The latest building regulations require all new houses have to have a certain amount of the lighting installed as low energy, with low energy light fittings so that conventional bulbs cannot be fitted later.
In order to establish what lighting option we wanted in the bathrooms, our freindly electrician rigged up a board with three low energy and one led type of light suitable for using in damp environments.
This was very helpful as it avoided that popular mistake of buying by appearance. We were able to put the test board up in a bathroom in the dark, and then select each light individually to see how much light it gave. There was a clear winner and we will put some information about this on the blog soon.
