Basic lightings that you should get for your new BTO or Condo

By Lights&Co. Team

More often than not, we are spoilt for choice with the hundreds of lighting designs and we simply can't make up our minds. You might have already decided you want to sell your house after you fulfilled the Sellers' Stamp Duty period or the Minimum Occupation Period and that basic lights will suffice.

Firstly you won't go wrong with black or white colours as they are the template colours. If you like some wood accents, you can either use the same throughout your house or complement it with white colour lightings. We compiled 4 basic lighting ideas that you can use for your home if you decide to go for simple and functional.

 

1. The most economical option

Use 18w or 24w LED surface panels. It is compact in size yet produces sufficient illumination for your living space.

2. Standardise by using LED ceiling lights

Achieve a uniform look throughout your home with our range of LED ceiling lights. You can choose to use a single colour (ie: white) for all the ceiling lights or alternate between white and black colours. The ceiling lights come in a minimum of 24w and is similarly sufficient to illuminate your living space.

3. Use LED track lights for flexibility

A 1m track rail can fit 3 to 4 track lights and a 1.5m can fit 5 to 6 track lights. You have the flexibility to add or remove track lights to achieve the desired brightness.

4. Use downlights, T5 or LED strips

If you intend to use recessed or cove lights, these lights will be the ones you require. From the simple circular or square downlight with an external driver to downlights with internal drivers, cob downlights and box housing downlights, you have a wide range to select from. For the home, choose a downlight that is easy to replace and available. T5 and LED strips are commonly used for cove lighting but we would recommend using T5 due to the ease of replacement. LED strips have exposed circuits and are required to be double sided taped to hold it down. When it comes to replacing LED strips, it could require some effort and create unwanted mess.

Troubleshooting Your Lights

By Lights&Co. Team
on May 26, 2017

Electrician

What are the plausible reasons when the LED light or pendant light you bought doesn't work the way it is suppose to? 

This month itself we had 2 unique scenarios where customers emailed us to say 1) LED light was flickering when installed and 2) pendant light wasn't working as confirmed by the electrician. That got our attention as we have not come across such issues thus far. In fact, these 2 issues could have been easily resolved had the electricians performed an extra layer of checks. 

For the first case, we had advised the customer a probable reason for the LED flickering could be the wrong connection of the live and neutral wires. Hence after the electrician corrected it, he told us the light still flickered after staying turned on for 10 minutes. We went down on site the same afternoon to test the light and found that the LED was working normally. The friendly uncle painter also told us the light was turned on since morning and except for the short flicker in the morning, it was working normally thereafter. 

For the second case, the customer had purchased 4 lights from us and informed us 1 of them was not working as confirmed by her electrician. When on site, we removed the said pendant light, tested it at another power outlet and the bulb lit up. So how did the electrician confirm the pendant light wasn't working? He had assumed the existing electrical point is working fine and so the issue has to be 100% on the pendant light. Well that wasted the time of all 3 parties if he had tested the pendant light at another power outlet or tested the electrical point to determine which is the culprit. 

Note that electrical wiring typically wears out in about 20 to 30 years and it is recommended to check or change the entire wiring in your home to ensure your electrical hardware is in good order.
