Given the durability, safety, functionality, wide range of colors, and decorative uses, LED lights are a perfect fit for your boring and age-old living area look. Have you ever thought about why your lounge is called the living room? Because that is the place which gives your whole house a lively look, and where the life of your home really is. Thus, it is very important to keep your living rooms updated with the most updated lightning technology as well as trendy furniture. The living room is your ultimate solution for every plan. Imagine a grand party at your place. Where would you consider hosting the event and accommodating the guests? The living room. Weekend movie night with family? A living room with a wide LED TV seems perfect. A quiet space where you can relax and read a book. Of course, the living room. There is no denying the fact that your living room is the most attractive place in your house and the first thing anyone notices when entering your home is the living room. Also, did you know that lighting plays a key role in setting up the mood and ambiance of the place and how improper lightning can affect your performance and how you feel at a particular time of the day? Well, it’s true!
So here are some tips to assist you in making the most of your lounges/living area with the help of LED strip lights to brighten up space and for creating the ambiance that will seem just impeccable but before we go on to the “How” let’s look at the “What.”
What Is Color Temperature?
Just as everything else is measured and scaled, so are the magic color LED strip lights. The color temperature is referred to as the color of the lights that is measured on a Kelvin scale. Warm emissions of the light resemble natural lightning while white emissions are similar to blue or artificial lightning. The temperature variance in both the lightning types is significant. Warm lights temperature lies between 2700-3000k while cool light temperature ranges from 5500-6000k and ranges in between fall under natural lightning.
How To Set It Up?
If you want to give your living area a warm, soothing, and relaxing ambiance that is dim and not so bright, perfect for evenings than the warm yellowish light emissions are the best choice. Warm lights help in making you feel comfortable, cozy, and are good for relieving stress. So you can sit back and watch your favorite show on that couch or may even take a nap since the lights are dim, creating a peaceful environment. On the other hand, if you want to give your living room a bright look, where students can study and play games then, white lights are more effective as it helps in enhancing your alertness and attention. This is the reason why offices, classrooms, and retail spaces install bright white lights to help people with focused attention.
The Final Trick
All in all, the final trick that you can’t just miss is understanding the structure and layout of the room. Analyze the space and wall colors so that your lightning matches with each and everything that’s there in the living room. If the walls have dark painted walls then using ambient lightning will give an upbeat, bright look. If they are light-colored then LED strip lights and wall sconces can create an illusion of extra space. Also, make sure that the height of the light source is kept at a minimum of 7-8 feet above the floor which means care should be taken when putting up lamps and chandeliers. Remember, a little experimentation never hurt anybody. So feel free to be as creative as you want to be and set up your living room in the best possible way you can. Enjoy!
