Wall Lights & Ceiling Lights – How To Choose Your Style?

Choosing the right indoor wall lights and ceiling lights is about so much more than just the illumination they produce. Yes functionality is important, but so is style. Whether you want a minimalistic space or opulent surroundings, the right design of light fitting will help set the scene.

Consider the size of your room as well as the height of your ceiling when making your selection. Look at your furnishings and colour scheme and then choose the style that complements the décor.

Choose Your Look

 

Contemporary

Bold styling and simple lines define the contemporary look. Take the Edit Mathis Plaster Up & Down Wall Light this white plaster uplighter will sit beautifully on the wall of a modern room and can be painted if you want to add different tones to your setting.

A great way to highlight your kitchen surfaces is with spotlight or tack lights. The Expand range by Markslojd is unique in the sense it is completely customisable. Each track can connect together to create your very own track lighting design to fit your home. The lights come in a variety of styles and lengths too.

A brightly coloured fitting can make an impact and definitely makes a bold statement. Take a look at this striking red ceiling pendant, the Dar Soho. It can be hung individually or in multiples over a kitchen island for maximum effect.

 

Traditional

Lucide Campagne Twin Wall Light

If you have a larger room with a high ceiling then why not consider a chandelier. The Lucide Campagne 6 Arm Chandelier will add a touch of sophistication to your room with its traditional antique brass finish.

 

Glamour

Wall lights and ceiling lights are the perfect accessory for your indoor space when trying to achieve a sense of glamour. Cascading pendant lights above a sweeping staircase can create a dramatic result. Look for light reflecting properties as seen in the Dar Livia 12 Light Cascade Ceiling Pendant. Team a fitting with a faceted crystal shade and droplets such as the Dar Crystal Wall Light with a velvet chaise longue for a touch of vintage glamour.

 

Vintage

If you want to create a bit of nostalgia then why not go for some vintage light fittings. Taking design inspiration from a bygone era, the Ardeche Large Pendant – Clear in fluted glass will certainly make a beautiful feature.

The Searchlight Kensington Twin Wall Light exudes vintage glamour and can add some ambient lighting to your room. Choose a dimmable bulb for your light fittings if you want to create a relaxed mood after dark.

Choose indoor wall and ceiling lights that are in keeping with your home, be it a modern townhouse or a rural farmhouse, and that are proportionate to your rooms. Consider how much natural light your rooms get too as this may have a bearing on your choice. Why not check out our full range of wall lights and ceiling lights for yourself.

IP Ratings Explained

When shopping for outdoor or bathroom lighting, you will most probably have been confronted by a mysterious IP code that is followed by two numbers.  This code was designed to provide us non-experts with an easy to understand description of how well-protected a light fitting is.

For those of you who don’t have an encyclopaedic knowledge of International, European, and British Standard codes here is a helpful guide to what they mean and examples of how a product and a situation match up with an IP code.

IP Broken Down

What does the code actually mean?  Well, each part of the code is designed to give you information and help you decide if the fitting you are looking at is suitable for where you want to put it.

Firstly – IP

The IP in the code is short for Ingress Protection – as in how well protected a fitting is.

Digit 1 – Solids

The first digit tells you how well protected a fitting is against solids – such as dust, and other objects. The higher the number the more protected it is. On occasion you may find the digit represented by an X. This means the value has not been determined, usually because the product hasn’t been tested for protection against solid objects. For full details check out Table 1 below.

Digit 2  – Liquid

The second digit is used to tell you about the level of liquid protection: 0 being not protected and, the highest value of 8 being safe to submerge in more than 1 meter of water. For a full rundown check out Table 2 below.

IP Rating First Digit

Digit 1

Number Size of object Protects against

0

No protection against contact or entrance by any object

1

>50 mm Protection against any large surface area of the body but not deliberate tampering or force

2

>12.5 mm Fingers or similar sized tools and objects

3

>2.5 mm Thick wires, tools and similar-sized foreign bodies

4

>1 mm Most wires, screws, etc.

5

Dust protected Protected against dust – it has to enter in large amounts to interfere with operation. Complete protection against contact

6

Dust tight Impossible for dust to enter; complete protection against any foreign body

X

Undetermined Indicates that protection against solid objects is not defined

 

IP Rating Second Digit

Digit 2

Number Protects against Tested for

0

Not protected

1

Dripping water Dripping water – no damaging effect when tested against vertical falling water drops

2

Dripping water when tilted up to 15° Vertically dripping water has no damaging effect when the light enclosure is tilted at an angle up to 15° from its usual position.

3

Spraying water Water falling as a spray at any angle up to 60° has no damaging effect

4

Splashing water Water splashing against light enclosure from any direction has no damaging effect

5

Water jets Water projected by a nozzle (6.3mm) against light enclosure from any direction shall have no damaging effect

6

Powerful water jets Water projected in powerful jets (12.5mm nozzle) against the light enclosure from any direction has no damaging effect

7

Immersion up to 1 m Water won’t infiltrate even when light enclosure is immersed in water up to 1m in depth

8

Immersion beyond 1 m The equipment is suitable for continuous immersion in water under conditions specified by the manufacturer. Normally, this will mean that the equipment is hermetically sealed but in some cases, certain types of light enclosures can let some water in, but in a way that won’t be detrimental to the function of the light.

 

Security, Whatever The Weather…

Anybody looking for a security light wants them to be durable and protected against the extremities, whether they are to be situated indoors or outdoors. Mostly designed for outdoor use, some have a higher IP rating than others, which can range from an IP of 44 to 68. The Dan Outdoor Wall Light with PIR Sensor, for instance, is suitable for use in outdoor buildings such as your garage, shed or porch, with an IP Rating of 44. This means it’s safeguarded against foreign bodies 1mm+ thick and against splashing water. If you want your security light placed in a completely unsheltered area, then the 50W Cool White LED Floodlight with PIR Sensor, which is IP65, is just one of the models you could choose. The 6 rating means it is completely dust tight, while the 5 means it’s protected against pressurized water jets from any direction.

Decking Den…

If you are re-designing your garden and building a sheltered decking or patio area for you and your family to relax in, then you need lights that are protected but not at the highest end of the scale. The Paber Palazzo Coach Lantern has an IP Rating of 43, so is protected against small foreign bodies such as stray screws and wires from entering, as well as spraying water. It is hardy and durable and will light up your decking den like a dream.

Follow The Yellow Lit Path…

Our range of outdoor lighting at Lighting Direct varies in IP Rating, so it all depends on what you want it for as to what model you should pick. If you simply want something that makes a statement in terms of style and is rainproof, the Searchlight Stoma Outdoor Lantern Wall Light will definitely do that.

Ultimate Pressure

If you want lights that can withstand ultimate pressure then it’s best to go for models such as the Arigo LED Garden Spotlight or the Robus Garland Walkover Lights. Both have an IP Rating of 68, the highest on the scale, meaning they are completely dust tight and can withstand continuous immersion in water in excess of 1 metre. This makes them ideal for lighting up your garden path or pond or water feature. It is always best however, to check manufacturer’s instructions to ensure your chosen lights are suitable, i.e. placing in a swimming pool.

If you’re still unsure of what IP Rating to go for, you can always get in contact with our experienced sales team who will be able to assist with any queries you have.

Lighting Advice for New Homeowners

Moving house is an extremely exciting time; no matter if it’s your first home or your tenth, nothing quite beats the feeling of getting the keys to your new home. One of the best things about moving house is that you get to put your own stamp on it – and lighting plays a big part in this.

Room by Room

Each room of your new home will have a unique set of lighting requirements, based on the primary function of that space. For example, kitchens will typically require bright task lighting to illuminate work surfaces, whilst bedrooms, where relaxation is key, will require more ambient solutions, such as side lamps and dimmable pendants.

Layer Your Lighting

Overhead lighting is an essential component of any lighting setup, but used alone it is not always enough. Installing a variety of lamps gives you full control over the lighting throughout your home, allowing you to set the perfect mood in each room. The inclusion of table lamps and floor lights means you can turn off your bright overhead lights, creating a far more relaxed atmosphere – perfect for winding down before bed or watching a movie.

Watch Out For Shadows

When installing a new light, often the first consideration is how bright it will be. Very few people give the same attention to the shadows that it will create, which is almost as important. Shadows can cause a serious issue in your kitchen, office, or any room in which you will be working regularly. In these rooms, consider task lighting to counteract shadows that will be cast from bright overhead lights. Additionally, when planning the lighting in your bathroom, it’s best to implement lighting either side of your mirror, as opposed to above the mirror, as this will help to reduce the shadows falling across your face – beneficial for makeup application, for example. View our range of mirror lights here.

Think LED

We were early advocates of converting your old lighting to LEDs, and moving house is the perfect time to make the switch. LEDs offer numerous benefits in comparison to traditional lighting solutions, such as halogen and incandescent bulbs, including increased energy efficiency, longer lifespan. LEDs have become the go-to industry standard for lighting and, with the halogen ban that came into place in 2018, they are now much more widely available and much cheaper to install than they were a few years ago. If you haven’t switched yet, we recommend you do this now.

Don’t Rush It

Moving into a new house is an exciting time and it’s completely understandable that you want it to be finished as soon as possible. However, making rushed decisions at the interior design stage, especially when planning lighting, could mean compromising on the finished result. Once you have spent some time in your new home you will start to get a feel for the best ways to light each room, based on how you use the spaces on a daily basis. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to lighting, it’s all about what works for you.

Light up the outside of your home with Smart Lighting

Last year we undertook some research amongst our customers that revealed over a quarter (28%) of homeowners use smart lighting within their homes, with the living room, bedroom, and hallway the most popular options for smart lighting technology. What’s more, of those who don’t currently have smart lighting in their home, half are considering investing in it in the future.

One might expect that smart lighting, and smart technology in general for that matter, is for indoor use only, but a growing number of people are taking connected tech into their gardens. In fact, our research revealed that 63% of respondents are interested in using smart lighting outdoors – and with an increasing number of smart lighting manufacturers producing bulbs exclusively for this purpose, this is already becoming a reality.

Smart lighting for gardens and exteriors

There a many reasons to consider outdoor smart lighting, including:

  • Smart security lighting – The biggest driver of outdoor smart lighting adoption is home security, and when you consider the advanced functionality that smart bulbs offer, it’s easy to see why. Smart lighting allows you to control lighting from any location via a dedicated mobile app, so whether you’re on holiday, working late, or simply upstairs in bed, you can turn the lights on or off in any room with a few swipes of your finger. Additionally, lights can be scheduled to switch on and off at set times, creating the illusion that a property is occupied.
  • Bring your garden to life – Smart lighting can completely transform the look and feel of an outdoor space: Colours and effects can be chosen to complement seasonal garden tones, or used to create the perfect vibe for any occasion. Using special RGB LEDs, smart lights give users a wide choice of vibrant colours, special effects and presets – all controlled wirelessly via a remote control or smartphone app.
  • Automation makes life easier – Smart lighting can be scheduled to fit around your lifestyle, making it easy to create the look you want, without having to constantly tinker with the lights outside. If you want the lights to stay on a little later at the weekends, for example, you can set it up easily via the app.

With longer nights just around the corner, there’s no time like the present to get your garden lighting organised.

New research shows smart lighting is taking over our homes… and gardens

Smart home technology is changing the way in which we use light in our homes. Increased adoption of smart speakers, such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home, or Apple HomePod, is helping to shift our behaviour by giving us complete control over our lighting – all through the power of our voice. What’s more, the ability to control lighting via a mobile app is also an attractive proposition for many homeowners – particularly when you consider the level of customisation that most modern smart bulbs allow for at the touch of a button (or swipe of a thumb!).

We recently asked our customers how they feel about smart lighting, and the results confirm that not only is smart lighting taking over our homes, it could soon be taking over our gardens too!

In fact, the research revealed that over a quarter (28%) of respondents are already using smart lighting as part of their daily lives. And for those who don’t yet have smart lighting in their homes, half are considering installing it in the near future. Why? The main reasons are increasing home security (41%), reducing carbon footprint (21%), and keeping in touch with the latest tech trends (17%).

Smart lighting can be scheduled to turn on and off at set times

Endless possibilities

As well as offering homeowners many practical benefits, such as turning on lighting remotely before you arrive at home, or turning off lights after you leave, smart lighting can also be used in a number of fun ways, including programming your lighting to:

  • flash in your sport’s team’s colour when they score
  • change colour, based on the weather
  • be just the right colour temperature and warmth to help your child fall asleep
  • mimic the sun rising in order to wake you up in the morning
  • flash when you receive a text message or email.

Philips Hue lets you play with 16 million colours!

We predict a ‘smart summer’

Whilst the living room (65%), bedroom (38%), and hallway (30%) are the most popular rooms for smart lighting inside the home, the research also revealed that 63% of respondents are interested in outdoor smart lighting.

As homeowners contemplate longer, warmer evenings sat outdoors in their gardens, the idea of being able to change the colour of outdoor lights for a party, or illuminating flower beds with different colours, is clearly an appealing one.

Smart tips for smart lighting

Smart lights are only ‘smart’ when they are connected to the internet, so before investing in new smart bulbs it is important to ensure that you have the right foundation on which to build a connected lighting ecosystem. From a technical point of view, users should consider the following key points:

  • check the WiFi coverage in areas where the lights will be used
  • check the brand of lightbulbs being purchased will integrate with existing smart devices such as smart speakers
  • check any associated apps are compatible with your smartphone or tablet device.

Providing these boxes can be ticked, then there’s nothing to stop you from enjoying smart lighting in your home. To find out more and to view our wide range of smart lighting products, including products from leading suppliers such as Philips Hue, WiZ, and iDual, visit our smart home page.

Get your garden ready for National Gardening Week

This year’s biggest gardening celebration – National Gardening Week – falls between 30 April and 6 May. Backed by the The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), this seven day initiative aims to encourage everyone to get outside and enjoy their gardens.

Whatever your plans for celebrating National Gardening Week, now is a perfect time to think about refreshing your current garden lighting scheme to help you make the most of your outdoor spaces at this time of year. Here are some garden lighting ideas to get you inspired.

Spotlights

If you’ve put a lot of time and effort into getting your garden looking wonderful, it deserves to be the centre of attention, even after dark. Garden spotlights are a great way of drawing attention to key garden features such as as trees, plants, flower beds, statues, or just about anything else that you want to show off after the sun goes down. Spotlights are very versatile, allowing for directional control over the focus of the beam, meaning they can be adjusted easily to create different effects throughout your garden.

Spotlights

Path and walkway lighting

Having poorly lit pathways or steps in your garden can be a health and safety hazard, so it’s a good idea to install lighting in these areas to help guide you and your guests around after dark. One way to do this is with brick and tile lights, which discreetly slot into place for fuss free illumination. Alternatively you may wish to line paths with post and bollard lighting – as as well as being practical, these lights come in an array shapes, sizes, and finishes, making them a great option for adding some style and character to an outdoor space.

Al fresco dining

Create the perfect Al Fresco dining area with LED candles, festoon lights, and twinkling fairy lights. These magical yet practical lights will create a perfect backdrop for long and lazy evenings spent socialising with friends and family in your garden.

Fairy Lights

Party lighting

Garden lighting may be practical, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun too! From funky feature lights, such as colour changing plant pots, to bold festoons, lighting can be a great way of adding some ‘wow’ factor to an outdoor space.

Party Lights

Solar lighting

Solar lighting is changing the way we illuminate our gardens. By harnessing the sun’s natural energy, solar lights are the most environmentally friendly and cost effective lighting solution available today. Solar lights come in a wide range of styles and fittings, including wall lights, bollard lights, and fairy lights to name just a few. Another major advantage of solar lights over their mains-powered alternatives is that they can be installed anywhere, without the need of an electrician. If you are looking to make an instant impact in your garden with minimal effort, solar lights are a great option.
