Lighting in the living room, help me understand what lamps are needed for comfortable lighting
Hello! Who understands consecration, or knows. Tell me, please! Room 16kv2. I bought an LED chandelier for 5 shades. I just can’t understand which bulbs are better to put? I had 5 lamps of 9 watts each (which equals 80 watts of ordinary incandescent lamps), I screwed them in to try, it turned out terribly light, right over the top. The light is neutral white. How many watts to buy light bulbs for comfortable lighting. The room is used as a living room. So that there would be enough lighting to read and draw. In general, there was a lighted room, but comfortable. Or is it better to buy a warm light? Or neutral white? And how many watts should one light bulb be? What do you have, who has such an area, and are you comfortable? What can you advise?
An office, a nursery and a bathroom are considered rooms with an average level of light, therefore their lighting rate is 15-18 W per square meter. The living room, on the contrary, requires the brightest lighting, therefore, on average, its illumination rate is 20 watts per square meter. Thus, in order to estimate the required total power of all lighting sources in a room, it is enough to multiply its area (in square meters) by the above standards. Thus, 40 W is enough. The light should be warm, it does not tire the eyes. I have your white one above the sink in the kitchen, where you need to see small objects and turn it on as needed, otherwise your eyes get tired right away
I have regular bulbs. I do not digest white light. a kilowatt burns at 35 meters.
