The Importance Of Lighting In The Home

In the “science” of interior design, lighting is critical, and interior designers know it. These propose to play with both the position of the light source and with the type of bulb, colors, white (colder) or yellow (warmer) light, the height of the point of view, its inclination, … All This leads to a state of mind that can help us develop or feel what we want in each room of the house. We could say that lighting is the central axis of all right decoration and to be able to illuminate correctly we must start from a general base and add points of light. For example, starting from generally white light and placing small points of warmer light depending on what we want to achieve in the room and play with the sensations. In a dining room or living room, it is essential to have at least 2 points, a white one for when there are guests or meetings, and a warm one for when we watch television and want to relax.

Important things that must be taken into account, and of which we have not yet spoken, are the shadows. All light has its shadow, and we must ensure that it is projected in the right place or, if we prefer, to avoid it. For this, the strength of the beam of light and its inclination play a fundamental role.
