Emphasize light and ignore light

When thinking of installing a lamp, many people will first think of the style, style, size, function and price of the lamp, which is essentially a container of light. So what you really need is not a lamp, but a light. How to understand the lighting collocation?

From the functional understanding, the principle of lighting preparation can be divided into two parts: main lighting and accent lighting from the perspective of different light sources. The main lighting is responsible for large spaces and accent lighting. For example, when reading a book, the eyes need brighter light. It is easy to see clearly. This kind of lighting in a small area is called accent lighting. It is generally used in the reading area of ​​the living room or study, the dressing table in the bedroom, the flow table in the kitchen, etc. Therefore, we need a reasonable matching of lighting.

Only pay attention to the main light, the light source in the house will appear very monotonous. After design and matching lighting, the senses will be richer. As a metaphor, the former is like Coke, which is simple and direct; the latter is a red wine with a delicate taste and full of changes.

Because of different functions and needs, there will be completely different decoration styles. For example, the lighting atmosphere in the company is completely different from that of the cafe. At present, except for individual high-end co-working spaces, most of the office environments are sexual Cool fluorescent lamps. It’s different in a coffee shop. Its lighting is warm and quiet, so you can relax without knowing it. Many young people love to work in a coffee shop, and most of them like the atmosphere there, and the lighting that creates the atmosphere can be said to be It’s a must.

Some decorations with a sense of design tend to pay more attention to lighting collocation. Good lighting not only needs to meet the needs of functions and scenes, but also has the ability to create an atmosphere. When you go to other people’s homes as a guest, you can also see the personality, preferences and living habits of the other person from the lighting.

Focus on bulbs and ignore color temperature

When choosing light bulbs, we generally consider common latitudes such as brand wattage, wattage, type, and quality, especially users who are completely ignorant of lighting, and rarely think of color temperature. What is color temperature?

In simple terms, color temperature can quantify the color change of the light source that the human eye can perceive, and describe the feeling of warmth and coldness brought by the light to the mind. The lower the color temperature, the warmer the light, and the higher the color temperature, the cooler the light.

For example, the color temperature of bulbs commonly used in houses is about 3000K, while the color temperature of bulbs commonly used in hospitals is about 6000K, and K is the unit of color temperature.

Some businesses use warm yellow light and cool white light to describe the color temperature. In fact, this is inaccurate. It is recommended to look at the packaging box when buying a light bulb. The color temperature K value is below 3300, which is a low color temperature and will give people Warm feeling, the medium color temperature K value is between 3300-5000, generally most of the above 3500 are used in commercial spaces; and the K value above 5000 is a high color temperature, which will give people a cool feeling.

The color temperature value is a reference, and there is no rule that the color temperature of a certain space must be within which range. In lighting design, the color temperature of lamps is generally determined according to various factors such as environment, location and space atmosphere. Take, for example, wall color. White walls are more reflective, and even if the room is the same size, the amount and color temperature of light required is different from a dark room.
