Lighting for Reading

See our tips for illuminating the space where you do your reading

Creating reading corners at home is a great idea for decoration. But to be perfect you have to have adequate lighting, right? Therefore, you can not miss a lampshade or a lamp. To help you make the best choice I have prepared some tips, look!

Ideal Illumination

The light for reading can not be too strong or too weak. If she is too weak, you will have to force the vision to be able to see and this will give you a feeling of tiredness. Now if the light is too strong, you will not be able to focus on reading and this will also tire your eyes and take away your will to read. So the ideal is that the lighting is medium but direct. In this case, a floor lamp, a table lamp or a lamp are great lighting  options.

In the rooms, if you do not have space for a nightstand or side tables, you can use washers on the wall behind the bed, it’s beautiful! And even if the light is not directed, the effect produced will leave the perfect illumination for reading.

One of the lighting options, the  decorative floor lamp is ideal for reading. A good tip is to match her with an armchair. It will be a charm! The table lamps also have the same function, but need to stay on top of a desk or side table sofa to reach the height you want. The lamps are perfect for bedside tables, side tables, benches and even for office desks.

Guys, one important tip is that you always have to leave the  lamp, about 50 cm from the book. So, wherever you choose, choose adjustable and hinged luminaires, because that way you decide where they stand.

Ideal Reading Lamp

When choosing bulbs, look for bulbs that do not heat up. If they are too hot, you will not be able to read for long. So the incandescent and the halogen are not good for reading. LEDs and fluorescents are perfect, because they heat much less, last longer and are even more economical. Ah, another tip is to choose the yellowish colored lamps, because they are more comfortable for our vision, okay?

Now that you know that good lighting helps at the time of reading, choose the right  lamp for you!
