided to renovate a room, or even your whole house many people tend to *over look* the lighting – it’s just an *after-thought* but unfortunately this can have an impact on the feel, function and ambiance of your room. The electricians in Sydney from Electrician To The Rescue don’t want to see you making a mistake so we have these tips to share with you today.

Remember the lights you choose shouldn’t be judged purely on your budget

Using lighting to make your home feel cosy

Did you know that lighting can do more than just brighten your room? You can use the lighting in any room to make it look and feel cosier. Today the electricians in Sydney from Electrician To The Rescue will show you how.

  • The Living Room – in general you do a lot in the living room, from watching TV to reading a book, but the room doesn’t have to be all about overhead lighting. If you want to watch TV without harsh lighting over-head or just curl up with a good book and relax – there are actually a few lighting options Electrician To The Rescue can help with anything from mood lighting to task lighting. By having a variety of lighting options in your living room you can change the feel of a room when you like. Recessed lighting can brighten your whole room while turning on a floor or table lamp can make the same room feel cosy.
  • The Bedroom – Your bedroom is the one room you want in your house that does feel cosy. Rather than one overhead light choose lighting that reflects your style – in general people opt for over head lighting and bedside lamps but have you considered mood lighting? Recessed lighting or a softly illuminated bead head can create a romantic and cosy environment. The electricians in Sydney from Electrician To The Rescue can install a dimmer switch that will allow you to really control your bedroom lighting.
  • The Bathroom – bathroom lighting has always been overlooked, from overhead lighting to a light over your vanity those were your two options, but times have changed. While you still need *basic* overhead lighting why not consider pendant style lighting, wall lights or even adding a table lamp. Different style, different placement and you can change the mood of your bathroom whenever you want.
  • The Kitchen – This room too is often overlooked but lighting can change the mood or feel of the room to suit the *occasion*. Recessed lights under cabinets can be used as both mood and task lighting, while lighting inside cabinets can be used for display and thanks to LED lighting you can add shimmer by installing lighting that illuminates the room’s splash back in the dark.

Consider the room….

The light you ultimately choose should depend on the use of each room, remember lights can be different – there are 3 main styles –

TASK – These lights are best used in work areas such as over desks in the home office, a dressing table in a bedroom or over bench tops, the stove and the kitchen sink in your kitchen

ACCENT – these lights are used to focus on a feature – to illuminate a specific ornament or artwork or to cast a shadow over a set space.

AMBIENT – this type of lighting is your *all over* all purpose style lighting – such as down lights in the living room or a chandelier in a dining room.

Start by using ambient lighting

At Electrician To The Rescue our team of electricians in Sydney always suggest you start with ambient lighting – these are the lights used to light up a whole room. Once you have chosen the ambient lighting for your renovation you can then layer your space with task and/or accent lighting. Don’t go too overboard with down lights as they can clutter the ceiling. Focus on setting a certain style or tone for your room, you can always consider having the electricians in Sydney from Electrician To The Rescue install a dimmer switch, this will allow you complete control of your lighting no matter the time of day.

Add some task lighting

Add task lighting to reading areas – a small reading lamp on the table in your lounge room, or bedside your bed; or add some lighting above the mirror in your bathroom.
