The Perfect lighting system for your home and its importance

Thursday, May 27th, 2021

In these modern times of designer homes lighting plays a very important part in making your home more appealing and comfortable. There was a time in the 20th century when lighting meant just choices between bulbs and tube lights. At the most if a person wanted to decorate any space in his house specially it used to be the living room and the fixture used to be a Chandelier.

The 21st century saw the advent of the latest technology in interiors lighting in the shape of the LED Lighting. LED lighting has revolutionized the residential lighting. Firstly it can save you a lot of money on the monthly electricity bills and secondly with the use of different colors and intensity of LED lights you can create special effects for various spaces in your house.

Light comes in two different formats soft and harsh and every single space in your home has its own requirement of lighting, be it harsh or soft. Lighting a home has now also become a professional challenge. With the different types of designer lights and lamp shades available in the market deciding on the lighting fixtures in your home can be a very lengthy and costly exercise. The lighting of your home is also becoming more important because it can influence the inner rhythm of your body and its well being.

Each different part of your home has its own lighting requirements. We will now take a look at the different types of living space in your home and its specific requirements.

Living Room/ Drawing Room

The most difficult to light up is the living room of a house. This is the part where a lot of activity generally takes place in a home. Socializing, watching TV, Reading even work from home in case there is no study room or office space. Each activity requires a certain type and level of lighting so it is necessary to take the activities into consideration before deciding on the lighting. The space where you can entertain and chat with your guests needs indirect and diffused lighting. The area where you relax in an armchair with your favorite book needs to have a floor lamp at the back to throw light on the material you are reading. For the times when the kids are playing the requirement is for ceiling lights. So the lighting for the living room space has to have a fusion of these three types of lighting fixtures.

Kitchen Area

The kitchen is the second most important area of a home and a major portion of a housewife’s life is spent in the kitchen. The kitchen should be divided into two different types of areas. One for the working area and one for the dining area. The working area again is divided into two areas. One the preparation area and the cooking area. For the preparation area a hidden wall unit with indirect lighting combined with interspersed direct lighting. For the cooking are there is a need for direct overhead shadow free lighting which does not offset the color of the food.

The area where the dining is going to take place requires both overhead direct lighting on the table area and some very soft lights on the walls.

The Bathroom

The bathroom is another area which needs two sources of light.  There needs to be diffused lighting in the entire bathroom and one bright light over the mirror. The light above the mirror is more important than the other light. The direct lighting source must be filtered through an opal diffuser to avoid throwing shadows on the face during the shaving process or putting on the makeup.

The Bedroom

The bedroom is another area which needs the utmost care in lighting as this is the place where the lighting should be designed to contribute to your relaxation and unwinding process.  A bright harsh overhead light will create the opposite effect.

A bedroom normally demands the lighting to be diffused and soft. A soft yellow light on the walls combined with a bright ceiling light in front of the wardrobe is the norm for lighting up a bedroom. A dimmer in the bedroom and living room is a very practical and important fixture. This allows you to change the intensity of the light in the room as per your mood.

The Common area of the house like the corridors and the entrance area need to be well lit with brighter lights.

Selling Your Home

Building a home is a very lengthy, time consuming and cost consuming exercise. IT generally starts with the search for a proper location keeping in mind your budget for the house.  Once you have decided upon the location and finalized it by purchasing your plot of land it has caused you a tremendous amount of stress. It is now that the further and real stress starts. The next step is contacting an architect and planning the construction. This again needs a long time and a number of meetings before the final decisions are taken to finalize the blueprints. Then we need a civil engineer to supervise the construction of the home. All these specialized services have become very expensive and cost a lot of money.

In these times another dream of every person who builds or buys a home is to have a luxurious home which can become the envy of all ones friends and relatives. But building such a home definitely is much more time consuming than if you are going to build just a simple home. Luckily in India there is now a choice of purchasing a readymade luxury home without going through the stress of actually building one and especially in the developing cities like Faridabad it is easier to find and buy one. The reasons for that are that the government has allowed all its plots above 100 sq. yards in area to construct 4 floors on stilted foundations. This has encouraged a lot of small builders to purchase these smaller plots and then construct four independent floors. These builders pay for the construction of the structures and then outfit these floors with all the necessary luxurious fittings to really make these homes amongst the best in any community.

What actually makes a home a luxury builder home and what does it include? Well it includes for starters a home constructed with high quality of construction material. Then it includes a modular kitchen complete with the basic electronic Gadgets like a micro oven, a cooking range, a refrigerator and other modern implements.  Generally all bedroom floors are of laminated wooden tiles which is the latest craze or of Italian Marble. The bathrooms have the latest designer sanitary ware and also designer fittings generally by Jaguar.  Fans and fancy electric fittings are also installed. Lifts are also included in these floors to increase their salability. Wooden wardrobes are included in the bedrooms and living room. Some luxury builder homes also come with fitted air conditioners. Naturally a luxury home with more and better fittings and facilities will cost more. But it does save you the hassle and stress of building all this at your own cost and time.  You just need to pick a floor within your budget and just go and start to live it up.

A luxury builder home is your smart choice for owning your own home.
