2. SIZING MATTER
REALLY ? IS IT REALLY MATTER?
Yes ! Apparently when it come to the size of furnitures it all matters. Especially for lamps and lighting fixture over the table. It can make your room looks absolutely perfect or absolutely weird. Many people didn't choose the correct sizing of the lamp to match their table and as a result it makes your room looks unbalance and weird. So what is the secret to choosing the lamp size? Interior designer recommend usually choosing Lighting fixture that is shorter than the length of the table. For example if the Table is 120cm , then the lamp should be 50 - 80cm in diameter , or using 3 smaller lamps installing over the table in straight line would also make the table space and the room stands out greatly. Extra tip for you , never ever use 2 or 4 lamps. They never look great. Always stick to the 1 3 or 5 lamps if you decided to go with the small ones.
3. COLOR TEMPERATURE TO CREATE MOOD & TONE
The color of your light also play a vital role in creating room atmosphere. Choosing the wrong color can make your room looks uncomfortable instead of cozy. So what is the secret to choosing the light color? Top Interior designer recommend the use of "Warmwhite color" at 3000K color temperature is best to create a cozy and welcome atmosphere which is good for your home or hotel where you need people to feel relax in your space. Beware of the " Warmwhite 2500-2700K" As it usually give out too orange color and could easily make many people feel uncomfortable ( This is what separate a Pro from Rookie ). As for working space and the place you need to use your eyes alot either for reading or other activities. It is recommended to use Daylight Color at 6000K or 6500K . This will give out a white color and bright , your eyes could use this light for easier reading and working as a whole. So Keep in mind, cozy = warmwhite , working or bright = daylight.
