- Make a plan
Measure all the rooms. Calculate the required lighting for each room:
- Calculate the volume of the room - Width x length x height = xxxm3 (Primer 4m x 4m x 2,5m)
- Multiply the resulting area xxm3 by the ceiling height and a factor of 100 (40 x 100)
- The result tells you the required total number of lm lumens of all lamps to illuminate your room. (4000lm)
- Choose a style
Your lamps can be modern, antique, traditional, industrial or completely customized. Stick to one style and be bold.
- Choose the type of lamps
Use all three types of lighting in each room: ambient, work and general.
Ambient lights conjure up a pleasant atmosphere by lighting individual objects, walls, bookshelves and maybe even decorations. Work lights provide enough light for reading, working or creating. General lamps are usually ceiling-mounted, which provide light for everyday general use.
