Creative Lighting Tips

Creative lighting tips

Today the team of electricians in Sydney from Electrician To The Rescue want to share some tips for lighting your home. If you are renovating or building many people still opt to use down lights – they are easy for the electricians in Sydney from Electrician To The Rescue to install and they are cheap to buy. If you really want to make more of an impact in your room, consider these creative lighting ideas.

  • PENDANTS – pendant lights are unique, pretty, dainty and artistic. Try tree trunk style pendants above the dining table, or there are some great geometric shapes if you want a more retro look
  • TRACK LIGHTING – Track lights are another way to add some WOW to the room. Strung from the ceiling track lighting attracts the eye – down lights never will – hidden up in the ceiling where no one sees them. Track lighting can add an artistic angle to any space. You need to keep it all quite simple though use several lights on the one track to shine light into different areas of the room. Track lighting isn’t just for the lounge room or kitchen they work really well in bedrooms too!
  • CHANDELIERS – these are another ceiling light you can use to make a bold or a subtle statement – it all depends on your ideas and needs for the room.
  • TABLE LAMPS – you won’t need the electricians in Sydney from Electrician To The Rescue to install these – unless you need an extra power point. People don’t take much notice of table lamps which is a shame as lamps can have a big impact in a room. There are some amazing table lamps out there that have twists and curves or look like they have melted into the table
  • FLOOR LAMPS – just like table lamps, floor lamps allow you to put your own *stamp* on the space. A floor lamp doesn’t HAVE to fit in with the rest of your decor either.

What Kind of Outdoor Lighting Solutions Should You Opt For?

The outdoors spaces on your property lend a very distinct charm and they become the backdrop of your home as well. You are also sure to want these areas to be well-lit after dark, as that’s the only way you’d be able to use them more optimally. A well-illuminated yard and garden also deters vandals and other unsavoury elements from trespassing on your property.

If you are planning on getting new outdoor installations fitted or are upgrading the existing ones, it’s a good idea to plan them well. A good residential electrician would be able to work closely with you and provide custom solutions that match your requirements to the tee. We at Electrician to the Rescue are a very well-established and credible company that has been operating in this space for a very long time.

We have developed a great deal of expertise in providing excellent electrical solutions for indoor and outdoor settings on commercial as well as residential properties. Regardless of what your specific requirements are, when you are considering getting outdoor lighting fixtures, the things that have to be taken into account are:

Type of installations

Today, you will find there are a large number of outdoor electrical fittings you can choose from. Since these installations can be energy-guzzlers, it makes a great deal of sense to choose energy-efficient installations such as LED bulbs and outdoor solar lights. The type of lights you choose will largely be dependent on the frequency of the use, the location the lights are going to be positioned, and the amount of sunlight that those spaces are exposed to. You can also choose to get motion-sensitive lights installed as they will automatically get turned-off after a certain period of time.

Outdoor lighting electrical safety

Here are some precautions we advise when you are getting outdoor lighting installed. This will help ensure the safety of the installations and prevent an electrical fire from erupting:

  • It’s important that you don’t use any indoor lighting fixtures in outdoor applications. The lights you opt for have to be designed specifically for outdoor use
  • Check the electrical cords on a regular basis, for signs of wear & tear
  • In case you are utilising any power from the mains, ensure the lights are grounded
  • Keep the contact details of a reliable local electrician handy, and ensure you get these fixtures serviced regularly; this will help identify whether there are any faults or fixtures that don’t work; they can be fixed before the problem gets exaggerated
  • The outdoor lights should be positioned away from things that may ignite
  • The power cords should all be at a safe distance from the walkways or any other areas where they might result in a tripping hazard
