Lighting is such an important feature within a home’s interior, whether it comes from the natural glow outside or it’s being created with some cleverly placed artificial interior illuminations.
Many homes struggle to achieve the right lighting combination – enough natural light during the day to flood their interiors with a pleasant brightness and an appropriate amount of lamps, spotlights and fanciful lighting features to create the correct atmosphere in each room at night.
The lighting industry has been growing all over the world at a very consistent rate, but in recent years it has been creating its own legacy with its functional, all-purpose, designing. Today, impeccable design is a must, and there should be no compromise in the quality and dependability of products with innovative designers winning awards for their incredible designs. From wall-mounted options to cordless lamps and fixtures and fittings to suit any type of home design, options are endless.
One of the options that is growing in popularity day by day and is fast becoming an essential item in any homeware store is the battery powered lamp. There are many reasons why battery lamps are so popular these days; the main reasons being the sleek, stylish and modern designs that are available; the lack of messy looking leads; the fact that they can be moved around freely; and the environmentally-friendliness of the lamp.
The aesthetic it provides in itself becomes a reason for it to be a purposeful add-on to a modern set-up. Even in a minimalistic room, a battery lamp takes enough space to make its presence felt without bothering any of the surroundings, and with the sheer number of designs available to buy it will be easy to find a range of styles to fit any interior aesthetic.
Apart from their versatility, battery lamps are much more practical owing to the absence of power cords cluttering up your space. You will no longer have to worry about finding an available plug socket or digging out an unsightly extension lead in order to place the lamp exactly where you want it, the lamps are cordless and therefore more stylish, while acting as a tidier decorative feature in your home. In addition to this, the fact that batteries are used to power the lamp rather than electricity means that it can be placed anywhere in the room and is a reliable resource in the event of a power outage.
The lighting industry is always improving and, like any other industry, it becomes important to keep up with the latest technology and trends. Many modern battery lamps use fluorescent lights, which not only increases the general output of a battery lamp, but also makes it eco-friendly due to its longevity. As an alternative to this, many lamps will use LED bulbs, which are designed to last much longer than conventional bulbs, are non-toxic and produce less energy wastage. And, of course, the batteries used can be rechargeable, resulting in far less power being used over their lifetime.
When choosing one or a variety of battery lamps to be used within your home, there are a selection of things you should consider before you start looking, such as where the lamp will be used (indoor or outdoor), in which room will it be placed and what kind of atmosphere do you want to create? Is it a clear and focused environment you are creating or a soft, cosy and relaxing one? Do you want to be able to move the direction of the light or would you rather it was fixed? Are you looking for a dimmable option? Once you know what type of battery lamp you are looking for you can narrow down your search and find something fantastic to suit your home.
