SMD Lights in a low roof area can be critical for anywhere. In some areas due to less vertical space in the room and low roof ceilings, it becomes harder to decide which type of lights should be installed and how to install them properly in such low roof places to get uniform light throughout. The wrong choice of light can result in areas with high and low contrasts that would make it difficult for someone to see. In this article, we’ll talk about the ways that can make the lighting better in low ceiling rooms and areas.
Here are some ways to light up a room well using SMD downlights that have a low roof ceiling than 2.4 meters.
Use Multiple SMD Lights
A single light is never recommended in such areas. Always use multiple lights (more than one) at some distance in the room to give a uniform glow throughout the place. Using more lights will reduce the dark areas of the room and will also make the room seem larger and more open.
Hanging lights can also be used in different directions to cover up the whole area but as ceilings are already low hence Ceiling SMD lights in Lahore or any other city are recommended and these are easily available in any city of Pakistan. Also, take care to use ceiling SMD lights at least 3 feet away from the wall to avoid harsh shadows. This will make the ceiling appear lower.
White Ceiling Recommended
We recommend you to have a white or bright color ceiling in the room to make the room look brighter than dark colors absorb light. This will also help in enhancing the light effect in the room. The bright color absorbs less light hence this will make the room brighter by creating a better distribution throughout the room. This will make the room look similar to the one with a higher roof.
Vertical Side of SMD Lights
Think of the vertical side of the room as you already have less vertical space. As discussed earlier hanging lights are not recommended for such a room. Always use Ceiling SMD Lights like Led Downlights or LED panel lights as they don’t hang down and save space in the room, giving bright uniform light.
But if you go with the suspended LED light fixtures then use the slim light fixtures to save space. Also, keep the cables short to keep it look decent. Choose the right locations for SMD lights in the room. Choose the one where there is less probability for a person to go like above a table.
Use above Eye Level:
There is a great rule of using light above the eye level in a room to avoid direct glare in the eyes. In a low room, it is recommended to use above the eye level approximately above 1.7 meters in height.
Install Low Profile Fixtures:
Use flat or smart smd lights fixtures in the room. Usually, it is not considered that necessary to consider the lighting of a room or a house important but it is of great importance. This isn’t as casual as using the right light can change the room appearance.
Hence, the room having a low ceiling doesn’t mean dull or bad lighting but to think of more creative ways to light up the room beautifully with quality SMD lights.
