In the past, it was enough to install one ceiling lamp or wall lamp as the main lighting in the house . Fortunately, now the light source can be adjusted to the mood, purpose of the room and the overall design of the room. If you are a fan of minimalist, loft or Scandinavian style, you probably want the ceiling lamp to complement your interior. Shape, color and the entire structure are, of course, important aspects. Also make sure that the designed spot lighting affects your comfort and well-being. See how to do it!
The impact of spot lighting on your well-being and... health
During the day, you are certainly active, doing a lot of things, talking to people or working. The evening is the time when you can finally relax on the sofa, drink delicious tea or just spend time in the comfort of your home. That's why choosing lighting for your room is so important. Sunlight is needed for everyday functioning and it determines the rhythm of the day and also provides the body with the necessary vitamin D. The rays are also a source of energy and motivate us to take action every day. However, it is worth noting that natural light is not with you all the time. In the evening or in the autumn and winter, this is quite problematic. Take care of the light color of your lighting to improve your well-being and feel comfortable.
The color of light is expressed in Kelvin [K] and it indicates the lighting temperature. The higher the index, the cooler the light. Below are the basic indications of light color:
- 2000 K – candle light color;
- 2800 K – warm white color;
- 3000 K – color of sunrise and sunset;
- 3200 K – incandescent color;
- 4000 K – white color;
- 5000 K – cool white color;
- 6500 K – cold color;
- 10,000 – 15,000 K – the color of a clear sky;
- 28,000 – 30,000 K – the color of lightning.
Are you wondering how to match the light color to your rhythm of life?
We already explain how it affects your well-being. The cold light color is perfect for production places, workshops and dental offices. It works perfectly for people who work with great precision. They can also be used in spot lighting in office rooms. It also gives a modern look and, interestingly, optically enlarges the room.
The neutral color of light , like cold light, stimulates action. Works well as general lighting. It can be used in commercial premises, offices and at home. For example, it will work perfectly in bathrooms or kitchens under spotlights while preparing meals.
In turn, the warm color of light gives the interior a cozy atmosphere, making it a perfect place to relax. That's why it is so often chosen for hotels and restaurants.
Now that you know what the colors of light are and how they affect your well-being, you can design spot lighting on the ceiling . A warm color will work better in a hanging lamp in the bedroom, and a cold color in a ceiling lamp in the kitchen or bathroom.
Spot lighting – where will it be useful?
In stores you will find a huge selection of spot lighting - from spot lamps, through hanging lamps, spotlights to entire track systems. Thanks to this, you are able to adapt the functionality of the products to your room. In our opinion, spot lighting will be perfect especially in the living room, kitchen, and - as you well know from the text about the Troost bedside table - the bedroom.
Why is it worth installing spotlights in the kitchen? This is where most of the action happens. You admit that every celebration or meeting with friends must end here... Moreover, lamps hanging over the kitchen island are the perfect solution if you want to prepare meals. Take into account not only the color of the light, but also the appearance of the entire structure. You can match it with other accessories.
If you are choosing a lamp for the living room, first assess the style of the entire interior. Lighting should complement it. For example, one, two or three ceiling lamps will work perfectly above a large table with an oak top . Eating will become more enjoyable and comfortable. The selection of lighting will also allow you to optically expand small interiors or highlight a distinctive place. You can direct several light points, for example, to decorative elements that will immediately catch your eye.
In turn, in the bedroom, well-planned lighting will help you create an incredible atmosphere that will help you fully relax. Evening reading or choosing your wardrobe will become even more enjoyable. In the bedroom, we prefer warm and subtly diffused light colors. All this to create a cozy atmosphere.
