Interior lighting – why it’s important
When it comes to interior design many people think of floors, walls and furniture. If it’s kitchen you’re arranging you focus on such things as cabinets, appliances or kitchen worktops. You’re all about granite countertops, sleek state-of-the-art appliances and functionalities. When it’s the living room you want to have a stylish flooring or maybe think of installing fancy fireplace right in the middle. With bathroom it’s all about worktops and bathroom fixtures. The list of things you have in mind when it comes to design and arrangement can go on and on. Yet, there’s one really important thing that’s missing. It’s the lighting. Interestingly, many people somehow forget about proper lighting of the rooms they designing or remodeling. Yet, interior lighting is a very important element of every room, even the smallest and seemingly unimportant one. After all, it’s the lighting which very often makes the difference.
Therefore, you need to remind yourself of the importance of interior lighting. Try to keep in mind that lighting can make your otherwise dull rooms shine, it can make them look optically bigger, it can draw your attention to certain places or objects etc. There are many positive ways that properly fitted interior lighting can do for your rooms to appear great. Yet, as with everything there’s the other side. If interior lighting is poorly fitted or misplaced your rooms can look gloomy, their appeal can substantially diminish, they may look smaller and shadier than in reality. In one word – poor interior lighting can destroy your rooms. Therefore, you need to be extra careful when it comes to fitting and installation.
Interior lighting – catch the light
If you really want to catch the light, you need to be sure what you’re doing. You need to have a certain vision and try to go ahead with it all the way through. There’s simply no middle ground. If you decide to stop in the middle you can be sure that the final effects will be spoiled and not as you wanted them. Interior light must work in coordination with the whole design. It can’t completely overwhelm it or draw all the attention to itself. After all, you want to catch the light and effectively use its potential and not blast your guests eyes with pure light.
