How should the Indoor lighting be?


It is not the right choice to use bare bulbs in the kitchen, which is an area with high temperature and humidity. Lighting systems that illuminate the counter section well and are resistant to heat should be preferred. In addition, this system should be placed in such a way that it does not cast shadows. Countertop lighting will prevent shadow formation. In addition, yellow toned LED lamps can be preferred under the counter or cabinet. In addition, pendant lighting should be preferred for the dining table.

Working area:

If you feel sleepy while working and have difficulty focusing, it may be due to the color of light you use or the angle of the light. You need to position your work area close to the window to take advantage of the daylight. Windows-facing computers can dazzle you after a while because the sun hits the table directly. The work area should be in an area where you will benefit from daylight at the maximum level and where the sun does not create glare.

For the evening, general lighting should be complemented with additional lighting. As general lighting, white ceiling lighting should be preferred, which will illuminate every place equally. If you cannot see clearly because of the light falling on your work area, you should prevent glare from light. When using a table lamp, you should pay attention to the light coming from the left side for eye health.


The first area you encounter when you enter a house is the hallway. Since the first impression is important, the lighting in this area should leave a warm and friendly effect. You can illuminate your corridors by using sconces or hidden lighting.


Bedrooms are where you start and end your day. You should choose warm and calm lighting that will not tire your eyes. The light direction should be directed to the ceiling, not the floor. You can create an aesthetic and decorative effect with the lampshades you will use.

The main lightings are used on the ceiling and yellow color is generally preferred. In addition, it should be completed with additional lighting. Humans are considered to be geometrically cylindrical. Therefore, the lights placed on both sides of the mirror do not cast shadows on our faces, they allow us to see ourselves more clearly.

Children’s room:

In baby and children’s rooms, the light should not be too intense. Since children are in the developmental age, wrong lighting systems affect them more. For this reason, you need to choose relaxing colored lights in different ways.

Multiple chandeliers help keep the sense of wonder alive. Spotlights, on the other hand, can cause distraction as they radiate from a single point. Ceiling lighting should remain on while studying.

Living room:

The living room is one of the social areas of the house where you host your guests and where people come together. The lighting system you will use is related to the furniture you prefer and the style you want to create. Varieties such as recessed spots, pendant lamps, chandeliers, suspended ceilings should be preferred according to the style of the hall. Wall sconces or floor lamps can be used to illuminate a certain area. The floor lamp should not be directly behind or behind the seat. It must be placed in a suitable corner or empty space.

It is not a very right choice to use led lighting in classical furniture. You need to make the lighting of the classical style environment with chandeliers. It is also possible to create an impressive atmosphere with lampshades.

What is the Importance of Indoor Lighting Systems?

Using the right lighting system helps you to emphasize every detail of your decoration, while also allowing you to create a warm atmosphere. The main furniture you use to complete your decoration becomes more stylish and useful with lighting systems. The important thing for us is to control these lights. Within the scope of artificial and natural lighting control, the light setting should be as follows.

  1. Directional Angle
  2. Flux
  3. Spread
  4. Color
  5. Location
  6. Source

At this stage, natural lighting should always be given priority and the greatest possible benefit should be provided both in terms of health and economy. In addition, lighting is an element that directly affects the atmosphere and perception of an interior. In particular, the positioning and the lighting source are part of the interior design. The color scale preferred in the interior affects many design elements such as the appearance of the space, the points to be emphasized, and the choice of furniture. The correct relationship between lighting and other elements that make up the interior space is established, and a more functional and impressive design can be achieved.

When designing lighting, it is also extremely important to measure how much the interior should be illuminated. At the same time, light reflections must be controlled. The angle, color and direction of the light should be well adjusted. In addition, you should be careful not to create high contrast in the interior.
