Why Your Home Needs Lighting Design
A Well-Thought-Out Lighting Design Can Improve Your Physical and Emotional Wellbeing
Lighting affects your home's ambiance. It can also have an impact on both your physical and mental wellbeing. Automated lighting design can help you control your home's lighting with ease. Read our latest blog to learn why cohesive lighting design is vital to your Rehoboth, DE home.
Impact on Mood
A study from the Journal of Consumer Psychology found that the more intense the lighting, the more intense the subject's emotions were, whether positive or negative. Bright lights with red tints increased warm feelings, and bluer lights increased negative feelings. It is crucial to consider lighting design in your home because it has such a significant effect on your emotions. For example, using warmer lighting in your living room and bedroom will encourage relaxation, while brighter cool light will promote productivity and concentration. Lighting can enhance the purpose of the room and make it conducive to achieving your goals.
For millions of years, our ancestors spent their entire lives outside. While moving indoors has made life more comfortable, it has also deprived us of sunlight that helps to regulate our body. Tunable lighting adjusts throughout the day to mimic the color and the intensity of the sun, improving your circadian rhythm and overall wellbeing. The light should transition from warm light as the sun rises to cool, bright light into the afternoon, and back to warm light in the evening as the sun sets. You can schedule the lights in your bedroom and any other space of your home to slowly dim and turn warm as the sun sets to help prepare your body for rest. When it is time to work in your home office in the morning or afternoon, you can set your office lights to bright and cool to help you concentrate.
When you invest in good lighting design, it will be easy to adjust to the environment of your home. Instead of having to paint the walls or rearrange the furniture to change the mood of a room, you can just pull out your smartphone or use an on-wall keypad to adjust the color and intensity of the lighting in your room. Celebrate special occasions with festive lighting, or turn off all of the lights in your home with just the push of a button. Lighting design is both functional and aesthetic.
