    1. Kitchen & Bath Lighting

    2. A good lighting design should: • Look good – both people and design space • Provide the proper amount of light in every room • Be built and constructed within budget, code, and other constraints in mind • Be environmentally responsible • Respond to the architecture and interior design • Produce good color • Achieve the desired mood of each space • Allow lighting control

    3. The layered approach to lighting designBegin by thinking in layers decorative focal task ambient

    9. Lighting Concepts • General Lighting • Task Lighting • Workplane • Distance • Footcandle • Lumen • Candlepower (Candelas) • Watts • Lamp Data Tables

    10. Lighting Concepts general lighting • Every room must have enough illumination to navigate through it. • The amount of light will vary depending on the activities performed in the room. • General lighting is measured at the workplane level. If there is no workplane like in the livingroom it is calculated at 30” above the floor. • General lighting is measured in “footcandles”

    11. Lighting Concepts general lighting • Even light distribution is the key to great general lighting. Fixture placement and spacing must be accurately placed based on the lamps cone of light.

    12. General Lighting General Lighting

    13. Lighting Concepts task lighting • Working at the sink • Working at a desk • Working at a prep area • Reading

    14. Lighting Concepts workplane • Workplane – The actual or implied surface on which work happens Distance = Lamp Ht. –workplane height Distance = 96”-36” = 60”

    15. Lighting Concepts footcandles How do we measure the light on a work surface? • Footcandle – a unit of measurement that describes the amount of light on a surface, workplane, art, etc. • Lux – The European Footcandle Lux = FC x 10.76 FC = Lux x .0929

    16. Lighting Concepts footcandles • Sphere w/ 1 foot radius • 1 SF of sphere surface • 1 Footcandle is the amount of lighting falling on that surface • There are 12.57 of these one radius square curved planes in any sphere. • They are known as Steradians

    17. Lighting Concepts lumen Let’s talk about another form of measurement in lighting • Lumen – a unit of measurement defining the quantity of light a lamp produces. • In order to achieve the proper amount of footcandles necessary to illuminate a work surface we must know the strength of the light source. • Only then can we determine how many are needed and how far apart they are spaced.

    18. Lighting Concepts candlepower • Candlepower – the measurement of a lamps intensity, but only if it is directional

    19. 5’ 144 footcandles 50 footcandles 640 footcandles

    20. Lighting Concepts beam angle • A directional lamp focuses or redirects its light energy into a cone emanating from a lamp’s lens where it is measured in candlepower. • The center of the cone has the most intense light • The edges have the least

    21. The beam angle is defined where candlepower drops off to 50% From 50% to 10% is called spill light

    22. Lighting Concepts watts • Wattage tells us how much power or energy is burned by a lamp • Wattage tells us nothing about the amount of light a lamp can produce • A 60 watt PAR38 lamp will have ~ three times the candlepower when compared to a 75 watt R40 lamp.

    23. Color and Reflectance

    24. Color and Reflectance • Color Temperature • Color Rendition Index (CRI) • Reflectance

    25. Color Temperature

    26. Color Temperature • Color temperature is measured in Kelvin • 10,000K appears blue • 1000K appears red • 3000K to 3600K is considered neutral

    27. Color Temperature • Lower color temperature means warmer color • Higher color temperature means a cooler color

    28. Cool colors Warm colors

    29. Color Rendition Index

    30. Color Rendition Index • Color Rendition Index is a scale from 1 to 100 which describes the effectiveness of a light source in reproducing accurately, an objects color. 100 being the best. • The sun has a CRI of 100 • The best lamps to use are ones with a CRI over 80 • Incandescent lamps have a CRI of over 98 • Fluorescents are the ones we want to be careful with

    31. Color and Reflectance cri • Typical 4 foot fluorescent tube cool white or warm white bulbs have a CRI of around 50 and 60 respectively • Color corrected fluorescent lamps are now available in 70 and 80 CRI and those with rare earth phosphorus reach 90

    32. COLOR TEMP. VS CRI • Color Temperature describes how the lamp itself appears when illuminated. • CRI describes the effectiveness of a light source in reproducing accurately, an objects color.

    33. All together now! • Lumens - • define the quantity of light • Candlepower • defines the intensity of light • Footcandles • defines the amount of light on a surface

    34. All together now! • Color temperature • describes how the lamp itself appears • CRI • describes the effectiveness of a light source in reproducing accurately, an objects color.

    35. Reflectance • Reflectance – is the amount of light which reflects off an object • This quantity of light is measured in “Foot-lamberts” • The amount of light that reflects off of objects in a room adds to the overall illumination • So, reflectance must be taken into consideration when determining the Footcandle requirements for a room.
