Ceiling lights are primarily room lighters, offering a bright enough capacity to comfortably light a whole room. They usually sit flat on the ceiling like oyster lights and often contemporary designs will be sedate and discrete styles which blend in with the tone and texture of your ceiling. You can usually get them with an off-white glass or acrylic cover. More contemporary styles will offer you brushed aluminium sides to give you a sleeker and more stylised finish without crowding the space with unnecessary details.
Ceiling lights are particularly popular throughout homes in Australia as they offer an all-round lighting style that is bright enough to use the room they’re lighting practically and at relatively low running cost. Generally, ceiling lights are placed in the centre of the room to maximise their function. However, that’s not a given. Ceiling lights and particularly our range of vintage inspired designs can be placed wherever you want. The key is balance so if you’re looking for cove light ceiling styles or pendant lights , try mixing it up a little with led panel lighting. Chandeliers make a fantastic design statement in any room looking particularly good when hung in the dining room over your dining table. For ambient lighting in spaces like your living room, consider using a floor lamp in conjunction with your ceiling lights. For later in the evening, lamp light generates a softer glow that is easier to wind under rather than harsher ceiling lights.
Our complete range of styles and designs include a variety of finishes. You can choose from our more Art Deco style lighting including our range of antique brass lights, lantern designs as well as a range of contemporary or mid-century inspired designs and materials like nickel, chrome and polished brass, as well as modern matte black. For anybody seeking to renovate or restore their existing ceiling lights, we can help you find the matching batten fix light, room lights, and kitchen lighting to achieve a seamless design transition from your original features and the renovated spaces.
For anyone seeking to retain their original features but install commercial lighting, panel lights or ceiling lights that are more energy conscious and environmentally friendly, we offer a range of contemporary designs inspired by original and antique features which support energy saver globes and other energy conscious features like dimmers. Using dimmable globes helps to generate maximum efficiency from your ceiling lights. You can create mood lighting such as low emergency lighting using your dimmer without the need for additional ceiling lights or other ambient lighting sources. Long life LEDs are expected to last between 25,000 and 30,000 hours of light which, in the average household, roughly equates to about 10 years of use. That’s quite a long life from a single globe and will help reduce the need for globe replacements that can be both expensive and time-consuming.
How much electricity does a ceiling light use?
When it comes to measuring electricity, the standard unit for measurement is a watt. When we’re talking about ceiling lights, there are three basic types: ambient light (roughly 40 watts and close to lamplight), task lighting (roughly 100 watts and bright enough to work comfortably under) and the average lighting range (roughly 60 to 75 watts, often in bedrooms or living areas).
If you’re running a 100-watt globe for ten hours, then you will have used 1,000 watts to power that light globe. You can check with your electricity provider about what you are charged with 1,000 watts to more accurately find out exactly how much electricity your ceiling lights are actually using. Opting for lower wattage bulbs can also help you save on energy costs as well as energy saving globes that specifically designed to maximise the lifespan of the globe reducing replacement costs and time.
