In earlier post we discussed about the different types of bulbs, such as incandescent and its types, halogens, and the fluorescents.
Now point of discussion is which type of bulb is supposed to be used?
Well the answer or trick or tip is that you match the type of the light source with that of your décor. The lighting, bulbs and different decorative lamp shades, chandeliers etc. have to be fully integrated with the full design, and décor of the room, home or office.
For a room which has warm materials like the wood or the terracotta material décor used then for such room you can enhance it with the bulbs of incandescent of yellow or the orange hues which will work beautifully well.
If you have more of cooler tones in the room like the grey and blue it will be better to choose the whiter halogens which are much better choice which will render room in truer color as compared to incandescent or the fluorescents.
For energy efficiency you can though choose to have fluorescents. Do these types of bulbs in areas in which you tend to leave lights on? This is because they don’t generate much heat thus you will have cooler home. The suggestion is that you use it in the hallways, in kitchens, and in laundry rooms.
Also when you are thinking about lighting you need to know the wiring of your home. If you are building new house great, or getting renovation it can be done but rewiring is messy and also expensive.
