If you’ve recently revamped your home, you’ll already know that lamps and light fittings can cost a pretty penny. Lighting is often something of an afterthought, although it’s often the key to bringing your design scheme together. It’s important to plan lots of different sources of light for your rooms so that you can go from brightly lit to soft and relaxing at the flick of a switch. Thankfully, JYSK offers a stylish range of Scandinavian-inspired lighting options that are as affordable as they are beautiful.
Lighting in the living room doesn’t have to come from an expensive ceiling lamp. Many people make the mistake of not considering what kind of light they want their new lamp to provide before they buy it. Light shades, lamps and candles have a big influence on the mood of your living room, as they can really set the scene. The lighting elements of your room can also add to the decorative design without been too expensive. Shop our selection of contemporary pendants or ceiling lights, free-standing lamps and bedside table lamps - or add subtle spots of light with our glowing decorative LED string lights that aren’t just for Christmas. Our range of string lights and lightboxes run on batteries so they will not add unnecessary costs to your electricity bill. If you include a variety of lighting options to suit every mood, you can’t go wrong.
In most homes the bedroom is often a multi-functional room, serving not only as a room to sleep in but also as a dressing room or an office for example. Therefore, you should combine several light sources if you want to achieve the best bedroom lighting. Read on to find the best light sources depending on how you use your bedroom.
Generally speaking, you will need at least three different sources of light to achieve the best bedroom lighting:
1. GENERAL BEDROOM LIGHT
General light in the bedroom is great if you need a lot of bright. If you're working in your bedroom, putting on your make-up, then this kind of light is the best. The best way to get this type of light is ceiling light, especially if the light disperses throughout the entire room.
2. BRIGHTER LIGHT WITH GOOD COLOUR RENDITION
Colour rendition is measured by 'Ra value', which expresses how well a source of light renders natural colours. Daylight/natural light has an Ra value of 100 and provides the perfect colour rendition. Therefore, if you want optimal natural light in your bedroom then opt for white or sheer curtains to allow an element of privacy but for plenty of light to get in during the daytime.
Bright light that provides the very best colour rendition is an advantage near a wardrobe. One good solution is to install spotlights near a wardrobe. LED spotlights have a very high Ra value and are also very energy efficient.
3. WARM, CONCENTRATED LIGHT NEAR THE BED
A reading lamp by the bed should transmit warm, reddish light to reduce your body’s production of the sleep hormone melatonin. It might be a good idea to buy a special bulb with a warm, peaceful light for your bedside lamp. Concentrated light is also a good idea as the light does not spread throughout the room, therefore not disturbing your partner.
