Bad Ideas - Lighting
Things to Avoid Doing!
500w Halogen Lights
Unless you have a football field to light up.
A gross waste of energy and money. Just one can waste thousands of pounds on electricity in its lifetime.
Bare Fluorescent Lights with random tube
See Fluorescent Lighting for how to do it properly.
Lights high up out of reach over stairs
A perfect recipe for serious injury.
- A recipe for house fires.
- Often excessively power hungry.
Plaster half-bowl uplighters
The only uplighter that manages to have none of the usual advantages of uplighting, and makes walls look terrible to boot.
