All Those Everyday Tasks Need Their Proper Lighting!

What do we mean by everyday lighting?  Everyday lighting is lighting designed to provide adequate illumination for common visual tasks in the home.  Typically, such visual activities are performed in small areas, thus task illumination is concentrated rather than dispersed around the room.  Reading, watching television, cooking and washing dishes, grooming and personal hygiene, dressing, completing work or homework, and doing jigsaw puzzles are some examples of everyday tasks.

Because many visual activities might be tough to see - especially if you have aging eyes.  A well-lit work area minimizes eye strain and tiredness.  Many lighting systems and products are particularly intended to illuminate job areas so that details may be seen clearly with little glare.  Table and floor lamps, as well as directed sconces, provide great task lights that are simple to optimize for tackling chores by placing a higher light output bulb in the fixture, altering the shade, or repositioning an existing fixture to enable lighter to fall on the desired area.

Consider both usefulness and aesthetics.  Today's task light fixtures may provide both, and a lighting specialist here at Lakepointe can guarantee that you have the exact characteristics you need for the job work you wish to accomplish.  Consider the following features when shopping for a task lighting fixture:

Light source – LED task lighting is very efficient and long-lasting.  LEDs also produce less heat than traditional incandescent light bulbs.

Amount of light – Depending on the work, varying quantities of light may be required for optimal vision.

Adjustability – Enables the light to be directed where it is needed, as well as the size of the illuminated area to be changed to cover the whole job area.

Light color – LEDs come in a variety of tints and colors that are typically classified as “warm” (reds and yellows) or “cool” (blues and greens).  The color of light is measured in kelvins (K), which is also known as chromaticity.  The chromaticity value of LED light bulbs and fixtures is printed on the bulb or box.

Dimmability – In dimming LEDs with electrical work, you have two options.  The first option is a dimmer, which simply controls the brightness of the LED.  The second is a control that allows you to alter the color and brightness of the LED.  This form of dimming is called "warm dim," and it is designed to mimic the fading characteristics of incandescent lamps.
