Wide Array Of Lighting Choices
This stunning luxury home by Giorgi incorporates a few different lighting choices compared to many of our other projects.
The main point to notice is that the colour temperature of all the luminaires is in a cool white 4000K light rather than the usual 3000K warm white that the majority of our customers choose. Unlike CRI, there isn’t a right or wrong when choosing your Colour Temperature, it is more about personal preference.
Located in Dalkeith, the residence features an extensive amount of our Fusion LED Strip lighting along with our Pro Round downlights. From the floating effect the LED Strip makes underneath the kitchen cupboards and foyer stairs, to the general ambience the downlights create in the living room; this project is a great example of just how versatile our lighting collection is.
We’re open 8am – 5pm Monday to Friday and 8am – 12:30pm on Saturdays.
Our lighting consultants are always available during these hours to help you with any solutions you may need.

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode; a semiconductor device that converts electricity into light. LEDs use approximately 85% less energy than halogen or incandescent lighting (hello power bill savings!) and also have a much longer lifespan, roughly 25,000 – 50,000 hours depending on the ‘globe’. LED’s are also eco-friendly, they don’t contain any harmful mercury, they don’t emit any CO2 and they can be recycled without harming the environment.
Kelvin (K) is a measurement of light colour and is not a measurement of brightness, 3000k is a warm white, whereas 4000k is a cool white. The higher the number of Kelvin, the cooler the light. Think of the ember warmth of candles or firelight (which is 1000k-2000k), compared to the blueish tint of daylight, which is around 5000k. The colour temperature will impact a number of factors, including the ambience of a space.
Our lighting consultants lean toward a 3000k as it is not too warm/yellow toned and will therefore provide a clean white finish that is also still soft. However this can differ as some people may prefer a cooler white to others. For example, homes that feature a monochromatic palette of whites and blacks will suit a 4000k better – to bring out the whites and not create a yellow wash.
Lumens are a measurement of the total amount of visible light from a light source, this is the term used in place of wattage on the old scale. Typically, closer to 100-lumen per watt is very efficient – a standard downlight at 10.5W should be closer to 900lumen – this means it is performing at a higher level with less power.
CRI stands for Colour Rendering Index, which measures the ability of a light to accurately reproduce the colour of various objects. The closer to 100, the higher the quality of the light source.
Our trading hours are Monday to Friday 8AM until 5PM and Saturdays 8.30AM until 12PM.
