I believe that we can all agree that there is nothing worse than getting to a room where the elimination is extremely poor for instance; nothing would kill a romantic dinner faster than horrible glaring lights. Have you ever noticed how your mood changes when it's sunny outside or when it's one of those white wintry days? The very same effect can be mimicked if the elimination within your home is rather poor.
If we were to ask a certain person about what his or her ideas were about the perfect illumination within a place of work or around the house, the number and the variety of answers we would get would be very conflicting. Studies have shown that a 50-year-old person gets as much light from a 100 W bulb as an 18-year-old would get from Chinese die casting a 50 W bulb hence the reason why many old folks criticize the lighting conditions in which younger people read.
Not every single place around the house needs to be perfectly illuminated; bedrooms will do just fine with very basic lighting such as a swing-arm lamp which works very well in places where there is not much space. If you are going with a swing arm lamp and make sure that you position it within 12 inches away from your bed and make sure to pick one that has a three-way switch which allows you to increase or decrease the amount of light you get.
Places such as the kitchen need every inch of space illuminated and the same can be said about the bathroom which needs high wattage light bulbs located as close as possible to the mirror.
Other rooms around the house can use a blend of natural and artificial lightning for instance, if you have large windows that you might want to take advantage of the natural light in order to save energy. Outdoor places around your house will require light bulbs with a much higher wattage and lumen count than usual.
Other places around the house where you have furniture that is tall enough to get close to the ceiling could really use some special lighting because if there is a gap between the furniture and the ceiling, those places tend to be pretty dark and if you have strong light bulbs (with a high wattage and lumen count) then the area between your furniture and the ceiling will become really dark even when the lights are on. Make sure to use recessed lighting over cabinets which will reflect the light against the ceiling which will brighten the room without harsh glare.
Remember the proper lighting can make or break a room to take your time to deliver the research about lamps and light bulbs in order to transform your house into a more comfortable place.
