First and most importantly, open your blinds, draw the curtains, and let the natural light in! Natural light is better for your health than artificial light. Natural light is also much brighter. No matter how good the lighting product is-nothing can compete with the sun. Yes, you will still have to get lighting fixtures for the nighttime, but you can save a lot of money on electricity if you keep artificial lights off when they are not needed. If you‘re living room is like many other homes, you may not have a lot of potential for natural light even with the blinds open. In these cases, make sure you invest in some quality lighting products that will brighten your room during both the day and night.
It‘s particularly important to layer the lighting in a living room. Balance ambient, task, and accent lighting throughout the room. This way, all areas of the room are receiving the kind of light they need. Ambient lights will provide an overall main light for the room. Task lights illuminate a specific area such as a desk or a bookcase. Accent lights illuminate key elements of the room such as a beautiful architectural design or a work of art. Try to avoid using recessed downlights as your only form of lighting. Instead of downlights, use lights that will bounce off the ceiling, and therefore provide your space with better ambient lighting.
Each room in your house has a specific function to perform. You spend a certain amount of time in each area during the course of every day. First and foremost each particular room has to perform a function and often will help you to "get ready" as you prepare for your day. For example, the bathroom can help us to rejuvenate ourselves and help us to take care of particular needs. The kitchen can be a place where we prepare those all-important meals, have some family meetings and get ready to head out the door. Of course the bedroom is a place that we go for our all-important rest and relaxation. The design and make-up of each individual room can certainly make a difference, helping us to enjoy the specific amount of time that we spend therein.
In Korea a good-sized room would be 8‘ x 10‘. In Japan a living room is rarely more than 12‘ square, but there they can remove the sliding partitions and add the other room which is usually 9‘ x 12‘, making the total size of the principal room 12‘ x 21‘. The kitchen is only 6‘ x 9‘. The bathroom is usually 6‘ square. This makes the average Japan¬ese house about 500 square feet in area, compared with perhaps slightly over 1000 square feet for Americans.
