A Guide To Lighting
When it comes to lighting in the home, it can be tricky to know where to start. Ferm LIVING has come together with lighting expert and designer Marianne Tuxen to compile a lighting guide with tips on how you can better illuminate your home and make it a calm and wonderful space.
1. IDENTIFY YOUR STYLE
The first thing that Marianne Tuxen does when she's working with a client is to pinpoint their specific style - do they prefer modern, paired down interiors, or is there more of an artsy, whimsical atmosphere?"
2. FOCUS ON THE SPACE
Once your space is defined by general lighting, it's time to introduce lamps with more concentrated brightness: "How you use the room is integral to how it needs to be lit. Think about where you need task lighting - it's different for different rooms," Marianne explains.
3. VARIATION IS KEY
One of the keys to comfortable lighting in the home is variation. “The light in a room should never be completely even – to create an inviting, cosy atmosphere, you need to work in levels. This applies to both brightness and placing. When placing your lamps, try to situate them at different heights, so that the light adds a sense of depth to your perception of the space”.
MARIANNE'S TOP TIPS
Lumen over Watts
Usually, we just look at the number of watts when buying a lightbulb. With modern and energy efficient LED bulbs, the brightness can vary from bulb to bulb, even if they have the same wattage. Therefore, try checking up on the lumen (lm) of the bulb - the higher the lumen, the brighter the light.
Make it Cosy
Undoubtedly, the most important thing about lighting up your home is that you create a pleasant, comfortable space that you want to spend your time in. That means different things in different rooms - your office and kitchen bench should have concentrated task lighting that's brighter than the general lighting, whereas the bedroom does best with soft lighting concentrated around the headboard.
