How to select ceiling lights for your room? - Tips & IdeasBy Aishwarya Kumar
Home Lighting Tweet 0 Comment(s)
Lights are undoubtedly the most intriguing part of any spatial design. It can impart a dramatic or a macabre vibe just by the play of tones, shadows, intensity and position. Lights are crucial in setting the mood right for various occasions. Notice how the tone and warmth of the illumination varies depending on the event. A romantic soiree will have dimmed down sanguine lights, whereas a discotheque will have trippy lights which will flip your mind. Similarly the light installation in the living room has to be functional plus aesthetically pleasing. But more than aesthetics it should fulfill its existence in the living room.
That brings us to the selection of the ceiling lights. But before that what are ceiling lights. Ceiling lights are just any lights that can be installed on the ceiling. For instance a tube light can be considered as a ceiling light, or a chandelier.
How to choose the perfect ceiling light for your room?
Selecting the perfect ceiling light for your space isn’t very difficult, although all the options available in the market can be overwhelming for some people. But once you have jotted down the answers to couple of questions listed below you will be sorted.
- In which room do you want the ceiling lights?
- How much light do you need?
- What is the purpose? Aesthetic or functional?
- Does it go with the overall theme of your space?
The type of light installed in the living room will be different from the light hanging in your portico. Since they both serve different purposes. Living rooms form the first room you enter into. So the lighting here could be the deciding factor in painting the tone for the rest of the house. It is the space where kids play, you relax, watch TV, indulge in casual conversations, and welcome guests. Try to infuse different shades of lights at different levels of intensity in the living room. A dimmer always helps in setting a warm and welcoming setback. You can use a designer chandelier or a ceiling light installation to create maximum attention of your guests. The light then becomes the focal point of the room.
If you are choosing ceiling lights for your study, then you have to go with something more bright. So that it doesn’t affect your vision while working or studying. Recessed lights are a good selection for study and work area since it doesn’t sting your eyes with the brightness.
When it comes to kitchen lighting pendant lights form a good choice. Moreover the myriad varieties of pendant lights available in market gives you plenty of options to choose from. But too many pendant lights can make the space look cluttered, and also the lights end up loosing their charm. Hence it is better to install just on pendant light preferably over the island counter or the dining table. Apart from the conventional types of ceiling lights you can also explore some DIY ceiling lights which are not that easy to fabricate with your own hands. Usually a warm white light with a dimmer works well if suspended over the dining table.
Balconies form the only outdoor space in an apartment, especially if you live in the city. It’s the space where you can relax and reconnect with nature. It’s a cozy space where you can unwind and feel the cool breeze on your face. Using bright lights in your outdoor space will ruin the entire arrangement. Try playing around with string lights, LED light chains, lanterns, handmade chandeliers and lamps, Moroccan lanterns and such lighting solution.
