Designing a New Home Lighting Style

At some point of your life, you’ll come across with the decision of changing the lighting style of your home. You will realize that a small change in your house would bring better surroundings and something you can get busy with. Although changing to a new home lighting style would require certain changes in the house particularly in the ceiling, several owners still push through it since they want something new. Before doing this, you need to have a good plan and a good design for your new lighting style. Here are few factors to be considered in designing:

Size of the room

The size of the room is one of the valuable and significant factors to be considered in designing a new home lighting style. You should always take into account how big or small the room is, the distance from ceiling to floor, and the entire volume of the room. In this way, you can pick a new lighting style that suits the room perfectly. Say for example a small room, in designing a now lighting style, you must not pick large bulbs or lighting sources for a very small room. On the other hand, you can’t have small illuminating capacity bulbs for a huge room. However, this may vary accordingly with the preference of the owner. They may pick small bulbs for a huge room but will have multiple numbers of the bulbs to be installed.

Desired mood or ambiance

The mood or ambiance of the room is also a point of consideration.  Take for example a living room where the family gathers most of the time. Living rooms should appear as gloomy to look at and the light source should match the color and content of the living room. Once furniture like jars made of porcelain is exposed to bright lights, it reflects too much light that will make the living room very bright, thus, it will not anymore be comfortable and soothing to sit or lay for a while. Furthermore, in theaters and movie rooms, you need to have low lumen lighting so that the light won’t overpower the brightness of the television screen.


Before designing a new lighting style, the owner or the interior designer needs to inspect the space first. In this way, the plan would go accordingly and will suit the preferences of the client. Inspecting is one of the first steps in designing and it determines the success and efficiency of the plan beforehand. In the said inspection, the examiner should properly pinpoint lighting weaknesses and strengths of the room to aid it during designing.


The last but not the least factors are the cost of the implementation of the design. Many owners would prefer a cost efficient lighting so that they can save enough money for other matters. That is why they will pick the best architect or interior designer to provide them with a new lighting style that will require less cost for materials and less time for installation.
