Interior Design Tips
Whether it’s for a reception (you only get one chance to make a first impression!) a corridor or an informal meeting area, there is a vast selection of types of light in interior design that can beautifully merge form and function to create lighting that is truly worth talking about. With that in mind, we have put together the following points to guide you through the different options available.
The essence of interior design lies in ensuring that all the elements complement one another. From the colour scheme to the choice of furniture, through to the materials used – everything must work in harmony to create the desired effect.
Lighting is another component that is essential to achieving a cohesive fluidity in the design. Not only can lighting enhance the design choices, it can be used to create a powerful statement in itself.
Lighting also has the ability to change the perceived size or shape of a room. Whether you’re dealing with a vast amount of space or very limited space, light placement is key to creating the overall impression you desire. It can be used to manipulate space by drawing your eyes to particular areas.
Layered lighting is the perfect solution for directing where you want visitors’ eyes to be drawn, utilising walls as well as the ceiling. You may even wish to use lighting or other types of light in interior design schemes to physically guide users in the right direction.
Lighting can be used to draw attention to details of your project in all their glory. Directional lighting can be used to ensure visitors don’t overlook key aspects of your interior, whether it be a stunning staircase, unique architectural feature, or an intriguing textural wall panel.
Particularly in an office environment, a client will be looking to create spaces that inspire productivity, and lighting has the ability to greatly affect the mood of a room. Many things must be considered to ensure an interior is sufficiently lit for functionality, mood and atmosphere. Ambient lighting interior design takes account of both natural and artificial light and has a psychological and physiological impact on people so it’s vital you get it right. Breakout spaces should have a different atmosphere to a meeting room, and this also applies to reception areas compared to a private office.
Lighting is the one constant that has the power to transform any space at the push of a button. Relaxed, productive, and inviting; each individual atmosphere can be created through the power of intelligent lighting.
