How to Choose the Type of Lighting

Time to assemble and decorate a Division, lighting is one of the most important factors to consider. The lights are very useful because they allow us to see, but also have a decorative and aesthetic part. But for these two functions are fulfilled, it is necessary to choose the correct light and suitable for each Division. That’s why we offer you this article, with all what you need to know about how to choose the type of lighting.

Type of light

We should decide whether we prefer halogen, fluorescent lights, light bulbs, LED, etc. Each type has its own benefits and a different degree of heat, we should consider to find out what kind of light is best suited for each Division of our House.

In domestic environments, the most common are the lights incandescent lights (“normal” lamps) and low consumption halogen, fluorescent lights may also be used, but are generally more common in offices and shops.

Color of light

Also if should consider the color of the lighting, the color generated by the lamp and the material that comes from the color of the lamp itself. The incandescent lights always give a warmer light, which accentuates the shades yellow and Brown; While the fluorescent give a feeling colder, emphasizing the colors Blue and green. Similarly, if the light is within a chandelier or behind a fabric of any color, it may be that the lighting varies, acquiring another tone and generating different sensations.

Proper installation

There are also many lighting appliques, as well as different types of lamps that determine the type of light that we have at home. In choosing the type of light that we install, we should also choose it depending on the space you have available, as well as distribution outlets and the rest of the electrical system, to have power outputs that provide electricity to the chandeliers and sources of light.

A good option, which moreover is very easy to install, are the foci bull’s-eye type that allow direct light to wherever we want and even put them inside of furniture and cabinets.

Lighting function

According to the function that meets, the lighting can be divided into:

  • : the General lighting of a Division, illuminated in all your extension.
  • Punctual: it limits itself to a place, as a supplement.
  • : Decorative Lighting with the aim to enhance a particular decorative element (painting, sculpture, etc.).
  • functional: is that adapts to the activities of the House. Plays a useful role in comfort and safety, as for example in the case of the light in the kitchen or the stairs.
  • Kinetics: are the lights “live” that allow you to create a moving, such as lighting candles and fireplaces.

Natural light

To illuminate properly a Division, we should not think only in artificial lighting but try to always make the most of sunlight entering through the doors and Windows. Sunlight can save electricity and generates a warm and natural environment, so we should make the most of the hours of sunshine in both summer and winter.

Second Division

To unite all these parameters we just saw, every room of our House will have a certain type of light. For you to get ideas and to have some reference, you can refer to the following articles:
