During the day almost no electric light source is needed due to the two windows facing to the east direction. Common activities I perform in my room are drawing, playing video games, reading, listening to music and spending time with my friends. Most of these activities except for drawing and reading don’t require full brightness of light and usually there is Christmas lights (decorative lights) used as a general source of lighting. Even though this is not really recommended, it doesn’t cause any issue since the main purpose of these decorative lights is not general lighting, but acting more like accent lighting. Living Room: The main purpose of the living room is gathering with roommates, watching TV and eating meals. The Lights are always turned off during the day since there are three windows almost covering the whole south façade of the room. During nighttime, the decorative Christmas lights surrounding the edges of the ceiling are  Project 1: Your Home Experience - Real World Exploration of Lighting September 17, 2014 4 turned on in order to get a warmer environment feeling. These lights are good to prevent the glare on the TV screen but economically it is not a smart option. There are few major false installments in the living room are as well. The surface-mount type luminaire on the ceiling is right in the middle of the room but the row of barrier on the ceiling is restricting the light to reach on the other half of the room. Kitchen: The kitchen area is the most weakly lightened section of the house. There are two vaguely placed surface mount lights, one in the middle, one over the sink. The window and the porch door provide daylight but the fridge placed right next to the window is blocking the majority of the daylight entering the room. Additionally, the porch roof is also blocking the sunlight to reach to two windows. Another major mistake done in the kitchen is not placing any sort of light sources to the small section going towards the back of the kitchen. This area consists cupboards, thus the lack of lighting is giving hard time using these cupboards during night. Bathroom: The bathroom is a relatively small area, which makes it easier to lighten all around. During the day the electric lighting is almost not used because of the daylight entering the room through the window placed. Only time the general light in the bathroom is during people use the mirror during daytime and during nighttime.
