Proper lighting in your home is more than just being able to see at night. Lighting choices can have a profound impact on a room’s focal points, perceived size, and overall design and even your family’s mental health.
Lightbulbs have different color temperatures, from warm yellows to bright whites and everything in between. It’s a good idea to make sure the bulbs throughout your home fall within the same temperature scale. This will help unify the appearance of your home and make lighted spaces easier for your brain to process. It’s recommended to shoot for bulbs in the daylight range rather than colors that are too warm (yellow) or too cold (almost blue). 2,500K to 2,700K gives your home a warm, cozy atmosphere. You can also soften light by using opaque or frosted bulbs and fabric, paper, or frosted glass lamp shades so that family and guests won’t be blinded by a naked bulb.
In addition to ceiling fixtures for primary lighting, floor and table lamps can help fill a room and make it appear brighter, fuller, and cozier while adding accents of warmth. They can also help with the electricity bill if you only have one or two lamps on as opposed to main lighting.
If you’ve noticed that your mood tends to be downcast in the winter months or if you know you may be Vitamin D deficient, opt for adding a natural sunlight lamp in rooms that you frequent. These lamps can help ward off Seasonal Affective Disorder (seasonal depression) and also help your body replenish Vitamin D throughout the winter months when days are shorter.
