Let’s talk about the lighting

The lighting you use in the space of the living room or living room will depend a lot on what mood you want to give it and what you want to use it for. It will also give you a touch of comfort and tranquility for your eyes in case it is a space to read. Too little or too much lighting is not perfect. For this I decided on this occasion to help you with this giving you the types of lighting for a room.

 

 

 

There are two types of lighting for a room or living room: the artificial and the natural. The two go hand in hand; natural lighting is the one that enters through the doors or windows during the day, and artificial lighting is provided by lamps or floodlights.

Artificial lighting:

This type of lighting can vary in quality and quantity. It will depend a lot on the type of light you want to use. Instead of placing a single lamp right in the center of the ceiling of the room, you can let yourself be carried by your imagination and use lamps in different places with many shades. This way you will have an attractive atmosphere and the room will look modern.

 

 

 

Natural lighting:

This type of lighting in a room can be achieved with large windows, skylights and more. If you want to adjust the amount of natural light then you can place curtains, but these do not have to be dark colors because otherwise it will completely block the passage of light into the space. If you have a computer or television in this room, you should place them away from the natural light since, otherwise, it can be a bit difficult to see the screen well.

      

 

Likewise the natural light will allow you to save electricity and will create a more natural and at the same time warm environment, so you should make the most of the hours of sunshine both in the summer and winter season. In addition, your sofas will always look great with both natural and artificial lighting

Always remember that adequate lighting is necessary for any stay in the house, and is very important for several reasons. Decide the best lighting but taking into account the activities you do daily in your beautiful room or living room.

Something you need to know about modern sofas

 

Modern sofas are quite different of the ones our parents were used to. Today sofas are better and that is caused to some changes in building, the material used and the care they need

 

 

Building:
Modern sofas are constructed from a wooden frame, which is made together with blocks, glue and screws. Traditionally, the safety springs are with a strap base, but some sofas incorporate spirals and springs attached to metal bands, which extend from the front to the back of the frame. In a spring design, the springs are S-shaped or serpentine springs are used.

 

 

 

Cloth:
The fabric is the most important thing about the structure of a sofa. Texture and stamped fabrics are more tolerant than smooth, you should avoid loose fabrics. By law, all upholstered furniture must be fireproof; A square label with a green border indicates that it is resistant to a lit cigarette and a lit match; A triangular oscillation tag with a red edge shows that the cover is not as sturdy but has a properly fire resistant underlay below.

Covers of good quality:
It is a matter of taste and the practicality of what type of coverage to choose for your couch, the first priority must be quality. Keep in mind that even fabrics of the same structure, may have different qualities depending on their producer. Manufacturers of high level, are testing all the fabrics in their collection. Each material has to pass the Martindale test, which determines how each of them is resistant to wear. The greater the result of this test (larger number), the more resistant and the longer the fabric.

 

 

 

Care and Cleaning:
Depending on what the structure of the fabric is. Can be dry-cleaned or machine. It is certainly an absolute advantage, however, keep in mind that some stains (food, liquid or other things depending on their chemical structure) can be very difficult or even impossible to remove. It does not depend on the quality of the fabric, as it is usually influenced by the type of stain. Therefore, if you have small children, you should choose dark fabrics or natural leather that will be much easier to clean. Remember, if you have your sofa dirty or spilled something on it, try to clean or wash it immediately, no matter what type of cover your sofa has. Otherwise the stains become larger and you will not be able to remove them. Each fabric, depending on the structure (linen, cotton, viscose or synthetic) has its own cleaning recommendation.
