Our well-being as well as the room atmosphere can be positively influenced by light, because only through the right light can a room unfold its full effect. Light can attract attention, soothe, relax, or aesthetically create an object. In addition to daylight, you can install sophisticated indirect lighting or directional lighting sources to create interesting accents in the room.
And here, good planning is the key, because depending on the room function, there are different lighting requirements. Today, we will give you some tips and ideas on how to create inviting and attractive spaces with light.
Direct and indirect lighting in combination
The lighting design is one room the finishing touch and creates the right atmosphere in the room. The times when lighting was strictly limited to switching lamps on and off have long been a thing of the past. Nowadays it is an important design element. We combine different light sources and experiment with colors and light intensities to create the right mood for every activity. Cool, stronger and direct light, for example, stimulates excitation, while weak, warm and indirect light provides comfort.
When designing a room with light, you should consider how much light you need for what purpose and at what place. Spotlights and spotlights can be staged very precisely and can also be easily integrated into ceilings. With hidden luminaires and LED stripes, you can instead create moody and extraordinary lighting ideas. The rule of thumb for the ideal lighting works a mixture of three different light sources best.
Ideas for light scenes in the living room
The living room is usually the largest room and the center of the domestic living environment. Here, apart, read, played with the children. The requirements for the living room lighting are very different and only a centrally placed ceiling light can usually not meet this. For this reason, several light sources are distributed in the room.
Suspended drywall ceilings, light vaults and polystyrene profiles, for example, offer outstanding possibilities for creative lighting design in the living room. This allows you to reduce room heights or conceal installations and insulation. Professional lighting designers often work with light-dark contrasts and combine LED strips and mounting points to create a stunning effect in the room. The installation pots are installed directly in the gypsum board and the LED strip is hidden in the ceiling construction. The ceiling seems to float as the spotlight of the spots radiates downwards. Drywall also offers many options for modern interior design, such as wall niches and TV walls, which can also be illuminated by installation pots.
Spotlight in the hallway for optimal illumination
The hallway is usually a narrow passage area and often has no windows, which is why lighting is particularly important. The hall lighting should give a welcoming atmosphere and illuminate the entire room evenly. For example, multi-lamp spotlights and spot systems can provide for optimal viewing conditions. They are highly functional thanks to its extreme tilt and swivel and can also function as lighting for art are used. A long corridor provides the perfect setting for a gallery with paintings, family photos or contemporary photographs. The advantage of the LED lighting is that it provides sufficient brightness to emphasize all the subtleties of the artwork, and does not damage the works. Thus, pictures, sculptures or even jewelery can be effectively highlighted. For example, in the case of a four-point spot, two lamps can be directed to the wall, while the other two spots can illuminate the way to the other rooms.
Relaxed light and indirect lighting in the bedroom
The bedroom is a place of rest and relaxation where we can relax after a busy work day. In addition to general lighting light at the bed for reading, the mirrors and the cabinet is advisable. A really relaxed, cozy atmosphere in the bedroom can best be achieved by indirect lighting. LED light strips immerse the room in gentle glow and make furniture look like floating. They can be easily and quickly fastened to chimney sides, under beds, in niches and even behind the TV. The brightness is then reflected by walls and floors and creates wonderful effects.
Light planning for the kitchen
In the kitchen optimal light is required: bright during the preparation of food, comfortable at the meal and effective when guests come for dinner. This is why LED stripes and indirect lighting are becoming more and more popular in the kitchen. With LED sub-luminaires on kitchen cabinets, the working area can be illuminated well and without shadow, while hidden LED strips create atmospheric permanent light in the ceiling and wall.
Indirect lighting for a pampering bath
In the bathroom you also need different lighting moods. For daily body care and cosmetics it must be functional, but sometimes really romantic. If it is to go fast in the morning, LED installation spots on the ceiling donate friendly-clear light. With a good mirror lighting, make-up or eyebrows quickly become a good luck. In the evening, when the hustle and bustle of everyday life is to be forgotten, indirectly illuminating LED bars provide warm, flattering light and create the perfect atmosphere for a pampering bath.
