Determining the correct lighting level for a room can be a complicated business and will depend on many factors. Some people prefer brighter lights whilst others may want a more subdued effect. The level of light for different rooms will also vary – you will want brighter lighting in a kitchen for food preparation whilst you may want a more relaxed lighting effect in your sitting room and bedrooms. Many rooms perform several different functions and will require versatile lighting to cater for these tasks. It is also important to consider how much natural light the room has and how light is reflected from the surfaces in the room.
