Lighting always plays an important role in any interior space. When decorating, people usually focus on furniture, art and accessories, but lighting - especially ambient lighting - is often an afterthought.
The different components of lighting can provide illumination for the entire room, as well as highlight specific elements.The use of lighting can add to or subtract from the overall colors of a room, or from only those surfaces the light is meant to enhance.
One major role of lighting in the interior setting is functionality.After all, lighting needs to serve a purpose. Track lighting is the perfect example of positional lighting. Hung from the ceiling, the adjustable necks and lamps can be aimed at specific elements.
Table lamps are used to enhance the feeling of comfort and ambience and create a mood whether in the living room, family room or bedroom.They help soften the surroundings and create a sense of atmosphere.
“Accent lighting adds drama to a room by creating visual interest.”
As part of an interior design scheme, it is used to focus and draw the eye to paintings, sculptures or other features, such as the texture of a brick or stone wall, window treatments or outdoor landscaping.
If a room does not have sufficient lighting, it can feel cramped, especially in close-proximity furniture arrangements in a smaller setting.Lamps, wall sconces and ceiling fixtures brighten a room and help create a visually larger space.
Interior lighting is one of the most important aspects of any living space. It can change the mood of a room just as it does the perceived size of a room.This can be especially enhanced by using dimmers to set a mood - even a table lamp can benefit from a dimmer switch!
When all these elements come together, the magic happens, and spaces take on harmony and effortless fluidity of design.
