Just so, how many lumens do I need calculator?
To determine the needed lumens, you will need to multiply your room square footage by your room foot-candle requirement. For example, a 100 square foot living room, which needs 10-20 foot-candles, will need 1,000-2,000 lumens.
Also Know, how many can lights for a 12x12 room? The typical rule-of-thumb is 24" from each wall, and then 3-5 feet between cans. So in a 12' room you'd probably want two rows of lights. Considering it is a bedroom and you don't need it as bright as a kitchen, you can probably get away with 2 rows of 4 lights for a total of 8.
Also question is, is 5000 lumens a lot?
For example, in a small room, 5000 lumens will feel a lot brighter to the eyes than in a larger room double that size. While a room of 250 square feet will usually require 5000 lumens, it is important to note this is for general lighting and you may still need to add additional light around the room.
How many lumens do you need for studying?
When looking for a study lamp, you want a high enough lumen to give you the brightness you need for the task at hand. A general rule of thumb is that desk or task lighting should be around 50 lumens per square foot.
