A guide to indoor lighting
There are many factors which need to be considered when choosing the indoor lighting for your house. Probably the most important of these factors is the size of the room that you intend to light. Unless it’s a very tiny room, generally most rooms would require more than one light source to ensure an adequate amount of light. Therefore the room size typically determines the kind of lighting required for a room.
Also, the type of room plays a major factor in the kind of lighting required. For example, a bedroom would have totally different lighting requirements to a kitchen. The kind of lighting used for a kitchen would not work for a bedroom. Another factor which needs to be taken into account when considering the indoor lighting for a room is whether the room or part of it is to be used for a specific task such as reading or cooking. Both these tasks would have different lighting requirements. However the type of lighting used for these purposes would be task lighting which is generally brighter when compared to normal lighting. Another type of lighting is accent lighting. This is used to highlight a particular feature of the room in order to make it stand out.
Indoor lighting for bedroom and bathroom
Bedrooms- we all want our bedrooms to feel cosy! Often, bedrooms are fitted with standard lighting which is generally too bright for this type of room. This can lead to interference in the sleep patterns of the room occupants. To create a calm and soothing effect, we suggest the installation of wall lighting in your bedroom. This would be in addition to independent switches for when you need to read. Another suggestion recommended by our electrical experts is installing the lights in such a way that they do not shine directly on the bed but are angled away to provide ambient light.
Bathrooms- After the kitchen, bathrooms are the rooms which require the brightest lights in order to cater to personal grooming activities. An optimum combination of sidelights and LED downlights are recommended. This would help to achieve the right balance and assist in providing the correct amount of light for both cleaning and personal grooming activities. The bath in particular should be illuminated with lights of higher lumens (between 4000-8000 lumens).
Indoor lighting for kitchen and dining room
Kitchen- Pendant lamps offer an efficient way of illuminating work surfaces in the kitchen. These pendant lamps could either be general lamps or directional lamps. Directional lamps are useful for focusing the light source on a particular area. This is in comparison to general lamps which spread the light throughout the room. Combining a mix of LED downlights for overhead lighting and pendant lights for task-specific lighting is the ideal combination that you want for your kitchen!
Dining room- In this room, the primary focus of the light should be on the dining table. The dining room should have a combination of overhead lighting and wall lighting. This would help to create a layered form of lighting. The wall lighting would be particularly useful should you have art or paintings hanging on the walls which would be appropriately illuminated.
