An LED mild bulb offers off lowest temperature and is also thought to be the most secure kind of mild source since it does not produce harmful gases nor emit radiation in the environment. There is lower environmental contamination created by LEDs. Regular bulbs are hazardous to the environment as it emits Sulfur oxide and carbon dioxide in the environment.

Room Design , Lighting and how to use the new LED Bulb

Living room design is becoming increasing difficult in recent years. With houses becoming smaller and with less rooms, we are actually not having nearly as much space as we had before; which is a problem when you are designing a room which has to fulfil so many purposes! Thankfully, there are ways around this problem. There are a huge number of design ideas and tips which cater superbly to smaller living rooms, some of which I plan to touch on in this article.

Firstly, wall colour and design is vital. The basics are that lighter colours seem further away than darker colours, and plain walls seem further than complex walls. The basics of this mean that if you are using a small space, using darker colours will make the room feel enclosed and the same applies to more ‘complex’ walls. On the other hand, if your room is very large light walls can make it feel too vast, and empty. Now, you can actually use these ways to trick the human eye to your advantage. For instance, if you have a segment of wall that comes away from the rest of it such as a fireplace then via the use of placing lighter and less complex colour onto the protruding section of wall then it will balance out and appear to be more in line with the wall, therefore making the room seem more balanced without sacrificing that precious space.
Also lighting plays a big part in the equation as this will affect the whole appearance of the space and the décor. Some carefully chosen architectural LED lighting will not only give the place a real lift but also improve the look of all the interior features and reduce your carbon footprint!!
One of the things that people seem to consistently avoid in living room design are the light bulbs. I can understand that it may seem like they aren’t that vital, but you won’t believe the number of people who ruin a brightly coloured room by using a colder white light bulb, or using a filament bulb in a modern room instead of a an energy saving bulb, which look a lot better in more modern rooms and save energy of course! The core problem is that people do not look at the light colour of the light bulb they buy and often avoid energy saving light bulbs such as LED’s which actually often give out a more consistent light as it’s not from a single point and simply look nicer. This means that you can for example fit a range of high beam angle LED GU10 lamps which will cast an even glow into the space.
My final tip of this article is to do with furniture and rugs. When it comes to these vital parts of a living room it can be often one of the most difficult things to do and often comes down to the room itself, but there are nevertheless a few thing you can do to aid the appeared size of the room. Firstly, make sure you put any furniture up against the wall to save space yet having it at an angle is a incredibly effective way to increase how large the room looks. Also, when you go for a rug make sure it goes up to, and slightly under, the furniture. Not only will this prevent it from slipping out but also make the room feel yet again larger as the edge of the rug draws your eyes out wards making the room look larger.
I daresay that is the end of this particular article. I hope these tips come in handy, so all there is to say from now is good luck!

 

Architectural Lighting and Interior Design

Lighting selection can be a hassle in interior design. A lot of people I meet seem to have the problem of simply not knowing how to acquire good light or when they do where to place which light sources and what types to use where. Hopefully I can answer all questions regarding this in the article!
Acquiring light can often be a huge problem in interior design. Sunlight is prominently considered the best typed of light due to its truly white nature not distorting any colours in a room, it’s quite frankly pleasant warmth and the pure nature of using natural light. These factors make it very desirable to use natural light in your rooms but there is the problem of acquiring it. Whilst there are modern systems that work using mirrors of glass to refract or reflect light into wanted location the only real way to get natural light is through the use of windows. This presents another problem of the fact that many homes are alongside many others therefore obstructing a lot of that precious sunlight and flats that are south-facing (or north-facing in the other hemisphere) tend to be more expensive than their counterparts. My only real tips to aid this are firstly to go for a west-facing property if at all possible, then you get the morning light and to try to use larger windows, as they not only look more stylish but let in more light. Whilst LED energy saving light bulbs are a good environmental solution there is no substitute for natural light.

It can be a lot of work but acquiring natural light is well worth it! But even so, there is no way your home can constantly be bathed in natural light. Even if you live in a glass residence when night falls you will need to use artificial light, which whilst not as good as natural light can be extremely good, especially with energy saving light bulbs and LED’s. Now, the reason I do encourage you to use natural light is mainly because artificial light firstly comes at a price but more so that it is not pure white. Even the most modern LED bulbs come in either warm white or cool white. Sometimes you will see daylight, but this is not anywhere near a natural light and is surprisingly blue so should be treated in the same way as cool white, which is a very mellow blue. Its counterpart, warm white, is a much more vibrant yellow. This means that whilst cool white excels in kitchens or baths rooms with a more white and pure colour scheme it can make any room with more rich colours feel clinical where warm white will actually enhance the colours. On the other hand, warm white light bulbs in a kitchen unless there is a rather bright colour pallet will just contrast will the white and make the room look an ugly sickly yellow.
This is all there really is to different types of light and how to use and acquire them. I do hope this is enough to help you all, and if you feel I’ve missed something please contact me and hopefully I can edit it in!
