Achieving Perfect Lighting For Your Conservatory
Having an optimum lighting solution in your conservatory can make the world of difference to the way this unique space feels. Here at Asco Lights we offer design and supply services to help you achieve the perfect lighting for your conservatory.
The conservatory is an important area to consider when it comes to lighting. Due to the glass and natural lighting available, it can be a little difficult to light but Asco Lights offers a wide range of solutions to ensure that the conservatory is lit as effectively and efficiently as possible, using a variety of products of all shapes and sizes to suit your look and style.
The conservatory can be used as a living room or a dining room and can be a key area in a home. With this in mind, the lighting in this area has to be done correctly to avoid it being too bright during the day and avoid reflections during the night. A way to prevent this is to consider subtly lighting the garden. Doing this will spread the light consistently throughout the whole garden and even it out. Small up-lighters on trees and bushes will go a long way to adding value to the area when the sun goes down. Our article on Garden lighting goes into great detail on effective ways to light up the garden in a style that suits you and can considerably enhance the feel of the light in a conservatory.
If the conservatory will be used as a dining room with a dining table, then pendants can be a great way to light up the entire table, whilst also adding to the value and look of the area. They can range from small and narrow to long and wide, or in-between. With pendants, it’s a good idea to have them on a dimmer to allow them to be dimmed when it comes to night time. If they are on a standard switch, then it means that reflections and unwanted glare can be prominent when the sun sets. Floor lamps can also be used in co-ordination with pendants by matching them. This can create consistency within the space and can be pleasing to look at as it brings the eye into the area. Like the pendants, these can also be dimmed so you have full control over the lights.
If the room is too small or pendants aren’t your style, then LED tape may be the way to go. LED tape can be adjusted to fit any length, and can be used to shine light either upwards or downwards to create a special effect within the space. LED tape also has the option to be dimmed so it can never be too bright. Colour tuneable white and RGBW is an advantage to LED tape. This allows for complete control over the colour of the tape based on the time of day or mood. This can be controlled by a remote, or a panel on the wall, whichever suits you best.
Smaller lights such as up-lighters, pinspots or low levels can be a great way to subtly light the area without introducing too many lumens, and still keeping the same quality. They can be easily concealed so they can’t be seen, for example they can fit easily into gaps or in between furniture. Creating less lumens means the reflections won’t be as prominent within the area and this can create a much more relaxed environment for all times of they day. Choosing smaller lights such as pinspots and low levels gives you the flexibility to choose the beam angle. Depending on the size of the conservatory, a wider or narrower beam angle can have a huge impact.
Asco Lights offers the best products and solutions for conservatory lighting, with multiple options on ways to light the area, ranging from subtle pinspots and up-lighters to more bright and dimmable pendants. The garden can play a huge part in the conservatory lighting and means that undesirable reflections in the window will be eliminated. Asco lights offers a lighting design service to help you choose the best option that suits you.
