Lamp Selection And Lighting Design for Different Home Spaces

Why is every space in IKEA makes people feel comfortable?

Why do I always feel that I look good when I try on clothes in the fitting room of the store, but the clothes don't suit me so well when I get home?

The key is the lightings are at work. When we design lighting for the home, visibility is not the only requirement, we also hope to make the overall lighting more functional, so that the home is beautiful to 360° without dead ends.

Here is the guidance of a lamp selection and lighting design for different home spaces.

What is color temperature?

The unit of color temperature is Kelvin, referred to as K. The higher the K value, the whiter the light and the closer it is to natural light.
The color temperature of different K values is suitable for different room atmosphere. Generally speakking, working area is 5000K, there is a little yellow and white, which will not be dazzling. The leisure area is 3000K, which will not distract people's attention and create a warm atmosphere.

How to choose lamps for the living room

The color temperature of the lighting in the living room is about 4000K. In order to allow sufficient light in every corner, several lamps can be used in combination.
Ceiling lamp + Wall Sconces + Desk lamp
The ceiling lamp is responsible for the overall lighting, and the wall lamp and desk lamp are for the scene lighting. When combined together, they can produce good light atmosphere and shadow effects.
However, choosing ceiling lamps has requirements for the floor height.
Floor height ≥ 3m, chandelier and ceiling lamp can be selected.
If the floor height is less than 3m, it is recommended to choose other lamps, such as track lights.

If the floor height of your home is less than 2.7m and you want to use a chandelier, it is recommended to choose a half chandelier or a chandelier with a lampshade diameter of 38~57cm to reduce the visual ratio.
Ceiling lamp + Track spotlight + floor lamp
The track spotlight is especially suitable for the apartment type with low floor height. It does not need a suspended ceiling and directly exposes the lighting. With auxiliary lighting of floor lamps, especially the floor lamps with up and down lighting, it also has the function of extending the height of the floor.
Spotlight + floor lamp (long-arm lamp)
There are two types of spotlights, one needs to be embedded in the ceiling and sacrifices the floor height, the other is installed directly on the roof without a chandelier. The distance between spotlights and spotlights is generally 1.5-2m, but this is not a fixed distance. If you want to use it as the main light source, the distance can be closer. If it's just an auxiliary light source, it doesn't matter to make the distance far away. Spotlights also have the effect of washing the walls, brightening hanging paintings or green plants to make the space appear larger. Pair it with a floor lamp to create good mood lighting, suitable for reading on the sofa.

So what color will be the best for kitchen room?-a cool white light, which means a Kelvin rating of 3,000 to 4,500. Warm, yellower light with a lower Kelvin rating is better for a living space rather than one where food preparation and cooking take place. 
You can combine different lighting types when choosing kitchen lighting if you can make the color matches.
Track light + Cabinets LED Strip Lights +  Skirting light
The track light is responsible for the main light source, and the other lights perform their own duties, so that everywhere they go can be surrounded by lights without leaving any blindings.
