Why should you want to get lost in the dark when there are different options for modern lighting? People stay in an inviting environment if the lights and lamps are used correctly. With modern lighting, however, a balance must be struck:
- Find your light source
There is a common misconception about lighting the entire room. Instead, several light points can be integrated. Light levels can be combined to optimally illuminate your room. Choose the light sources and learn how to spread them.
- Add a dimmer
Dimmers are essential for multi-purpose rooms. These offer flexibility depending on the time of day, mood or event. Investing in dimmers is worthwhile because they extend the life of the lamp and reduce energy consumption.
- Study the lamps before using them
It is best to avoid fluorescent tubes, as these can lead to tired eyes and can make everything appear discolored. Compact fluorescent lamps are great and you have to be careful when trying to dispose of them. If you want long-lasting bulbs, you can use screw-in LEDs instead.
- Consider the function of the room
It is important to determine what the space will be used for. Watch TV or cook? A chandelier with dimmer is best suited for a dining room. Kitchen lighting is much more complex. Work areas require direct lighting. Worklights can be placed under the cupboards to the stove area for the appropriate lighting of the counter tops. A combination of floor lamps, downlights and table lamps can be used in the living rooms. Good reading lamps should be attached to the desk and bed. A workplace lamp can be used near the dressing table. Ceiling lights must be equipped with a dimmer.
