Ambient lighting creates the foundation for accent and task lighting, and can be generated cost-effectively using LED light bulbs. You may think that a single light fixture hanging overhead can provide enough ambient lighting for an entire room, but making use of different sources does provide more flexibility and, in some cases, better light saturation, without the glare of course. LightRabbit offers a wide selection of LED lights to create the perfect ambience in any room of your home. Here are our expert tips on creating the perfect ambience with minimal power usage.

 

Use Surfaces To Generate Indirect Lighting

Recessed LED lights  can generate effective ambient lighting on your house’s floors, walls or ceiling. These are ideal for use around appliances, in the kitchen or in your living areas. You can monopolise on the light provided by recessed or ceiling lights by using light coloured paint, which will reflect it. To minimise glare, it is advisable to use matte or non-glossy paints.

LightRabbit recommends the LightWell 5W Integrated LED Downlight, with a 120° beam angle and 450 lumens of light output, and also the LightWell 6 Watt Frosted Ceiling Light with a 390 lumens output to achieve effective indirect lighting.

Bathe Your Walls In LED Light

Wall washing is one way to generate effective ambient lighting with a soft illumination. To do this you should place the lights, an even distance apart from one another, along the base of your walls, pointing upwards. This ensures the wall is bathed evenly in light. Again, lighter paint colours will enhance ambient lighting when you wash your walls.

LightRabbit altnernatively suggests installing GU10 LED bulbs as direct replacements for your existing GU10 halogen bulbs. These LED bulbs are available in both cool and warm white colour temperatures and will complement any wall or ceiling colour in your home. If you are planning on installing them in a row, you can also look forward to a 90% energy saving and a lifespan of up to 30 years.
