Lighting Tips
Lighting is one of the most important yet understated elements of any space.
Yet one of the most overlooked. Good lighting can transform the simplest of spaces to one of great interest, in addition, poor or neglected lighting can reduce a magnificent space to simply mundane. There are four basic types of light that can and should be used in layers, to achieve the best lighting design. They are: ambient lighting, task lighting, accent lighting and decorative lighting.
Ambient lighting fills the undefined areas of a room with a soft level of general light, enough for someone to navigate the space.
Task lighting is a bright light that illuminats a particular area where a visual activity such as food prep or reading will take place.
Accent lighting is similar to task lighting, in that it consists of largely directed light used to focus attention to itself or some object.
Decorative lighting can fit any of the above categories to create the environment that you desire. The pictures above, reflect the use of LED (light emitting diode) lighting to illuminate the translucency of an onyx sink in a small powder bath and an onyx counter top in a butlers pantry. Both situations create a simple, yet stunning use of light, while creating significant ambiance. In using LED components, the energy savings is considerable ( lower watts, 20 year bulb replacement and no heat discharge). Making these choices great for your interior projects and the environment.
