When designing home lighting, it is important to combine function and beauty: it should be lighted enough, and if necessary, it would be possible with the same luminaries to create intimate lighting.
Lighting for the corridor
It does not require very strong light. LED or halogen bulbs are best suited. Since light is often needed here, it is not advisable to use fluorescent light bulbs because they are slowly getting lighted up. The place near the mirror is to be additionally illuminated by local light (wall lamps or diverted ceiling lights).
Lighting for the bathroom
It requires bright and strong lighting. The lighting should not change the natural colors, means, the best suited are halogen bulbs. The luminaire should be enclosed so that it does not accumulate water vapor and moisture. In the mirror zone, local lighting is required, otherwise, shadows on the face will occur.
Lighting for the living room
Here, it should be possible to choose different light sources for specific needs. You can use desk luminaires and torches to help create a comfortable environment and they are very comfortable to light up different zones in the living room area. At the same time, it saves a lot of electricity, because no common lighting is used.
Common lighting can be mounted in the ceiling and used suspended luminaires with all types of bulbs. Also, light regulators should be kept in mind, helping to change the intensity of light and create a cozy environment.You can use the hidden LED lighting in the ceilings, niches, shelves in order to create a comfortable environment.
Lighting for the dining room
Dining room’s light should, first of all, create a pleasant and cozy atmosphere when eating. The table to eat is advisable to illuminate separately. There best fit the low-down lamps. The recommended distance from the luminaire to the table is 60-80 cm. People are sitting below the luminaire, so they are not dazzled. If the table is very long, it is advisable to install more than one luminaire. This will create a cozy atmosphere.
Lighting for the kitchen
A kitchen is a zone that requires stronger lighting than a living room or bedroom. In the kitchen, lighting can be zoned. The strongest light source is advisable to be installed where food is produced. The lighting of the work area should illuminate the plane on which the food is prepared.
This lighting is associated with furniture. The luminaires are installed in the lower part of the cabinets. This should be done so that they do not appear as individual luminaires, they should be an additional part of the furniture. LED strips or special built-in halogen and fluorescent lamps are most suitable for this.
At the top of the table, I recommend hanging a downlight, which will provide a lot of comforts and become a kind of traction zone. For the decorative lighting in the kitchen can be used wall lamps, which will subtly illuminate the walls. They will greatly enhance the interior.
Lighting for the children room
This space requires more general lighting, as well as lighting fixtures for games and homework. There best suite the conventional halogen or energy saving fluorescent bulbs. It is advisable to mount a wall lamp to the bed or to set up a table lamp that provides the safety forthe child at night.
Lighting for the bedroom
The common light should be cozy, not too strong. It is advisable to use a light regulator. The bedroom lighting should be nice and warm. The overall mild lighting can be achieved by using luminaires with milky glass or plastic, with the best possible matte finish.
The light source should be placed above, on one side or on both sides of the bed. The light should be directed in such a way that there is no falling shadow and it does not interfere with the sleeping person. It is advisable to illuminate the bedroom closet. If the closet is large, it is convenient to illuminate its interior.
The lighting of the entrance hall and the staircase
These rooms must be well lit and the light distributed equally. Like in corridors, the best is to use the halogen or LED bulbs in these rooms. Stair steps must be clearly visible, the lights must not interfere with climbing the stairs. LED modules on the stairs side are suitable for lighting up the stairs.
