Article Summary: 

Lumens are an important factor to consider when choosing the right light bulb for your space. Lumens describe the amount of light or brightness received from a bulb. To measure light, a light meter can be used to ensure an appropriate amount of light is being used in a space. The necessary amount of lumens varies depending on individual needs and the task or process completed in a space. For example, corridors need 10-20 lumens per square meter, while spaces needing bright light need 55-110 lumens per square meter. Incorporating the proper amount of lumens is important in creating a functional and stylish space, and consulting with an interior designer can help achieve this.
