Lighting in the home library


Home library lighting design

The library is a place, which requires a good choice of lighting, since working with books demands good vision. Before deciding on the type and placement of the pendant light fittings, the area of the place, as well as the colour scheme and the windows’ size and number, should be taken into consideration. Light tones are most suitable, since they make the room appear spacious.

The windows shouldn’t be too big and shouldn’t have hard curtains, which stop the light from entering the room. French windows are a good decision for this type of room. The synthetic lighting shouldn’t be too bright. There should be more than one lighting source, so that some zones wouldn’t be gloomy, as this could hinder the task carried out there. It’s a good idea to spread all the lighting equally on the ceiling. Wall lamps, which create a soothing atmosphere, are also appropriate.
