Creating a light concept: find out more
1. Indoor lighting for individual rooms
- Living area and hallway: 100 lm/m²
- Kitchen and bathroom: 300 lm/m²
Choose lamps with dimming function. That way, you can adapt the light conditions in any room to your current needs and wants.
Calculating basic lighting requirements:
Light colour is an important factor when purchasing a lamp or luminaire. DThe light colour determines, whether the lighting will be in the yellowish (warm) or bluish (cool) range. Cooler light colours will often appear brighter than warm ones, but may not be as cosy.
3. What does the size of the room have to do with lighting?
Key Points for Indoor Lighting
- The recommended number of luminaires varies depending on the room type and size. While the feel-good light factor for the kitchen and bathroom would be on average at around 300 lm/m², most people prefer a more gentle 100 lm/m² in the hallway or living room.
- Aside from light yield, there are some specific "light rules" to follow – more on that can be found on the pages for each room.
- Room dimensions play an important part as well: In big rooms and rooms with high ceilings, eye-catching ceiling luminaires and a variety of other light sources are always a good idea, while small rooms and those with low ceilings should have a lot less lighting installed.
