Lighting is both decorative and functional. Good lights can be an expensive item of furnishing, but an encouraging aspect of modern lights is the way in which shapes have been getting elegantly simpler. These less formally made lights also have a cheaper price tag attached to them. Most people just want their attractive lights to come on each time they flip the switch and they want the lighting to be sufficient so that they can perform all their tasks with ease and in safety.
The Right Lights for Rainy Days
In Singapore, with its tropical rain-forest climate, and with no true distinct seasons, it is warm and humid throughout the year. Singapore has a good share of beautiful sunny days, but even during the drier months in Singapore, they experience a fair amount of rain. With about 150mm of rain each month, the unpredictable wet weather throughout the year means you want to have good lighting for when the sun isn’t shining and the days are grey.
Energy Saving Lights
Just like in other parts of the world, LED lighting is being used in offices and homes in Singapore, and this bright, energy saving lighting is guaranteed to make performing any task easy and pleasurable. Lighting experts and interior design specialists in Singapore also work hard at integrating ‘green’ solutions into their products.
What about energy-saving bulbs that can be put into groups of 4 or 5 according to the light required in a room? These bulbs are attached to thin, invisible looking wires, and give the appearance of floating in a room. These days with a wireless lighting environment you can control and dim the light in any room from your smart phone.
Different Bulbs create Different Light Levels
In Singapore, the overall design for homes is light, airy, modern, stylish, fun and colourful, and these days there are so many cool and innovative ideas for lights, whether you living in an apartment or a mansion.

Each room in the home has its own style and décor but they share one thing in common, and that is the fun features such as the lighting.
