Appropriate lighting levels are important for safety, comfort and energy efficiency

The proper lighting that you desire for your living room – dining room can be obtained with various qualities and quantities of light fixtures, as these areas have multiple roles.

Although there can be no general rule for illuminating such a space, we believe that it should start from floor light fixtures with powerful indirect lighting, using an integrated dimmer for variating light levels according to your needs.

A few table lamps will provide a certain ambiance or local illumination for reading, watching TV etc.
You can use wall sconces to achieve lighting enhancement or create decorative shading.

Finally, by adding various spotlights, you can highlight paintings, plants, sculptures or important details.
As experts suggest, bedrooms are the main areas where you should create an ambient atmosphere.

This can be achieved using floor light fixtures with integrated dimmers, allowing fluctuations in light levels, or with the use of wall sconces.

A classic pendant light is only acceptable if it is centered above the bed, otherwise it will look incongruous, and so a ceiling lap would be preferable.

Spotlights should be avoided as they create tension.

Illumination next to the bed can be achieved with table lamps on the nightstands or light fixtures which can be screwed onto the wall or the headboard in order to save space.

The primary criterion when choosing light fixtures for children’s bedrooms is safety.

The location of light fixtures should be carefully chosen so that a child cannot easily reach them and lamps should be selected with covered light sources or at least lamps that do not heat up excessively.

The kitchen is a workplace with high demands in lighting in order to avoid domestic accidents.

A classic pendant lamp in the middle of the room is not enough.

Sufficient localized lighting is therefore required, which can be easily obtained by using fluorescent lamps, usually under the cupboards, and at least two central ceiling lamps or fluorescent lighting for ample general illumination, which will help us see inside cabinets and the vertical surfaces of electrical appliances.

The bathroom can have as its basic light source a main light fixture on the ceiling, usually a ceiling lamp.

The light on the basin’s mirror must assist in our grooming, so it should be positioned in front of our face.

Avoid spotlights as they create shadows and particularly recessed ceiling lights because they disfigure our face in the mirror.

A series of small courtesy lights on each side or above the mirror is an excellent idea
