How to properly illuminate the spaces of the home


How to light a bedroom

Instead of using a centered ceiling light fixture, which will dazzle with too much light in a space that doesn't require as much illumination, it's preferable that you choose other options. A strip light is a good option if you are looking to create a modern bedroom with an arrangement of light bulbs in alternating directions.

Another very contemporary option is decorative wall sconces, with which you will achieve an indirect light that will prepare you for rest in the last moments before going to sleep. Decorative wall sconces can also be purchased in various styles: vintage, rustic, Nordic... In this way, you will give your room a unique personality.

As decoration, you can also opt for a table lamp or a pair of hanging lamps over one of the bedside tables, always with a dim light that does not disturb the warm and relaxed atmosphere of the room. Pendant lamps at different heights are becoming more and more fashionable for their modern and original effect.

In case you use your bedroom for tasks that require more light, such as reading or working on the computer, you can install a reading wall lamp. Sconces designed for reading provide a focal point of light that will not disturb the other person trying to sleep, while providing the perfect lighting for reading or working.

The key to having an aesthetically pleasing and functional bedroom with good interior LED lighting is to strike a balance between decorative lights and functional lamps to give the room a unique style that makes it stand out without losing utility.

How should be the lighting of a living room

As for the different areas of the living room, in the living area you can opt for a modern and stylish ceiling soffit that does not detract from the visibility of the television. If the ceilings are very high, it is better to opt for a pendant lamp that is not only decorative but also functional, giving general light to the whole area of the sofa. If you are looking for a contemporary aesthetic you can combine a series of decorative wall sconces with recessed spotlights that provide enough light.

When it comes to the dining area, it is trendy to put several pendant lights at different heights or of different sizes above the main table, although you can also opt for a single pendant lamp, large and striking, in the style you prefer. In this way, you can separate the dining room from the living area and create a visually aesthetic ambience.

The interior ambient lighting should be indirect, creating a spotlight on the main or outstanding elements of the living room (a vase, a painting, a floral arrangement, the fireplace...) with floor lamps, table lamps... In this way, you will achieve a striking and contemporary composition without losing the warmth of this room.

How to light a kitchen

Due to the high light requirement and the use of light during many hours of the day, the kitchen needs energy efficient interior lighting, so your best option is LED lights. Recessed spotlights, downlights and indoor wall lights, specially designed for kitchens, feature bright LED bulbs and a simple design that makes them easy to clean after grease build-up as a result of cooking. You should ensure that they are placed in locations that maximize visibility, avoiding unlit areas.

You should also complement the general interior lighting with lighting in the worktop area. In this way, with LED strips or sconces you can facilitate your work when cooking, perfectly illuminating the entire countertop.

If you have an island or peninsula in your kitchen and also want to add decorative lighting, you can include one or more decorative pendant lamps in warmer tones. But avoid overloading the room with too much light that can dazzle you. Above all, you should aim for efficiency.

How to light a bathroom

The bathroom mirror should have interior LED lighting to ensure functionality, without dark areas. This can be achieved with a few bathroom sconces above the mirror or on the sides, or with recessed spotlights whose light is directed at the mirror.

In the bathtub or shower area, it is advisable to install recessed spotlights that resist moisture while providing illumination. The more illuminated this area is, the larger the bathroom will appear.

Finally, you can add decorative lights in the form of spotlights or wall sconces that highlight relevant elements, such as flowers.

What type of light is best for each room?

Since the bedroom is a space where relaxation and rest are sought, you should opt for a warm light that turns the space into a cozy room.

Just like the bedroom, the living room should be a comfortable and cozy space, with warm-toned light. This is also achieved by careful and decorative ambient lighting.

A kitchen offers many color temperature possibilities depending on the style you want to achieve. If you opt for a modern style, look for interior LED lighting in cool tones or neutral white, while if you want a more rustic kitchen or have darker furniture you can use a warmer interior lighting. Of course, the kitchen requires a bright light with a higher level of light than other rooms in the house.

In the bathroom, to avoid highlighting all the imperfections of your skin, use a warmer light without being excessively dull. You can also try a neutral white to get more natural light.

Surely with these keys you have found new ideas to illuminate your home. In Prendeluz we offer you all kinds of interior lighting solutions to decorate your home in an aesthetic and functional way. Explore our catalog and give a facelift to the interior of your home!
