As the name implies, interior lighting is lighting that is tailored to specific interior space. This can be a house, a company or institutions of other kinds. When choosing for your home, you have a variety of lighting options available, such as wall or table lamps, chandeliers, hanging lamps, and floor and ceiling lamps. Adequate interior lighting design can help to make the interior of the apartment as beautiful as possible, but also as bright as possible, depending on what you want. Now with lighting, there are damping options, so you can very easily dose the lighting you want according to the conditions of the space.
Today, many types of lighting are manufactured in different shapes, colors, sizes. The choice is abundant, but it must be carefully chosen. The interior lighting design should be tailored to our needs and the space style. Therefore, it is important to know what all types of lighting are and what they serve.
There are three types of interior lighting: working, ambient and accent. Work lighting requires a higher intensity of light and is used daily for various activities. In addition to lighting the rooms to perform different activities, indoor lighting also performs a decorative function. Essentially, all three types of lighting can perform a decorative function, though ambient and accent lighting are preferred.
Direct lighting illuminates specific parts of the premises where we perform certain activities. For example, direct lighting is placed above the kitchen elements that illuminate the kitchen counter. They include almost all types of accent lighting since they focus on lighting one or more objects. Desk lamps also belong in direct lighting.
On the other hand, indirect lighting includes almost all types of ambient lighting, such as floor lighting, decorative led strips, as well as wall or floor lamps. However, often the boundary between the two types of lighting is not clear enough, and therefore there is mixed lighting that illuminates one surface directly and the other indirectly. Such are floor lamps that directly illuminate the area in which they are directed, but indirectly illuminate the rest of the room.
Before deciding what kind of lighting to place in a particular room, you need to think carefully about what the function of that room is and what activities will be performed in it. You will need different types of lighting for different functions. Kitchens, bathrooms, and dining rooms typically require more light than bedrooms and living rooms. Relaxation areas such as the bedroom and the living room need a more relaxed environment that does not intensive lighting.
A living room should not be directly illuminated, but rather that the light bounces off the floor to create a comfortable environment. If you like to read a book in the living room, place a table and a table lamp next to your favorite spot. LED lamps are a great solution for a social game table. If you have a fireplace, or art paintings, or plants, you will accentuate those parts of your living space. For example, for lighting plants, floor lighting is recommended, while for works of art, can lights will be a good choice.
A kitchen is a place where people prepare food and do some cleaning. In many houses, a kitchen is also a place where people gather, so solving the lighting problem is not an easy job. For starters, it's clear that the focus is on the worktop and the part around the sink. In most kitchens, the basic rule of thumb is to place the sink near or in front of the windows to maximize the use of natural light. The surface should be illuminated so that light does not fall directly on it, as you will have a lot of trouble with the shadows. Instead, use the lights placed under the kitchen elements. The central chandelier makes the last link - it will bring comfort to the room, and increase the functionality of all parts of the room.
A bedroom’s lighting design is generally more versatile as the choice of the appearance of the lamps is usually conditioned by the design of the furniture, as well as the materials and colors in the room, because the furniture is a dominant element of the interior, and light makes the experience of space, so these two things must be in symbiosis.
Dark bedrooms are great for rest, but little use of light is available to allow for some other activities. Read, sleep, relax, and create a romantic setting for your love nest. This room should be enriched with diffused light, other types of lighting that will be diffused, and will emphasize the individual edges or corners of the room.
Ceiling lighting should also be designed, as well as zones for freestanding floor or stone lamps that would best fit the corners of the room. The type of lamps and style depends on the bedroom users and their needs. Couples need individually controlled reading lamps on either side of the bed. Kids need an extra desk lamp to learn on the desk. The baby needs to have a dimmer installed so parents can control it at night. The elderly needs stronger but diffused lighting because their eyes are especially sensitive to flash and glare.
Bathroom interior lighting design is very important and needs to be well designed to feel comfortable and relaxed. If your bathroom is larger and if you decide to decorate it according to the latest trends in the world of interior design magazines, the lighting in this room will certainly be reduced to just such a striking chandelier. Lighting for such bathrooms can also come in the form of modern chandeliers, such as one of many balls of various sizes made of transparent glass, reminiscent of soap balloons.
Whether you combine the ambient with the decorative style, it is important to display the colors of the walls and the shape of the furniture appropriately. Some basic knowledge of light theory is out of the question. The fact that dark colors absorb light while light reflects certainly influences the type and model of the lighting, as well as its brightness and intensity.
When it comes to some types of lighting, we suggest installing several ceiling lights in strategically important locations. Also, if you have a table in the corner, you can put a wall lamp on it. Use wall lamps, pendants, and chandeliers for classic elegance and style enhancement. Test the voltage level, durability, frugality and the number of watts that match the purpose of the lighting. You can install floor lamps for an extra atmospheric experience.
