Hiya

i am thinking of replacing the light bulbs in my own PPOR...at the moment two of the rooms have fluourescent light tubes and one of them have the normal light bulbs ...but i find that they are not so bright? is it because of the frosted light fittings?

... with the change i would have to get the electrician in to change the whole light fittings....

My concern is the rooms are where my kids do a lot of their reading and homework....

What are the best lighting in this instance and what is the wattage (??) for the kids eyesight?

thanks!!:)

Rather than light up the whole room, why not just get the kids a desk lamp?

Table lamps

Hi Alan

Yes, i do have table lamps but the kids find it fidgety...they already have wires all over the place from their laptops and computers...

BTW, you would still have to decide which light bulbs for which type of table lamps wouldn't you? and doesn't it get complicated then when you have fluorescent overhead and then for eg energy saving bulbs for table lamps???

What wattage is suitable for reading and doing homework? If i bulb is 40 watt does 2 bulbs equal 80watts?

50W halogens or their LED equivalent would be OK I think.

fluorescent overhead are energy saving (from the olden days) :)

Yes

The frosted fitting will reduce around 40% of the light ... I'd put something in that was open at the bottom to allow the light thru.

If you want to save energy you can get LED lights - they are only 5-9W but are quite bright. Expensive though (~$30 a bulb!)
