by Natasha Manual Digital Marketing Specialist

Flats in Cochin receive ample sunlight. This in combination with artificial lights transforms the interior and exterior of a flat.

Natural light

Natural light is the most heart-warming and welcoming sort of light. Lots of windows and, French doors allow sunlight into the room making it more cheerful and positive. A large skylight in the living room will light up the room during the day time. Skylight or glass block window above the shower or bathing area allows sunshine. A window on the stair landings, laundry rooms, bathrooms, storerooms can transform an otherwise dark area into a well-lit one.

Artificial light

Artificial lighting is done by light bulbs, the most common being incandescent lamps. Fluorescent bulbs are used in commercial spaces as they use minimal electricity and lasts longer than incandescent lamps. Halogen lamps are yet another option. They emit bright white light and have a longer life than incandescent lamps. On the flip side, halogen lights are a fire hazard as they generate intense heat. LED lights are gaining popularity in lighting solutions as they last longer and consume minimal electricity. Light from LED lamps stay focused on an area and do not disperse or spread.

Lighting options

General guidelines for lighting tips for luxury flats in Ernakulam are suggested below.

Living rooms

Soft lighting is preferable for living rooms as it enhances the furnishings and provides a rich ambiance. Low voltage chandeliers, pendant lamps, recessed lights are options available. Table lamps, floor lamps, and halogen uplight lamps can be added on to create a warm atmosphere. Spotlights and strip lights can be used to highlight paintings and wall hangings.

Dining Area

A ceiling or wall fixture illuminates the whole room. A chandelier or light suspended above the dining table sheds light while having meals. A dimmer allows adjustment of the brightness when the table is used for other purposes like sewing or reading.

Bedrooms

Overhead light fixtures, those which enhance the room’s style, would be a wise choice. Besides this, bedside lamps or swing arm lamps for night time reading can be fixed.

Kitchens

A ceiling fixture with high wattage will light every square inch of the kitchen floor. Adequate lights are to be installed above the cooking area and sink. Strip lights mounted below the cabinets illuminate the workspaces below.

Bathrooms

Bathrooms need bright high wattage lighting fixed on the ceiling which will light the entire area. Extra lights can be fixed on top of mirrors and inside cabinets. Waterproof lights in the shower area would be an ideal option.
