3 Best and Easy-to-Learn Tips for Choosing Lights

Whether the lighting at home is healthy or advanced enough, and whether the appearance is online or not is closely related to our lamp position and number of lamps, but the lamps we choose are indeed the most important thing that cannot be ignored.

These seem to be the problem of using lights, but in fact, it is a problem of choosing lights! Choose the light, and then use the light!

Today, I summarize some tips when choosing lamps for your reference~

1.The influence of Lights’color temperature

Color temperature is also an important reference for selecting bulbs.

Generally, the color temperature of reddish and warm is low, and the color temperature of blue and cold is high. It is recommended to use lamps with low color temperature in the home. Low color temperature lamps will make the space warm, warm and relaxing.

Therefore, the color temperature of each space in the home can refer to the following arrangements:

  • Living room Lights: The color temperature should be controlled at around 4000~5000K (neutral white), bright and warm;
  • Restaurant Lights: The color temperature should be controlled at around 3000k~4000k (warm white light), warm and soft;
  • Bedroom Lights: It is recommended that the color temperature be controlled at around 3000k (warm white light), which is soft and not dazzling;
  • Bathroom Lights: It is recommended that the light color temperature be 4000-4500K (neutral white), bright;
  • Kitchen Lights: The color temperature is controlled between 5500~6500K (positive white light), which is bright and can induce appetite at the same time.

It is recommended to turn off some lights to reduce lighting after 9 pm. This can gradually increase the concentration of melatonin in the body, so as not to delay sleep time and affect deep sleep.

It is recommended not to turn on the lights when sleeping at night, because the light will enter the retina and affect the quality of sleep.


There are two types of home glare:

The first is direct glare, the glare caused by the light of the high-brightness light source entering the human eye directly, which is the glare we perceive in the vernacular;

The second is reflective glare, the glare caused by the reflection of the light source into the human eye through the glossy surface, especially the polished metal, which is reflected in the vernacular.

The higher the position of the lamp, the less possibility of glare; as for the distance from the wall, either do a lighting simulation design, or if you buy a lamp, you need to ask the store, see the details, and neutralize it. Buy samples and try it out. The wires go back and see the lighting effects for yourself.

3.Pay attention to the following matters when purchasing

Check the logo: When buying a lamp, check the model, trademark, function and rated voltage, etc.; the rated power of the lamp should be consistent with the actual.

Check the appearance: Check whether the shell is deformed, so as to avoid the short circuit caused by the extrusion of the line; the appearance is exquisite and there is no burr.

Consider the load-bearing capacity: especially for the top of the ceiling, it is necessary to install suitable lamps. Lamps with excessive weight must be installed on the original top to ensure safe use.

Energy saving principle: energy saving light bulbs save electricity, have better illumination, and do not emit too much heat, and are suitable for multi-head lamps. When choosing lighting, it should also be noted that most of the spotlights are non-energy-saving products.

Safety principle: When replacing the bulb, it is best to wrap the tape on the luolin buckle to avoid accidental electric shock. When the light bulb is dirty and needs to be wiped, it is best to remove the light bulb and dry it.

If it is wiped with a damp cloth, wait until the bulb is free of moisture before installing it; or turn off the lamp head and wipe it again, which can prevent electric shock.
