The first thing that you need to keep in mind when you are planning and designing the lighting is the function of the space. Of course, it’s not enough to light up the place where we will work or simply do some tasks with strong lighting. So, in order to choose the light bodies, we need to combine the function, the mood and the harmony. The different types of lighting create different moods and can be projected as a standard for all premises. As you can guess already, as an addition to the functionality of the lighting, the lamps can create the mood in a couple of different ways.
The different types of lighting create different moods, and they cannot be designed as a standard for all types of premises. As you can guess already, as an addition to the functionality of the lighting, the lamps can create moods in a couple of different ways.
Lighting in the living room
Firstly, the main lighting can greatly impact the vibe of the room. Strong and brightly colored room creates a positive mood and rhythm. Dimmed lighting creates an intimate, romantic mood. People often make the mistake of choosing one of the extremes for lighting – it’s either too strong and you need sunglasses for it, or it’s too dim and dark, and you need to stare at the objects in order to differentiate them.
Secondly, the light bodies carry within themselves a certain mood. Some are classical, others are modern. Some are full of ornaments and details, others are minimalistic and simple. The same way that you match the furniture with a certain type of interior, is also the way that the light bodies should go together with the rest of the interior.

Thirdly, you can create an accent with lighting on different places without a certain functional meaning, in order to add a dramatic touch. For example, lighting behind a decorative plant can create a game of lights and shadows.
Choosing the right type of lighting and light bodies is a long and through process since if you design the lighting incorrectly, it can bring to serious discomfort later or simply a lack of functionality. Combining modern-day light bodies with more of classic style is possible only if the purpose is specified – achieving this exact contrast.

Advice: Remember that in order to have medium tonality for the lighting, you have to try to do it yourself and see what works best for the specific situation. For example, if you invite guests over for dinner – most likely you will want the room to be well-lit, in order for them to see what’s on their plates, while at the same time the lighting should be soft and diffuse without creating the feeling that the roast is ready for a medical surgery. Often enough, the combination of lighting and candles is a good idea.
