Building 101: Light Basics

Learn the basics of choosing the right lighting color and the different kinds of artificial lighting

Shares

In choosing the right lighting color (daylight and warm white are the common bulb coloring types in the market), consider the purpose of the room. You'd know if you've picked the ideal one if it also enhances the vibe of the space. 

Use daylight for kitchens and general purpose areas, and warm white for mood setting in living rooms and bedrooms. Maximize natural light inside your home as well. You'll save up on electricity and be an eco warrior at the same time.

LED Bulbs and Lamps are, by far, the most efficient and flexible (in terms of shifting into different colors) types of artificial lighting. Its burning hours reach up to three times that of regular fluorescent lamps, and can sometimes last you a lifetime.

Consider these types of lights as an investment as they're more expensive than your usual buys.
