Choosing Proper Lights for Home Reno Project
I am doing a home reno project that is including renovating two bathrooms and the kitchen. Could you help me figure out which of your products is right for me and let me know product availability? Full-spectrum, flicker-free, low EMF are my desired features for lighting.
Ceiling fixtures: I will have two of these installed (one already is): Sputnik chandelier
For the Sputnik chandelier, we would recommend the dimmable 3000K Ultra High 95 CRI A19 5W LED Filament Bulb for Home & Residential. The 3000K color temperature is the most common option for kitchens and dining areas.
Under-cabinet task lighting (four zones): I'm looking for a permanent power supply installation of strip lighting instead of each zone lighting having to take up a wall plug.
For the under-cabinet kitchen zones, I would recommend the 3000K CENTRIC HOME™ LED Strip Lights for Home & Residential with the Aluminum Channel for LED Flex Strip and TRIAC dimmable power supply.
Please note that these 12V LED strip light products have a maximum combined length of 16.4 feet, meaning that connected lengths greater than that will experience diminished output.
As such, if the under-cabinet zones are to utilize greater than 16.4 feet of product, we would recommend utilizing a second dedicated reel of LED strip lights paired with a dedicated dimmable power supply.
If you would like to provide us with a rough layout of the under-cabinet installation areas, I would be more than happy to provide a recommended parts list and order quantity.
High hats: My licensed electrician is supplying these. He said he can choose styles that take bulbs instead of LED light covers, but he knows nothing about flicker-free, full-spectrum lighting.
For dimmable lightbulbs that would be compatible with a partially or fully enclosed high-hat fixture, we would recommend the 3000K Ultra High 95 CRI A19 5W LED Filament Bulb.
Bathrooms: I've gotten this wall fixture for both bathrooms: Maxim Lighting Essentials 4-Light polished chrome bath vanity light.
Based on our review of the fixture, I would recommend the Ultra High 95 CRI A19 5W LED Filament Bulb for Home & Residential, as it is suitable for enclosed fixtures as well as use in damp locations such as bathrooms. We usually recommend 2700K or 3000K for those areas.
Garage: I currently have a ceiling fixture that uses florescent bulbs. 48". I don't spend a lot of time out there and am not sure I want to spend extra for specialty bulbs.
For the garage fluorescent fixture, we would recommend our 5000K NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 LED Tube for Art & Studio. Before purchase, we recommend checking to ensure that if a ballast is utilized within the fixtures, it is compatible with our LED tube lights. If not, these lights can also be installed using a ballast-bypass method.
As a final note, please feel free to take advantage of our 30-day return policy if items within your purchase aren’t quite the right fit. For the LED strip lights, we are happy to accept them as returns so long as they have not been cut or altered.
