Lighting in Interior Design:
Lighting is one of the most pivotal elements in the interior design process for residential, commercial, hospitality or other spaces. It helps in creating a welcoming and productive environment while enhancing the aesthetical value of the space. We at LightStore.co.za believe that lighting holds the absolute key to an effective interior design balance. It not only influences the space perception, ambience, and mood but can also improve health and lifestyle. Good lighting is key to efficient functionality within a space and utilizing the space optimally for its intended purpose.
As an example, kitchen lighting is very different to that of the family lounge or area where the kids do their homework. Each individual space requires specific attention considering its use, the occupants’ expectations and tasks to be performed within that space.
Lighting is known to lay significant influence on the appearance of colors within a space. It can add to or dimmish from the overall colors utilized within a specific space. Moreover, it is also capable of creating illusions by reflecting light off the wall’s ceilings, floors and other surfaces. Interior designers assert that certain lighting conditions can even make a space feel bigger.
Improving the functionality of a space is a primary role played by lighting in the interior designing domain. It illuminates the space, makes working easier, and ensures the safety and security of the premises as well as the employees.
Interior designers make use of various types of luminaries including ceiling lights, chandeliers, pendant lights, wall lights or wall sconces, floor and tables lamps etc. The type of light bulbs used also makes a massive difference as the color temperature ( warm or cool white) is very important. Globes are also available in dimmable and non-dimmable options.
