In most cases this matches the national voltage, provided by electric companies to homes. In the United Kingdom this is 230V AC, whereas the United States uses 120V AC. There are variations across the world, so if light fittings are being purchased from other countries, it is important to ensure that they will work in the installation. Current Current is the flow of electric charge. The SI unit of current is the amp (A). There is a maximum amount of current that can be taken into a home, and this in turn limits what can be used for lighting.

The colour of objects is determined by the light that is reflected from their surfaces, and thus received by the eye. Light travels in straight lines, and so it is easy to predict where light will fall within a room. Standard mathematics can be used to determine if a light source will be visible and have a high glare, or if light will fall on a particular surface. When light travels through different materials, such as air and glass, then the direction of the light will change. Most of the time this is not relevant, but when lighting glass it is important to remember the principle of total internal reflection.

However, if the surfaces being lit are different colours, then it may be acceptable or desirable to have two different colour temperatures lighting them. Just as with paint and fabrics within a room, the colour temperature is something that needs to be tailored to the room and matched to the décor. It is important to note that lamps with a filament change colour as they are dimmed. As the filament cools, it will go from emitting a cooler white light to emitting colours more in the yellow and amber ranges.
