If you want to make your house look like it was lit by one of those multi-award-winning European designers, no doubt you’re thinking of taking a look around Ikea for their lamps. But well, to buy a lamp or any design object from the Swedish brand, you have to have a loose budget. And to achieve the same effect, didn’t it came to your mind to take a walk around Aldi? I know, not everyone knows that this chain retailer sells, from time to time, some other interesting find.
In the Aldi Finds section we have found a fascinating orb lamp from the exclusive Aldi brand, Belavi, which looks like it was taken from one of the most elegant designer furniture stores in Los Angeles or Madison Avenue in New York.
Aldi Finds: The exclusive LED lamp to bring colors to your home
The Belavi color-changing LED orb lamp is ready to transform your living room, bedroom, or even your patio (yes, it’s also suitable for outdoor use) into your haven of peace because it can change colors just by pushing one button. For only $19.99, you can bring home this incredible piece of design that can project 13 different ambient colors.
Not only that, but you can also control multiple orbs because it comes with a remote control: choose among 3 levels of brightness, to set the environment you desire. No more boring or lifeless places: your house is about to become a colorful yet welcoming space.
Designing your house’s illumination, for a warm and inviting environment
Designing the lighting in your home plays a vital role in creating a warm and cozy ambiance. Start with ambient lighting, such as ceiling fixtures or recessed lights, to provide overall brightness. Avoid exposed light bulbs that face towards the people, because they are not comfortable to their eyes, and instead go for indirect light spots.
Supplement this with task lighting for specific activities like reading or cooking, using adjustable lamps or under-cabinet lights. Additionally, incorporate accent lighting to highlight architectural features or artwork, using wall sconces or track lighting.
Opt for warm white or soft white bulbs, which emit a cozy glow: you don’t want to atract boats and ships to your lighthouse-looking living room, right? Don’t use those hospital-like cold white or daylight bulbs, which can feel harsh.
Dimmer switches are also a good idea to adjust the intensity of the lighting as per your needs and mood, allowing you to create a more intimate atmosphere. Specific colors in some places could also make a great lightning, and you can use the Belavi LED orbs for that.
Combine electric lights with natural light: Maximize the use of windows and skylights to bring in daylight, which not only enhances the overall ambiance but also has numerous health benefits. Consider window treatments that allow control over the amount of natural light entering the room, such as sheer curtains or blinds.
