Today we bring you home design tips on lighting: we are sure that at some point in your life you have entered into a room with weak light. On the other hand, sometimes the lighting is impeccable and you didn’t notice it. When the lights are one their right place everyone looks their best, relaxed and comfortable and embedded in the ambiance.
Fixtures and bulbs are the option to create an inviting environment, but be careful: do not overly bright lighting, or your guests will run away from your home with headaches. “You don’t want guests in your home to feel like they’re waiting in a hospital emergency room,” says interior designer Andrew Galuppi.
Localize your light source
A common misconception is that you need to light the whole room. Try instead to incorporate multiple points of light. The best lighting in a room is when different spots of light mix together well. Also, picking the right lampshade can make all the difference.
Always add a dimmer
For multipurpose rooms, dimmers are essential. “They allow for flexibility depending on the time of day, event, or mood, and they’re a great energy saver,” says Rockwell, who recommends a licensed electrician for any electrical work. Dimmers reduce energy consumption and increase bulb life. She believes every overhead light should be wired for a dimmer. Be aware that just one point of light in a room it means that you are going to look at your shadow all day long, it is depressing on itself!
Know your bulbs
Fluorescent tubes should be avoided at all costs. It gives a strange sensation in a room, everything looks off. Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) on the contrary are a great option.
Screw-in LEDs have a long life, but can be pricey. Adelman prefers the dimmable white A-19 LED light bulb from TheLEDLight.com. “It’s good for any incandescent replacement, and I love the warmth and the shape.”
Consider the function
The light should be totally different depending on the purpose of the space.
In the dining room, an overhead chandelier with a dimmer works best. If you’re using track lighting, be sure not to shine the light directly into the faces of guests around your table. Kitchen lighting is more complex. Pinpoint your work areas and light them directly. In living rooms, use a combination of floor lamps, table lamps, and down-lights (recessed or track lighting). “Here the lighting should be part of the decor,” says Galuppi. Bathrooms are trickier. Some say to go the clinical route—the brighter the better—especially at the vanity. But others prefer a softer glow from dimmable wall sconces.
Compromise and incorporate both with the addition of candles. “Candlelight helps you unwind while you soak in the bath,” says Galuppi. Master bedrooms should feature good reading lights at the bed and desk, and a task light for getting dressed. Any overhead lighting should be fit with a dimmer.
