Don’t think of lighting as an afterthought. The right lighting is one of the most fundamental elements in interior design.
The wrong lighting can completely destroy the impact of even the most well thought out design.
Good lighting makes your room more functional and more beautiful. Providing the right lighting allows you to enjoy using your room without eye strain or glare. Effective lighting can emphasize attractive architecture and camouflage less appealing elements.
Well planned lighting is the most effective way to bring out the best in your room.
Lighting should be as much a part of your planning in the early stage as color and furniture.
Providing the right combination of lighting to provide a good overall light level, task lighting and accent lighting.
There are two basic aspects to think about:
- The effect of the light on the room
- The appearance of the fixture itself, even when it is not lit
Lighting can be a feature of your room as much as a painting or other artwork.
