How To Choose Lighting For Your Home?
We all know that lighting has an important role in making us feel a certain way in certain rooms or environments. It contributes to the ambiance and functionality of any space. Given the correct lighting, one can feel motivated, and hence, productivity is enhanced while one can also feel relaxed and comforted after a long day’s work. If so much rests on lights then you must know how to choose the proper lighting for your home.
Types of lighting
There are mainly three types of lighting and these are:
Ambient Lighting- This is generally the primary source of light in any room. It is there not for style but to simply light the room when you enter it. However, that doesn’t mean it cannot be stylish and elegant. Ambient lighting includes anything from overhead fixtures to recessed lighting. Usually, it is the contractor that decides the amount of ambient light your room will have. Kitchens and bathrooms tend to have brighter ambient lighting than the other rooms.
Task Lighting- As the name suggests, task lighting provides light for a specific task like reading a book, writing, or doing makeup in front of the mirror. These are limited to brightening only a part of the room and come in different shapes and sizes. You can mount them on walls, fix them to mirrors, swivel, or even rotate them.
Different Lighting Needs of Each Room
If your house has an entryway, a living room, a bedroom, a kitchen, and a bathroom then you need to know the lighting needs of each of these to decide what lighting to purchase.
The entryway is the part of the house that your main door directly opens into, and hence, it is the part your guests will see first. You need to ensure the lighting is friendly and inviting in the entryway. If the space has a tall ceiling, you can mount a chandelier. Avoid fixing tasks or accent lights in this area.
Living or drawing rooms are meant for entertainment and relaxation, and your lights should say the same. You must incorporate different types of lighting here, such as bright lights and lamps for reading or studying. Sconces are also a good choice for this area.
You need to install bright lights in the dining room to ensure that you can have a pleasant conversation as you eat your food here. You can place a chandelier or a couple of pendant lights in this area. However, remember not to make it too bright by fixing LED lights in the dining room.
Kitchens are a tricky area when it comes to lighting as all parts do not require the same intensity of light. You can keep certain areas that are not used often dimly lit while the main cooking area must have adequate light. Pendant lights are an excellent choice for this area.
Bedrooms are essentially places where you sit back and relax so all they require is warm lighting. The mirror area can have task lighting as well as the bedside area.
