Does every room in the house need to be so brightly illuminated? Of course not.
Ashford, Kent (PRWEB UK) 15 November 2012
As a result of several recent studies, the potential negative effects of poor lighting in the home have become more apparent. Scientific research frequently demonstrates how the wrong quality of lighting can lead to a lack of motivation and depression.
With so much confusion in the lighting marketplace, Superior Lighting is aiming to help consumers by providing advice along with a wide range of light bulbs and fittings on their website.
Robert Heritage, Marketing Manager, believes consumers could benefit from understanding how lighting affects their mood and need clear advice on how to light their homes. Whether that involves installing new light fittings or simply changing the type of light bulb they use.
“Careful planning is required to ensure the most critical rooms in your home are lit effectively,” say Robert. “We all ‘work from home’ in one way or another, whether we sit at a desk or simply cook for our families in the kitchen. With winter drawing in we all put ourselves at a greater risk of exposing ourselves to poor quality light, which can compound stress, anxiety and other health issues.”
Scientific studies, including recent research at Ohio State University, have shown that prolonged exposure to the wrong kind of light at certain times of the day can increase the risk of depression and even affect the immune system.
“We all know how frustrating it is to work in low light,” Robert Added. “The home-office and kitchen are two spaces we know consumers need particular help and advice in lighting properly.”
Flush ceiling lights can make all the difference in the home-office. Correctly planned, this creates an even and pleasant working environment. What’s more, the annoying effects of glare on the computer screen can be dramatically reduced.
In the kitchen, planning your lighting around the “magic triangle” of cooker, sink and refrigerator means you can direct the lighting to where you work most. Add some subtle “under unit” lighting to help illuminate the worktops and you’ve a recipe for success.
Does every room in the house need to be so brightly illuminated? “Of course not...” Robert continued. “ After hard day’s work or an evening at the stove we all deserve the opportunity to chill.”
Using more subtle lighting in those rooms you use to relax provides a perfect balance. Consider using different coloured bathroom ceiling lights to make your own personal haven from the stresses of every day life.
So what simple advice for consumers does Robert have? “Using the correct lighting in your home is an investment in your productivity and health. So, lighten up and be effective where you need to work then remember to switch off from the hustle of daily life.”
