Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Tundoy, Octebcr THE LETHBRlDGE HERALD IS Lighting Must Be Planned To Provide Beauty major source of light in borne is natural aunligbt and artificial lighting must be plan- ned as a supplement during the day and as a replacement at night The two mam types of artifi- cial lighting are incandescent and fluorescent. Incandescent, the ordinary light bulb, provides the basic light source in most homes. Al- though the overall lighting re- sult is uneven, incandescent lights provide accents of brightness which give rooms more interest and vitality. Clear or white incandescent bulbs make reds and yellows appear richer and deeper in tone. Blues, greens and violets are somewhat dulled and grey- ed by this light In recent years the fluores- cen'; tube has become increas- ingly popular for home light- ing. It has an even quality best suited to areas where general illumination is required. Its tubular shape, available in dif- ferent lengths, can be used for many special purposes. Usually built-in or architec- tural lighting is planned when a bouse is being built. It can be installed in an existing bouse but is often expensive. The most common form of lighting is a ceiling fixture mounted in the centre of the room. Recessed lighting is used where a ceiling fixture would be too obtrusive. Luninous ceilines have been used for many years in com- mercial interiors and recently gained popularity in homes. Fluorescent tubes are installed above translucent panels, us- ually of plastic set in a frame- work suspended from the main ceiling. These ceilings are most often used in kitchens and bathrooms where strong general illumina- tion is required. Luminous ceil- ings make rooms appear larger. Here are general rules. Living room: A living room should have a lamp for each furniture grouping as well as special-purpose lighting for a desk, piano, etc. In an average- size living room of 250-square feet about 14x18 four or five lamps are normally used. The height of the lamp and its placement are most Important. Table lamps which are too low win concentrate the light on the table and provide insuffi- cient illumination. On medium- high (30 inches) and low (15 inches) tables, the lamp should be approximately 30 inches high iocluding the shade. Tbe bottom of the shade should be at eye level when a person is seated that is, approximate- ly 40 inches from the floor. If a table lamp is used for reading, choose a 50-100-150- watt tri-light bulb. Reading by a shaded lamp will require the 150-watt setting but the lower wattages are more suitable for atmosphere and general light- ing. Floor lamps should be placed behind and slightly to one side of the preferably behind the reader's right shoul- der. If a tri-light is used it will require a 100-200-300-watt bulb. Ceiling lights are not used as often today as in the past in living rooms. In smaller rooms of 100 to 150 square feet, ap- proximately 100 watts of ceil- ing fighting are required. In the more average-size living room of 250 square feet, 200 watts should be used.
