Everything you need to know about finding a Lighting Expert

Lighting is a part of every home and, as well as being functional, it can go a long way towards creating a style and ambience within the home.  Lighting suppliers are able to provide you with all of the components that you need in order to light your home, as well as provide advice to ensure that you have got the very best lighting system.

Services

Lighting suppliers can provide you with almost any kind of light that you can think of.  These include:

  • downlights
  • spotlights
  • pendants
  • wall or ceiling lights
  • lamps
  • shades
  • garden lights
  • chandeliers
  • solar lights

They can also provide you with the correct bulbs to fit the lights, as well as any accessories needed.  However, suppliers can provide you with more than just lights.  They can also supply:

  • ceiling fans in a variety of designs and styles, with or without lights
  • portable fans
  • exhaust fans for wet areas of the home, and fan and light combinations

Lighting suppliers are also able to give you advice on how to light your home and what to use, which can be very useful if you are planning on creating an entirely new lighting configuration, or wish to change the existing lights for some reason, such as energy efficiency.  Many professionals will come to your home and evaluate your requirements free of charge. 

Any products that you buy should comply with the Australian standards and come with a guarantee.  Lighting should always be installed by an electrician, unless it is specifically a DIY kit.

Light Supply Places

There are several different places that you are able to purchase your lighting products from.  These include:

  • Generalist Suppliers – generalist suppliers are places that stock all different styles and brands of lights, accessories, and so forth.  Most of the popular types of lights are stocked in these stores and, often, they will have access to certain specialist products.
  • General Stores – these encompass stores that may stock any type of lighting, and include department stores and hardware stores.  These places are good if you are only looking for a very popular type of light; however, the range is usually less than you would find in a generalist or specialist supplier.
  • Specialist Supplier – these stores may specialize in a particular type of lighting such as garden lighting, or a particular style or brand.  These stores are great for finding true feature pieces for the home or garden.

How Much Does Lighting Cost?

There is lighting to suit every budget, from affordable massed produced items to custom lighting that can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Quality will generally improve with price, and safety should be a prime concern at all price points. Dedicated lighting supply outlets are great destinations to get a feel for how an item looks, and are best visited after you have done your initial research online. Specialist and custom lighting options can be tailored to your specific needs in terms of styling and design - an attractive option if you want to add a distinctive touch to your interiors or outdoor areas. Don't forget that you need a licensed electrician to install lighting, who can charge anywhere from $45 to $60 per hour depending on where you live.
