How to Choose the Perfect LightingPosted: February 21, 2013
When it comes to the interior design of any building one thing often left until last is the lighting. Whether you are redesigning the décor of your existing home, decorating a new home, or even redesigning the interior of your office or workplace lighting is vitally important. The use of light can transform any space, set the scene and create the perfect ambience so it must be chosen wisely.
The first thing to think about when it comes to choosing the perfect lighting is the room you are choosing it for and the purpose. Is it to create a soft ambience, say in a bedroom, or is to really refresh the space for example in an office?
If you are looking to create a relaxed setting then table lamps and floor lamps are a great idea. They can light up dark corners and bring a sense of warmth to any room, and are also ideal for reading by. In the kitchen spotlights are one of the most popular choices. Allowing an attractive aesthetic look as well as being hugely practical, spotlights will ensure that you have a creative space to prepare food and do other household work.
Being environmentally aware is also a big concern when choosing lighting for any room. Energy efficient bulbs are really a must have in today’s society and are now available in a good range of wattages, suitable for most settings.
The home office or workplace office needs a much more practical yet still stylish design than any other place. This is because the light not only ensures that you can see and work clearly on a multitude of tasks it also boosts mood and productivity levels. If your workspace is dark and dingy then creativity and productivity levels will be low; transform your office into a bright and light space and the change will be hugely noticeable.
By far the most practical, attractive and cost efficient lighting option for home offices and workspaces are LED lights. A brilliant replacement for more traditional fluorescent strip lighting, which is used in many work places today, LED light panels provide high performance and substantial savings on energy consumption, which of course is hugely beneficial especially in a large business or office.
Easy to install, LED light panels are designed to fit directly into the existing walls of your property, ideal for suspended ceilings they can also be surface mounted to walls. A great option for meeting rooms, corridors, or and domestic space this modern lighting option makes the best possible use of LED lighting technology. One of the most important advances within the industry since the invention of the light bulb, LED’s are becoming more and more popular and the technology is constantly progressing.
