4 / Why is it important to choose a good light?
Lights, essential elements for your interior, do not have the sole function of lighting it. They are decorative objects in their own right, and can transform a room by setting the tone. This is why it is important to choose a luminaire and lighting adapted to your needs, but also to your desires from an aesthetic point of view. Thanks to the lighting in your interior, you can create different atmospheres. If you want bright light, especially in your dining room or bathroom, it is best to go with LED or halogen bulbs. For a softer and warmer lighting, for a bedroom or the living room for example, choose a low consumption bulb that gives a warm, almost yellow light.

They can come in different shapes, have a shade or not, and are mostly found in living rooms, by the corner of the sofa. Floor lamps give a warm aspect to the room. Table lamps: Table lamps are ideal for desks, bedside tables, and sideboards. The variety of models is so vast that the table lamps adapt to any style of decoration.
