Tips to enhance the house through the right lighting

For those who have an intense routine, there is nothing better than getting home and relaxing. Therefore, an interior architecture and lighting project needs to be well-thought-out for the comfort of its residents.

The appropriate light in combination with the right materials can work wonders in your home. You have a number of options available to decorate your home and brighten it up beautifully in every room. Whether you select white, brass or gold ceiling lights, floor lamps or spotlights, each type of fixture works perfectly with every decor.

Living Room

It is beneficial to separate the lighting points and sector them by specific areas with living rooms, often integrated with other spaces (home office or dining room), allowing you to harmonise each area with others. For example, the lighting in the TV area should work together with the dining table area, etc.

These spaces can be lit more softly, with side tables and prominent objects, among others, always taking care not to leave dark circulation areas.

Dining room

The main setting of family events tends to be the dining room. The ding room deserves a light that brings good luminosity to the table. In this case, decorative pendants are ideal, or spotlights built into the plaster ceiling, positioned to brighten up the table.


Working environments such as kitchens need lights with cooler white tones, as it is essential to see food preparation precisely. It is therefore advisable to design an efficient general-purpose light. It is also important to light worktops well; some solutions are spotlights or even LED strips under the cupboards.

It is common to have the kitchen integrated with other areas of the house; the lighting should match that of the other rooms, harmonising with them.


When it is time to relaxing, the bedroom is a great sanctuary. Therefore, the bedroom needs warm-coloured lamps (2700K to 3000K), as well as indirect lights to prepare the body and mind for moments of rest.

Bedside and floor lamps or wall lights beside the headboard can serve as complementary lights to the main one coming from the ceiling, allowing a moment of quality reading.



The bathroom needs bright and intense light, especially on the countertop. Avoid shadows near the mirror, as they can hinder the view of the face.

Usually, reflector lamps create a stronger shadow; it is beneficial to use lighting fixtures with diffused lights or linear light (it can even be indirect) so that the face is lit evenly. Wall sconces installed on the sides are suitable alternatives.

Home Office 

In the last two years, because of the pandemic, the number of people working directly from home has increased. The best way to light these workspaces is to use lamps with a neutral colour temperature (4000K) as it helps with focus and concentration.

In contrast, balance is also important. Therefore, combining neutral general lighting and warm colours for some support points (such as table lamps and wall lights) can stimulate creativity.
