Lighting is a major component for every properly designed interior. It can change the mood of a space and even make a room look larger. Interior designers use different fixture types with proper placement to achieve the perfect balance.
Lighting can change the color of a room by enhancing existing features or highlighting pieces of furniture. Darker colors can make the room appear smaller while light colors can open up a space. Light can also be reflected off walls or surfaces and change the color of the paint on the walls. Playing around with different light fixtures, shades and bulbs can change up the look and feel of a room quite a bit. Expert lighting specialists and interior designers know which bulbs and shades work with certain paint colors and shades to create a harmonious space.
For most, lighting needs to serve a purpose, or else it’s just wasting electricity. Light is a major tool for increasing the functionality of a room. Task and ambient lighting can help illuminate areas where activities are performed and can help increase the efficiency and productivity of the activity. Placing the light fixtures in the right location without distracting from the other main elements of the room is very important.
