Light quality and colour can dramatically change the appearance of a room so it is important to get this right. You wouldn't, for example, want bright white lighting in a bedroom, instead a soft warm white ambiance would be more suitable. When choosing a light bulb you first need to decide which colour temperature you require. Colour temperature is a measure of how warm or cool a colour appears. It is measured in Kelvin; the standard measurement for lighting output in addition to lumen output. Colour temperature is derived from the colour of light produced when carbon is heated. The Kelvin Scale ranges from extra warm white at 2,700k giving a warm yellow glow, to white at 3,500k, cool white at 4,000k and daylight colour at 6,500k which produces a white blue colour. LED, CFL and halogen energy savers are all available in a range of colour. Complaints have been made in the past about LED giving off a cool blue light but with the improvement in technology, as long as you buy a good quality LED this should not be a problem. It is then important to look at the colour rendering index (CRI) which shows to what extent the light will make an object appear its true colour. An incandescent bulb is rated at 100% because its light contains a full spectrum of colour. CFLs do not contain the full colour spectrum but a good quality triphosphor fluorescent rated between 80-90% will be sufficient for everyday use. Higher rated CFLs can be obtained but are usually only used by designers or artists and are less efficient. It is advisable not to buy a light bulb which scores below 80% on the CRI scale. Energy saving light bulbs have received a bad press at times because of the light they produce, but this has tended to be because many poor grade CFLs either brought from supermarkets or given out for free by energy companies have come onto the market.
Room lighting must capture and enhance the character of the person who lives in the room, as well as provide proper illumination for everyday needs. That's why you'd better think twice about mission of each room of your house and how natural light can outline it. Also take into account that the daylight changes throughout the year. How to maximize natural light? There are several ways to do it: Mirrors can reflect and multiply the natural light - try to hang them in front of your windows. Ooften there can be too much sunlight in your room - use voile or muslin to defuse it. Hot sunlight can be stopped by perforated roller blind. Your windows are small and you don't get enough sunlight? Your inner door can serve as a window - think of a glass paneled door. Don't have place where to hang an extra mirror? Any surface of your furniture can reflect sunlight. Just make the right choice. What is outside your house? Maybe it's a big old tree that blocks all the natural lights? You can always try to trim it.
To Make Your House Safer. Exterior home lighting will enable your family and visitors to move more safely around the garden, avoiding obstacles and hazards that are clearly visible during the day. For example, creating a lighted pathway will help to prevent unfortunate accidents such as tripping over objects in the dark. To Create an Attractive and Relaxing Outdoor Environment. Lighting the garden at night not only creates light and shadows but also a real sense of mystery and drama. It can totally transform the outdoor space when daylight fades and night begins.
