How lighting helps you wind down after a long day…

Kitchen lighting

There is nothing worse than coming home at the end of the day to a house that looks dark and lifeless. Even after stepping through the door and switching on the ceiling light we’re often greeted with dull or harsh lighting. Wouldn’t it be great if lighting could help bring a lease of life back into your house?

Let us start with the kitchen, where a great solution is to introduce task lighting. Not only can this really brighten up your kitchen but the improved illumination is a great help for any task you may need to complete. No longer do you have to strain your eyes, which are already tired from your long day, doing those mundane chores such as cooking or cleaning. Opting for plinth lighting or flexible strip lighting can also make a real difference and really enhance your designs to highlight the true beauty of your kitchen. With different lighting temperatures to match both traditional and contemporary kitchen designs, you can choose the perfect match for you. Seeing the true beauty of your kitchen every day will really help put a smile on your face and make cooking the evening meal after a long day that much less of a chore.

Music

We all know the power of music and its incredible ability to change our mood. That’s why sometimes the perfect way to wind down after a hard day is by listening to your favourite music. Thankfully, it is now easier than ever to do just that with the integrated Bluetooth speakers featured in our new SensioPod and SensioSound. If it has been a hard day, simply put on something soothing whilst you’re cooking dinner or sat with your feet up and let your mind drift away from the stress of the day.

Bathroom lighting

At the end of a long, cold day, where you are possibly soaked from the unpredictable rainy weather, there is nothing better than indulging yourself with a nice, long soak in a hot bath. To make it more relaxing candles are good option. That is if you love your eyes hurting from the constant strain of squinting from lack of light or the constant fear of knocking one into the bath with you. That’s why for some candles can be more of a nightmare than a relaxing dream. Instead, one great alternative is to use subtle mood lighting such as IP rated floor lights and flexible strip lighting .These provide the correct amount of lighting whilst keeping the mood relaxed and allowing you to wind down and soak your troubles away.

Bedroom lighting

Despite your long, hard day there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The chance to climb into bed, sink into your pillows and blankets and settle into that book you’ve been looking forward to all day. However, this is often ruined by the struggle of whether to leave the harsh ceiling light on or use the bedside lamp, both which frequently leads to the disapproval of partners who are trying to sleep. Fortunately reading lights are a great solution to this problem as they provide light exactly where you need it; no need for eye strain or the tutting and sighing of the person lying next to you. With all of that sorted you can even treat yourself to a cup of tea or hot chocolate, you deserve it after the day you’ve had!
