Skillfully arranging the light sources in the apartment, you can create the right mood and affect the well-being of the residents. The cool light coming from a large, centrally placed chandelier will stimulate, while the relaxation will be supported by dimmed light, the source of which are sconces and small lamps. In creating a cozy mood in the apartment, LED lighting is becoming increasingly popular.
In order to create a unique atmosphere in a flat, you should choose several light sources. The most popular are three: main, functional and decorative. All at once occur mainly in such rooms as: living room, kitchen, dining room or office. The main or upper lighting is to illuminate the whole room. Such light should have a color temperature similar to natural daylight.
Functional lighting is usually placed somewhere near a sofa or armchair and it gives us a reading light, i.e. a light that fulfills a specific function. We also have decorative lighting, i.e. a lamp that stands, for example, somewhere on the buffet, but it is lighting that no longer has its purely technical function, but gives the whole room a mood.
Decorative lighting should have a temperature lower than 5000 K, thanks to which it will create a cozy, relaxing mood in the room. It should be remembered that warm rooms should be used in rest areas, such as a living room or bedroom. In the office, however, it is worth using a cold-colored light, which will promote excitement and concentration. Warm light will also perfectly combine with wooden furniture and interiors with a classic interior design. The cold light will well display the interiors in a modern, eg loft style, in which glass and metal reign supreme.
This year you can also see a lot of changes going in the direction of the source of light. We use LED lighting much more often, which is probably visible in every area of life. However, very often the same lamps that the manufacturers previously offered with normal lighting, today are offered with LED lighting and this is usually their second life.
LED diodes are becoming more and more popular, especially as a decorative light source. Especially eagerly used in the bedroom, where it helps to create a romantic, cozy atmosphere. LEDs can be used to illuminate the bed frame, headboard, mirror next to the dresser. Lighting of this type also works well in the kitchen. Tapes with LEDs can be attached under kitchen cabinets and above the dishwasher, so that even when we are turned away from the main light source, we can work efficiently. It is also a good idea to stick tape with LED diodes in the interior of the drawer, so that you can take out the necessary thing without lighting the main light.
Good lighting of the apartment is particularly important in autumn and winter. The lack of natural sunlight affects the human body negatively, often leading to weakness, apathy and even periodic depression.
