Light up your World

Light up your World

Lighting for the home is a complex business, and with so many styles and types to choose from, the home owner can create a unique ambience, both inside and out. Interior designers prefer to take each room on its individual merits, and the aim is to provide the right amount of light, while enhancing the character of the room.

LED solutions

Light emitting diodes are not a novelty any longer, and with the low energy consumption, are ideal for the eco-friendly home. Good quality LED spots are not cheap, but with the energy saving and durability, they are still an attractive alternative to regular bulbs. LED light behaves very differently from the mains voltage bulb, and it is easier to create the right ambience, especially when using strips, which have adhesive backing and can easily be placed in the right locations.

Lighting review

Experts will say that each light source needs validation by looking at its function. If it highlights an item or provides task light, then it has a purpose, otherwise consider removing the light source altogether. The concept that more light is better, is not one to follow, as subtle lighting achieves so much more.

Shadows

These can be used to remarkable effect, and with a little experimentation, one can find the ideal location for a light source. Shadows give variation and texture, and without that, a room can look and feel rather bland.

Wall lighting

This is one of the interior designer’s secret weapons, with a series of well-aimed spots on a living room wall that highlight ornaments and plants, one can perfectly showcase specific areas, while retaining the overall light levels in the room. For a range of top quality interior and exterior light fittings, check out Wall lights from lightslights.com.au, a leading Australian supplier of quality lighting.

A high level of control

Dimmer switches are an essential tool, if one wishes to have complete control over how much light is emitted at any given time, and for this reason, are recommended as standard. In a garden setting, for example, one can have several circuits, and with timers and light sensor devices, the lighting will automatically adjust to the required level.

The brightest spot

The eye is naturally drawn to the brightest spot in a room, so with the right use of spotlights, one can enhance the strong points, with just the right amount of directed light. Subtle use of colours will accentuate the highlighted objects, and bring the room to life. A recessed spot can highlight a painting or fireplace, and floor-based spots are effective in highlighting curtains and blinds. If a person wanted wall lights in Sydney, there are online suppliers of the latest generation of LED lighting solutions for the home.

Talk to an interior designer

This is a good idea, not just for the artistic input they have, but also because an interior designer will be up to date with lighting technology, and without that knowledge, one is missing out on exciting alternatives.
