Shiny metal, radiant darkness, natural light or the peppy pastels – what fits best in your home?
LIVING room In the living room, we want to be able to mist down and cuddle us properly, but make sure to have a good reading light adjacent to the couch or the internet from your favorite armchair. Do you have a tv it is good to put light on the wall behind the tv – the sharp light from the tv in the contrast of a dark wall behind the weary eye.
BEDROOM in Addition to the mandatory reading lamp at the bed, you should think about having good lighting in accession to the wardrobes and chests of drawers so you don't have to grope in the dark when it is time to dress in during the dark mornings. Are you two sharing the bed, it can also be smart to have two vinkelbara wall lamps next to each other on the middle of the wall over the bed. Then it is easier to direct away the light from that want to sleep while the other read a few pages.
KITCHEN In the kitchen is arbetsbelysningen cen - key, but we also want to be able to dim the light slightly during the cozy dinners. Be sure to have lighting with enough power and good color rendering over the kitchen sink, and be sure that the lights do not dazzle you, either when you stand and work or sit down at the kitchen table. Also, make sure that the lamp over the kitchen table giving light to the whole table. You have a rectangular table, you may need several smaller fixtures in a row for the light to reach all the way out on the kortändarna.
HALL the Hall falls not infrequently the victims of the chaos and mess, but good lighting can help (and push!) us to keep better track of shelves and hooks. It is also nice to find an properly bright room when we get home. If you have a mirror in the hallway you don't want to have too much backlight, so the light that comes from behind you when you reflect you – then it becomes harder to see both colors and details. Look instead to any light source shines from the mirror's hold on you so you get a fair reflection!Helena Åkerberg, lighting designer proposes the autumn belysningstrender. Five questions about lamps and lighting
Hello, Helena Åkerberg, which is accredited lighting designer at ljusplaneringsföretaget Lighthouse:
is it Possible to say approximately how many light sources are needed in a room? – It is not possible to say anything precise number, but generally it is better to select multiple smaller light sources than a large and sharp. Place the lighting so that each light source receives its own task, for example, highlights a painting, a fine flower, put the candle on the window sill or light up the dining table so that you can read the newspaper. Avoid lamps that give a bright right out of the room, such as a ceiling in the middle of the ceiling.
What do you think of when you light, put at home? – Start with the places where you need extra good lighting – walls with paintings, reading corner, dining room table, kitchen counter, hall and other places in need of much light. Then there is no need for so-called general lighting. Avoid putting a lot of spot lights in the ceiling to get a uniform lighting in the room. Instead, choose to highlight the walls, even if it does not hang anything on them. Light on the walls and in the ceiling enhances the rumsligheten and may the room feel larger. Also keep in mind to choose light fixtures where the light source sits far enough in to not be seen – we want to see the light, but not be wowed by the light source.the Lamps with the radiant blackness - fr v: table Lamp Smokie, 599 kr, By Ryden.

What common mistakes should you avoid? – To start with general lighting and a bunch of spot lights in a square pattern in the ceiling, or to buy the beautiful lamp in the shop fixed it does not give a proper light. Today, the risk is also great that you get an LED fixture with white light. In the home and outdoors, must the light source be on the 2 700 k. Do not go on the manufacturers ' word that the ”warm white” or similar, but make sure that the value really is 2 700 k. It is also easy that you get a bulb where you can see directly into the light source, and be dazzled. I recommend to take the help of an independent ljusarkitekt instead of the manufacturers ' ljusplanerare, even if it costs a little more.
How are you supposed to know what kind of light source is best? – today it is almost exclusively LED. Be sure to try the light source if you are unsure, borrow and test. All LED lamps can not be dim, which is a requirement for a good lighting. You can say that the basic rule is that the light source should have 2 700 k, a cri value above 90 and macadam in less than 3. It may sound awkward for most, therefore, it can be good to take the help of a ljusarkitekt.
there Are some clear belysningstrender as you notice right now? – the Colors on the fittings, go for gold, copper, and brass, and we see a lot of round shapes, both as balls, but also large, glorialiknande circles. We also see a change in attitude to the light in the home – sooner set you might a few spits in the middle of the room and hung a ceiling in the ceiling, and then it was clear. Luckily those days are gone! Today, planning is often the light at an earlier stage, already in bygglovsärendet we are, and influences, integrates, and builds for the lighting.Natural light - fr v: the Lampshade of woven palm leaves, about 1200 sek, Tine K home.
