The elderly generally have poor eyesight and work more frequently at night, so the indoor light source should be brighter. Some lights should be arranged as much as possible in the corridor, toilet and kitchen, stairs, bedside and so on. How to choose the lamps in the old people's room? The light color temperature of the main light in the elderly's room suggests that we choose warm light lighting, because warm light can give the elderly a peaceful and warm feeling.
Precautions for lighting design of old people's room
now most young people have to live with their parents and even grandparents, so the lighting of the rooms where the elderly live should be reasonably arranged. The rooms for the elderly are generally sunny rooms, which can increase the sense of indoor space and make the elderly feel more comfortable. As far as lighting is concerned, there are mainly two kinds of lights, mainly strong light and supplemented by weak light.
as the elderly generally do not like direct strong light, it is best not to use downlights, spotlights and other lamps that directly stimulate the retina. Generally, diffuse light sources or desk lamps that can't see bulbs are selected. However, the lighting of the elderly room should not be too dark. It should be a little softer, and light sources need to be added in some parts. Because the elderly generally like to get up at night, it is best to make the switch control closer to the head of the bed to facilitate the operation of the elderly.
in addition, floor lamps can be installed in the corridor between the bedroom and the bathroom to facilitate lighting at night. The lighting switch of the toilet should also be installed outside the door for easy use.
the elderly generally have poor eyesight and often get up at night. Therefore, the indoor light source should be brighter. Some lights should be arranged as much as possible in the corridor, toilet and kitchen, stairs, bedside and other places, but the light source must not be too complex. Do not install colored lights. Lights with strong light and dark contrast or too bright colors are not suitable. Avoid using reflective materials indoors. The overall color should not be too dark. Moreover, the requirements of the elderly for illumination are 2-3 times higher than those of the young. Pay attention to setting local lighting. For the elderly, the convenience of life is the most important, so there should be a light source switch at the entrance of the room; In addition, places that are easy to ignore include: above the kitchen console and pool, above the toilet vanity mirror and sink, etc.
three suggestions for improving the lighting comfort of elderly homes
there are many ways to improve the lighting comfort of the old people's house. Today we mainly talk about some simple methods. So, how to design the lighting of the elderly room? How to improve the lighting comfort of the elderly room? Now I'll talk to you about three small suggestions to improve the lighting comfort of the elderly room.
reading books and newspapers require high illuminance, chatting and leisure, and the best lighting is soft... The lighting requirements for different activities are also different. The elderly are more prone to eye fatigue because their eyesight has decreased. Therefore, it is best to set lamps or control panels with adjustable illuminance for the elderly room, which is also one of the simplest ways to improve the lighting comfort of the elderly room.
through the refinement of lamp functions, it is convenient for the elderly to choose appropriate lamps for lighting when engaging in different activities. This humanized design (special lamp) is one of the most commonly used methods in designing the lighting of the elderly's room. It is generally recommended that we install main lights, night lights and reading lights for the elderly room. These three lights can be said to be the "basic configuration" of the lighting in the elderly room.
the color temperature of the main light in the elderly's room suggests that we choose warm light lighting, because warm light can give the elderly a peaceful and warm feeling, which is more suitable for the physical and psychological needs of the elderly. For the lamps that provide reading lighting for the elderly, it is best to choose professional reading lamps with high color temperature (white) and no stroboscopic, so as to avoid damage to the vision of the elderly caused by long-time reading.
