Bulbs (Artificial Light)
Once you’ve settled on the type of light you want, you can look deeper into the available options. For example, if you’ve decided on using lamps because they’re portable and cheap – do you want a standing lamp, table lamp or even an anglepoise lamp which you can move to light wherever you’re working?
You’ll also have various options for bulbs for those lights including halogen and LEDs. Halogen bulbs create powerful lights which can also provide heat – so bear this in mind if they’re situated near anything flammable in your garden shed.
LEDs, on the other hand, are very efficient and long-lasting. You can also choose from a lot of different LED colour options and styles rom striplights to spotlights.
LEDs can be great for garden workshops but they can cause shadows, flicker, and create a harsh lighting environment as they’re quite ‘cold’. Consider opting for a ‘warmer’ colour than white light. You can combat this, however, by using more lights or careful positioning for fluorescent tubes.
Compared to regular incandescent light bulbs, LEDs will also last longer.
