Light measurement is usually conveyed in units of lumen, lux, and footcandles. Different light bulb types will produce different amounts of illuminance as defined by these units. Furthermore, total illuminance is not additive in nature; increasing the amount of light bulbs does not proportionally increase illumination. This is because illuminance is not only a function of light intensity, but also of the distance of a light source to its target.
If you run a business and you need to light large premises, then using fluorescent lighting is an excellent solution. They may be three times more expensive than other bulbs, but the long term savings really do add up. There are a whole host of designs and styles available on the market today too, so long gone are the days of slightly buzzing strip lights. It is even possible to get dimmer switches too. This type of lighting is particularly good in places such as board rooms or meeting rooms where sometimes the lights need to be dimmed during a presentation or something similar. There is no doubt that fluorescent lights are cost efficient and energy efficient and business owners should take advantage of this.
Low ceilings present a unique challenge in terms of illumination and lighting installation. Typically, ceilings that are 8 feet/2.4 meters in height, or fewer, are defined as low ceilings. Such ceilings are not ideal for hanging fixtures such as chandeliers or pendant lights because the room's occupants are likely to bump into them. Flood lights, although they are located within the ceiling and thus are not as obtrusive, nevertheless also pose a problem because they create glare. As a consequence, when attempting to illuminate a room that contains a low ceiling, the selection of ceiling lights is limited.
One of the biggest trends in bathroom lighting today are decorative lights, such as pendant lights and chandeliers, over the bathtub. As we all know, safety becomes a concern when mixing water with electricity-especially over the bathtub. when choosing a light fixture for over the bathtub, it is imperative to comply with all electrical codes. The National Electric code clearly outlines the guidelines regarding bathtubs as follows:
