Lighting design is very important when decorating a new home. Let’s take a look at the 5 best lighting design solutions for different spaces.
1 Lighting design of the entrance
The entrance is related to the first impression of the home, and the space lighting should show the personality of the space; pay attention to avoid the light cast on the face of the person entering the door and cause shadows, so the location is more appropriate at the junction of the entrance and deep into the room, and avoid only light source.
The light switch should be on the wall next to the door at the entrance, or a sensor light switch should be used to facilitate opening without having to fumble in the dark.
The design should be bright but not dazzling, to avoid the light source being too strong and making the visual focus of the entrance monotonous and boring. The lighting of the porch can consider changes in levels and hues, such as: warm colors and warm colors, cool colors and refreshing.
2 living rooms
The living room is a very important public activity place in the home. It is not easy to create a warm and relaxed living room atmosphere. Living room lighting needs to be diversified.
It is not easy to use the mutual cooperation of lights to create an atmosphere.
So, what is the correct lighting arrangement?
The basic lighting can be used as a ceiling light. The most suitable light is warm white light, which can keep the whole space fresh and natural, and the slight yellow light can make the living room more warm. The selection of ceiling lights should be determined according to the area, height and style of the living room.
If the living room area is not large, only twelve or three square meters, and the shape of the room is irregular, then you might as well choose a ceiling lamp.
If the floor height is lower than 2.6 meters, ceiling lamps can be used to make the living room look high, and floor lamps, wall lamps, downlights, etc. with local lighting (warm light of 2700k-3000k) can be used to increase a friendly and harmonious atmosphere, but not too much .
If the living room is tall and large, in order to coordinate the brightness difference between the upper and lower spaces, chandeliers can be used to highlight the magnificence of the space.
Spotlights and downlights are typical non-main lights, with strong modernity and prominent focus, which can create an indoor lighting atmosphere with the “finishing finishing touch” effect.
Light strip lighting belongs to concealed lighting, which closely combines lighting and architectural structure. It has two forms:
One is to use an opaque decorative panel parallel to the wall to block the light source, illuminate the wall, and bring a dramatic light effect to the wainscoting, draperies, and wall decorations.
The other is to turn the light source upwards, so that the light is reflected by the ceiling, so that the ceiling has a floating effect, forming a hazy feeling.
The lighting method of the restaurant is mainly based on the local lighting of the dining center. The restaurant lighting should choose warm light/yellow light as much as possible. The warm light of about 3000k is more suitable. Under such a color temperature, the food looks more attractive.
The lamp directly above the dining table is the main body of the light, and the under-cover type and multi-head type lamps are mostly selected, and the light source is only 65cm away from the desktop.
The style of lamps and lanterns should be consistent with the overall style of the restaurant to create the bright, soft and natural atmosphere required by the restaurant. It is not advisable to use upward-facing lamps, because the tabletop should be used as the visual focus when dining.
Auxiliary lighting is also very important to set off the atmosphere of the restaurant. There are many ways to use auxiliary lighting, such as setting lighting in dining room furniture (cabinet, etc.); local lighting of artworks and decorations; using wall lamps to individually describe wall materials and colors, etc.
The auxiliary lights used in the restaurant are mainly to create a light and shadow atmosphere in the environment. The brightness is lower than that of the lights above the table to highlight the main light source. At the same time, the light and shadow effects of the auxiliary lights should be ordered and not disordered.
Only by appropriately reducing the lighting intensity of certain parts, it is possible to highlight the areas you want to emphasize.
The bedroom is the place where people spend the longest time at home. Carefully designing the bedroom lighting is conducive to creating a romantic, warm and comfortable atmosphere in the bedroom. Bedroom lighting is suitable for indirect or diffuse lighting. The color of the top surface should be light, so that the effect of emitting light is good.
But there are exceptions, such as small wattage spotlights with a dark top background, which can create a romantic, soft, and sensual atmosphere.
However, the lighting in the bedroom should also try to avoid dazzling lights and lamps with strange and complicated shapes, and it should not be too dark, so as not to bring a sense of depression.
For better indirect or diffuse effect, you can use a light-colored, light-transparent drapery under the lamp to make the room look full of mood. Try to avoid placing the bed under the chandelier to avoid the light causing irritation to the person lying on the bed.
Children’s rooms need more lights, so they might as well be placed at different times of your child’s growth. Because children are in the period of growth and development.
The selection of lamps should not only consider whether their safety and materials are environmentally friendly, and whether the shape meets the psychological characteristics of children. For lamps used for learning lighting, it is more important to consider whether the light source meets the actual needs of children.
