Lighting is very essential in any one’s home. It makes a big difference on the overall appearance of the house and also makes a big impact on our performance around the house. Perfect amount of light is very essential to our task, to what we need to finish and things that needs our attention. Perfect lighting can also add drama and beauty to any part of our house.
Basically, there are three levels of lighting used in homes. This are determined by the amount of light it emits. These are:
- low level lighting, this is used in bedroom (for sleeping), while watching TV or while chilling in your most comfortable chair. In short, this level of lighting is specifically for relaxation. A good sample of low level lighting are mini pendant lights.
- Moderate level, this is not low but not too bright and this is used while eating or cooking. This type of lighting is also used while doing exercise or having a family game on the living room.
- High Level Lighting are the ones used for studying or task that needs more attention.
Here are some of the lighting that can be used in your home:
For the living room or dining room, chandelier lighting is the best option. Depending on the number of bulbs and the size of the chandelier, you can have a low level to moderate level lighting.
For areas that you want to be more relaxing, try installing sconces. This can also be used in bathrooms to give more drama or in walls.
Finding the perfect lighting for your home can be easy if you know what type of lighting you need for each part of the house. Always consider the amount of time you spend in each part of the house as your guide in choosing the right lighting fixture.
