Properly selected light in the room, not just part of the decor - it affects your sleep and mood
Everyone strives to make their home cozy, trying to choose the right lighting, so that all areas are well lit, but how to do it right? - few people try to immerse themselves in this, because there are so many lighting options in our time. What many people know is the types of lighting. Each light bulb has its own purpose! So to optimize your home's lighting, first think about how you use each room.
General or ambient lighting acts as the general lighting of the room. It illuminates the entire room and is considered the" natural light " in the room. You can use a chandelier, pendant light, track lighting, or wall sconces to create ambient light that fills the room.
Work lighting illuminates the work or reading area. You want this lighting to be brighter than the surrounding lighting, so contrast focuses the light in the specified area. Table lamps and built-in kitchen lights are typical lighting options. But hanging lights and track lighting can also be used to illuminate tasks, but it depends on how you light up the lighting in your room, and how bright your light bulbs are
Accent lighting highlights a specific area, such as a work of art or a bookcase. This usually creates a shadow around the subject for dramatic effect. Wall lights and landscape lights are common accent lights
Living room: In addition to the ambient lighting, we recommend using an accent light in one corner of the room. Focus on an object, such as a painting, an interior accent, or just a chair.
Kitchen: Add ambient light overhead, then reduce the preset lighting to illuminate the space where you are cooking. If possible, the sink is also a good place to add work lighting.
Bedroom: Your bedroom is usually lit by work desks or bedside tables. You can try to direct the light away from the bed
Soft White / Warm White (2700 Kelvin): best suited for bedrooms and living rooms; providing them with a traditional warm, cozy atmosphere.
Bright White / Cool White (4100 Kelvin): best for kitchens, bathrooms, or garages; giving rooms a whiter, more energetic look.
Daylight (5000-6000 Kelvin): best in bathrooms, kitchens, and basements; good for reading, complex projects, or applying makeup - provides the greatest color contrast
Ceiling lights : Pretty standard for ambient lighting. They are ideal in foyers, hallways, bedrooms, work areas, and staircases. In the corridors, we recommend placing lamps every eight to ten feet for sufficient illumination
Chandeliers : When used for general or external lighting, it is best to use them in the dining room or in the bedroom.
Wall lamps: Usually these are sconces. They can be used in any room for ambient lighting, task lighting, or accent lighting, depending on where you put them and which light bulb you use
