Types of Decorative Lighting


As your professional decorative lighting manufacturer, K&Y Lighting will introduce you to some main home decorative lighting.

Dining Room Lighting/Restaurant Lighting:

A restaurant is a place for family gatherings. Ceiling lights or dining room pendant lights are usually used.

Of course, the focus of family restaurant lighting is the table. Generally, vertical chandeliers can be used for lighting. In order to achieve this effect, the chandelier should not be installed too high but should be installed at the height of the line of sight of the meal.

For rectangular dining tables, please install two chandeliers or oval chandeliers. Chandeliers should have dimming and lifting functions so that they can also be used for other tasks.

Chinese cuisine pays attention to color, aroma, taste, and shape, and usually requires bright lighting and warm colors. When enjoying Western food, if the light is slightly darker and softer, you can create a romantic atmosphere.

Generally, a ceiling lamp, a pendant lamp, or a chandelier can be installed in the center of the room as the main light, the lighting style would match your house style.

If the back panel of the sofa is hung with banners, calligraphy, and painting, two wall lamps of a suitable size can be installed on both sides of the calligraphy and painting, and a floor lamp can be placed beside the sofa. Such a lighting arrangement is stable and generous, and the light source can be selected according to different needs.

Bedroom Lighting:

The starting point of bedroom lighting is the main light source based on overall lighting, plus decorative lighting and accent lighting to create a space atmosphere.

Generally, we can use a ceiling lamp as the main light source and set up wall lamps, small spotlights or luminous lamp troughs, downlights, etc. as decorative or accent lighting to reduce the contrast of indoor lighting.

If we have the habit of reading in bed, it is recommended to place a dimmable table lamp directly at the head of the bed, and install energy-saving lamps or cold-light halogen lamps in the lamps to avoid eye fatigue.

The bedroom is a room for rest and sleep and requires better privacy. The light needs to be soft and there should be no glare so that people can easily fall asleep.

The shape and style of the lamp should not be too gorgeous. It is best to be elegant and modern to create a quiet and comfortable environment for people to read.
