Default First leopard gecko help!

Hi, I just need some advise if possible, I'm planning on getting a leopard gecko within the next month or so, it will be an adult. I'm just a bit unsure on what heating method would be best, everyone seems to use heat mats on thermostats, however our set up (even when using a new heat mat) heats the ground but not the air temp. Our house is relatively cool so not sure this is ideal, pet shop recommended heat bulb (coloured so the gecko can't see it), is this an okay method even in a 2ft viv?? How difficult would it be to get a sufficient temp gradient in such a small viv? Also if this method is okay would I use a heat mat aswell to get the ground temp??
Sorry for so many questions.
