Tips For Home Lighting
Well designed lighting helps make your home more comfortable. Please read our tips on how to design lighting for different spaces and how to choose the right lighting!
Create a basic light level with general lights that complement natural light. The luminosity should be sufficient for cleaning. Use light indirectly – either dimmable lamps that reflect light through the ceilings and walls. This way, the amount of light can be adjusted for different needs and for different times of the day and year. Then choose lamps for certain place-specific activities, like above the dining table and on the nightstand. Put finishing touches using atmospheric lamps that make the space interesting.
Consider what tasks you may be undertaking in each room where lighting can affect or aid you. Cooking requires more concentrated lighting, therefore a combination of bright downlights and recess lighting, in cabinets and above stove tops, is useful. For reading, flexible and directional lighting aimed away from you is better. Powder rooms require a combination of sidelights and downlights. Dimmers will quickly become your new best friend, providing an energy efficient and effective way to quickly change the atmosphere and warmth of a room.
Many think that in good lighting, the whole space is evenly illuminated from top-down using things like target lamps embedded into the ceiling. Lamps that fulfill different lighting functions create more interesting and calmer results.
Use lighting to subtly (or not so subtly) focus on a feature wall, architectural element or key possession (like your mahogany leather sofa or winged armchair). Wall mounted lights symmetrically arranged on either side of a statement mirror above the mantelpiece of a fireplace will add warmth, sophistication and elegance to a room.
Keep theme, colour schemes and material finishes consistent throughout the home, especially when it comes to lighting. Too many different styles in a sordid array throughout the home can be confusing on the eye and will cause uneasiness. Neutral, lighter tones will open up a space and make it appear larger, statement pops of colour (e.g. through lampshades) will add interest, while darker hues add a touch of luxury and cosiness. Keep it simple and consistent.
