Lighting in a studio flat

Lighting is an essential element of the general design configuration of a household. It should be carefully chosen, so as to create a feeling of comfort and cosiness. The rules for lighting a studio are the same as those for a standard household, but there are also some specifications. If the area is large, the lighting needs to be equally spread in the entire room. One option is to have built in lighting in a false ceiling. Another is to have a separate light source for every single area, placed in the middle of it, additional lighting will be necessary.

Appropriate for this purpose are bracket lamps, wall lamps, lampions and desk lamps. To avoid overcrowding the room with too many pendant light fittings, furniture with built in lighting should be bought. Apart from being practical, they also create a cosy atmosphere. If the area is scarce, there needn’t be separate lighting for every area, since the place would then look overcrowded and its general appearance wouldn’t be that good. Lighting, built in a false ceiling, or one chandelier would be enough in that case. The other zones can be lit by bracket lamps, wall lamps or lampions. A desk can be lit by portable lamps.

It is essential how natural light will be used, if the area is large, the furniture can be positioned in such a manner, that light would reach each and every area, regardless of the flat’s exposure. The same is true when a certain area, meant for relaxing or sleeping, is to be kept away from sunlight. The wall colours also help make the room appear more spacious and bright. Appropriate nuances include white, light yellow, orange and various pastel tones.

If the area is small, the same effect can be achieved by placing French windows or curtain, made of fine materials, which let the light in, as well as furniture in light tones. In order for daylight to be used for as long as possible, the work crib should be near a window. This will increase the length, at which work can be done without synthetic lighting being needed. When choosing lighting methods for a studio, we bare keep in mind that the flat should above all be arranged aesthetically and beautifully.
