FAQ Answered: How Much Light do I Need in a Room?

One of the questions we are asked on a regular basis is how much light do I need in a room?
There is a simple equation to use that will determine how much light will be sufficient:
Multiply the length x the width of the room in feet
then multiply it again 1.5 times
for example if your room is 12' in length x 16' in width
12 x 16 =192
192 x 1.5=288
So you would need approximately 288 watts of light to adequately illuminate the room!
(or if you are like me and enjoy well lit spaces just round up to 300 watts and use a dimmer, then you can always adjust the light level for your mood!)
