Lighting essentials for WFM and HBL : from Sembawang Lighting

With the current Phase 2 Heightened Awareness situation at the moment, most Singaporeans are working or studying at home. It is important to ensure that your lighting is adequate to avoid eye strain.

At our showroom, we are carrying out social distancing measures, limiting to 2 pax per group. If you want to save yourself a trip, our online catalogue is on www.sembawanglightinghouse.com, where you can view products and place an order. 

We offer a one-stop solution to your lighting needs. We can arrange installation service by local, experienced freelance electricians, if you require. Labor fees to be paid onsite to electricians. 

1. Acrylic ceiling lamps

Having proper lighting gets you in right frame of mind to begin working each day, and sustain the momentum through the day. 

For study and home offices, we recommend 24w or 36w LED ceiling lamps. Some of these lights come with tricolor LED lighting, which means that you can switch to a relaxing warm white lights in the evening as you catch up on Netflix. Avoid straining your eyes by making sure the light is adequate for your work and study. For smaller areas, such as walkways, service yards, toilets, 12w or 18w LED ceiling lamp should be sufficient. 

Another benefit of these acrylic ceiling lamps is that the LED panel and driver is easily replaceable, if it spoils a few years down the road. Simply remove the acrylic cover and replace the internal LED panel and driver. These spare parts can be bought from us or from hardware, DIY shops outside. We offer a 3-month carry in warranty for LED panels and drivers bought from us.

2. Hanging lamps

As working hours extend into the evening hours, it is difficult to demarcate the home office and family space. To create a cozy ambience in the evenings, a hanging lamp at the dining table with warm/yellow lighting can help your family bond over dinner. 

At Sembawang Lighting, we offer an extensive collection of hanging lamps ranging from crystal chandeliers, industrial-theme hanging lights, resort-style wooden pendants, and scandinvavian-themed handing lights.

We offer a few customizations to make the lighting fixture unique to your house: 

  • Lighting base: Round base or long bar 
  • Length of wires: Our standard wire length is 50cm. Feel free to make them the same height or in varying heights, or as we like to say it, "do-re-mi" style, in ascending or descending order. If you have a high ceiling and need an extension of wires, we can customize it for you for a small charge. 
  • Lighting color: We provide a single color 9w LED bulb free-of-charge. You can upgrade to a tricolor LED bulb that switches from daylight, cool white, and warm white when you switch on and off.
