Forget those Fat Lamps

I’ve never liked a fluorescent lamp. I know they are more economical and environmentally friendly, and they are part of an important process for the world. But, excuse me, I always find myself ugly, coarse visually. And beauty is fundamental. But it was not only the lamp’s fault, the lamps still frighten me today.

Does it have to be so weird?

Here came the cheap, horrifying bulbs, looking like a white poop, not to say sex shop object (children, do not try this at home!).

Tell the truth…

I confess that I have always been torn between ecological awareness and the mental block of having something so ugly at home. And the light always super white, leaving everything flat and distorting colors. It was the slowness to start lighting up. Anyway, you understood: I never liked it. And you can get more from stylishtacoma.

But it is possible to use fluorescent lamps in a beautiful way.

  1. Starting with the luminaires, nowadays we have numerous options to make the ceiling more “clean”
  2. A cheaper alternative is to make a tear in the plaster lining and hide the fluorescent lamps behind a 5cm
  3. Inverted and illuminated shallows on one or two sides also make a beautiful effect

But a very important factor for lighting is the type and color of the lamp. The white lights do not reproduce the colors well and end up distorting and flattening everything. Look for a high IRC (Color Reproduction Index), usually found in yellow or warm white lamps.

  1. Notice how the white light leaves everything half cold and artificial

To evaluate the real difference, another day I asked the electrician to put a white tubular lamp and a yellow T5 side by side, look at the result:

The one on the left is T5 yellow and the one on the right is the traditional white tubular.In addition to being much finer and more compact, the T5 emits a much brighter and more pleasant light

The installation of T5 lamps requires compatible plugs and reactors, but they are worth the investment.Because they are more compact, their luminaires can be more discreet and the recess of the ceiling decreases when embedded in a plaster lining.As your light is stronger and brighter, you will need fewer light bulbs for the same amount of light, and save up to 50% of electricity.

  1. Using the correct light bulb, we have a well lit and warm environment and save energy

Look what a nice text on Folha, from my dear teacher Guto Requena: The Future of Enlightenment
