We all know that lighting is one element in the decoration of a house, so today we will see how to light with colored lights in order to create more original and sophisticated environments. With good lighting can also expand spaces, highlight any item you like it or conceal a defect of our house. So when adding colors must be careful not to cause the opposite effect.

Types of lights

There are generally three types of lighting:

– Light general is usually coming from the ceiling. Provides rigidity and formality, so if you want to incorporate light of some color other than white, it should not be a cool color.

– Ambient light: is indirect light coming from the lamps. In general brings more warmth and being an indirect light you can apply any color to go with our decor.

– Spotlight: direct light is falling on a specific object. It can be about a picture we have on the wall, a fish tank or a special detail we want to highlight. For example, a light bluish tones highlight an aquarium and make it brighter.

What colors lit?

The colors we choose will have to be in accordance with the details of the room but not so much with the color of the walls, otherwise can cause a tiresome effect. That is, if we have a gray room with fuchsia accents in fuchsia light is better than best in gray and floor lamps in the ceiling lighting.

In the lounge we can choose colored lights that produce indirect lighting fixtures. In the bathroom and kitchen it is best to combine halogen white light with no color to saturate the view.

In the children’s room a touch of color we can put on the bedside table, but yes, if you are going to use to read is better to install another white light that serves for this purpose, leaving the other as ambient light. Here again we have a white light bulb colored filters removable depending on timing.

Finally, we recommend that you use energy saving lamps and light bulbs to not take you a scare in the electricity bill.
