Posted May 07, 2019 06:16:58 The power of blue and white is a familiar one in the home.
The key to a home’s design is choosing the right light to complement the décor.
The colour palette is the key to good colour balance, and if you’re a blue-chip company, you might be hoping to find a supplier who can make it happen.
But there’s more to it than that, says Andrew Gower, who heads the lighting business at Philips.
“The biggest challenge is that we don’t have the right equipment to make blue and red lights,” he says.
“We need to make reds and blues, but we don, at the moment.”
Here’s how blue- and white-based lighting systems can be created.
Blue and white lights A blue-and-white light system is one that uses blue light to project a white light source.
The main difference between this and other types of lighting is that blue light does not require a reflective surface.
Instead, it emits a beam of light that reflects off the wall and creates a white, even-lit room.
In a typical home, this light will be either a single blue light bulb or a combination of a couple of them.
A typical blue-light system, for example, will have a single light bulb in each corner.
But the technology isn’t limited to that: there are a variety of other types too.
“There are LED (light emitting diode) lights that emit a single, low-frequency beam of blue light that’s reflected off the walls,” Gower says.
They can be built into walls, doors, windows and other surfaces and are typically the most common type of lighting.
“It’s a fairly simple, one-step process,” says Gower.
“A lamp that has a single lamp in each of the corners, that’s blue, it creates a nice, even lighting.”
The key is finding a supplier with a wide range of lighting technology.
Blue LEDs are the most popular type of LED light source, but there are also more expensive alternatives.
“Blue LEDs are a very bright light,” says Stephen O’Shea, who specialises in lighting for home owners.
“They’re really cheap to produce, but they can’t produce the same intensity of light as LEDs.”
So what are the benefits of a blue LED system?
“The key benefit is you can control the colour of the light,” O’shea says.
It also has the added benefit of being energy efficient.
“You can run a light for longer periods of time and save money by using LEDs,” he adds.
“In the case of a light, if you have a couple on one wall, it’s good if you want to use the same amount of energy to make the same brightness in both of them.”
So, what is a typical blue LED?
It’s a single bulb, typically with a single white light beam.
“Basically it’s a white LED that you put in the middle of the wall,” O ‘Shea says, “and you put one white light on top of it, so the white light is shining through the wall.”
If you’re building a small house, the amount of light being produced is usually limited by the amount available.
“As a rule of thumb, if the number of lights is smaller than the number that are needed, it doesn’t make sense to use blue lights,” says O’ Shea.
“If you’re getting 50 lights, for instance, you’re going to want to have 50 lights to cover the wall space.
So you want the lights to be bright enough to be reflected off a wall.”
A blue light is generally considered a low-emission, low emissions light source in the lighting industry.
So why should you buy a blue light?
A blue LED light can be used to add colour to the space it’s installed in.
For example, a home with a blue colour might be designed to look more inviting or more sophisticated.
“Depending on what you want, you can get a blue or white light in different levels of brightness,” O, Shea says “You could go for a low intensity, for a really good room, and then you can go for higher intensity.
Or you could go with a low light intensity, and it would be a really pleasing light to look at.”
And for the person that needs to work with the lighting in the room, the ability to make a choice about the colours that are appropriate for the space is key.
“When you’re using blue light, the colour changes depending on what’s in the light source,” says Tom Dolan, the owner of Lighthouse, an Auckland-based home decor company.
“So it’s always important to have a blue option.
The colours you get out of blue-based lights are really beautiful.”
And if you need more of a splash of colour, a colour that’s not too dark can be
