Improving Interior Design With Lighting

Lighting Interior Design

When it comes to home improvement, lighting can have a huge impact on the look and feel of a space. From creating a cozy atmosphere to adding a stylish focal point, the right lighting can make all the difference. Here are some tips that interior designers use to improve a living space through lighting.

Invest In Adjustable Smart Lighting Fixtures To Create A Diverse And Dynamic Atmosphere

When selecting lighting fixtures, consider upgrading to designs that can be adjusted to create different levels of light. This allows you to adjust the atmosphere to suit your mood and the needs of a particular space. From dimming the lights for a romantic evening to brightening the room for a lively gathering, adjustable lighting gives you the freedom to customize your home’s atmosphere.

Utilize Layers Of Lighting To Create A Warm, Inviting Atmosphere

Layering your lighting is a great way to create a cozy atmosphere. By combining general, task, and accent lighting, you can create an inviting space that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

For example, think of the lighting in your kitchen. Start with general overhead lighting that fills the space. Next, place accent lighting over gathering spaces like kitchen islands. Finally, use task lighting to provide good lighting where you are preparing food, such as under-counter lighting or spotlights over a range or cooktop.

Use Task Lighting In Areas That Require More Focused Illumination

Task lighting is essential for areas such as the kitchen or home office, where more focused illumination is needed for tasks such as chopping vegetables or reading documents. Task lighting should be bright, but not harsh, and should be directed in a way that eliminates any glare or shadows.

Add Dimmers To Create A Range Of Lighting Options

Dimmers are a popular way of gaining full control over the lighting in a room. With the flick of a switch, you can adjust the light intensity to create the perfect atmosphere. Dimmer-controlled lighting is perfect for spaces like dining rooms and home theaters.

Incorporate Natural Lighting Whenever Possible

Natural light has a unique quality that can be difficult to replicate with artificial light. When adding a new addition or remodeling a space, consider how natural light from windows and skylights can be used to let in natural light.

Create A Focal Point With Accent Lighting

Accent lighting is a great way to draw attention to artwork or architectural features.. Hang multiple pendant lights over a kitchen island or dining table to create a stylish focal point. Pendant lights and spot lights are a great way to add a stylish touch to a room. Focus the light on a mantle, niche or other architectural detail to create a beautiful focal point.

Add Ambient Lighting

Ambient lighting is a great way to create a comfortable atmosphere in a room. Wall sconces, lamps, or recessed lighting, or under-cabinet lighting can all be used to add a soft, warm glow to a room.
