LET YOUR
LIGHT SHINE YOUR HOME

Lighting
has always been a central factor in interior design, as it can play with sizes,
modify the sense of space and even dramatize the shapes and textures of the
materials, significantly enhancing their aesthetic features. Yet light plays an important role not only on a decorative basis.

INTRODUCTION

Lighting is
one of the most important aspects of your interior because as illuminating a
room, it can fully turn the appearance of space into something better or worse.
Light is the innovative element that is the most strong of all. A lot of what
we know about our world comes from our eyes, and how we see things depends on
how they are illuminated

TYPES OF LIGHTING

  1.  Natural Lighting

Daylight (using curtains, skylights, or light shelves) is often used as the primary source of the lamp in buildings during the daytime. This will save money instead of using
artificial lighting, which is a key component of energy consumption in
buildings. Proper lighting can enhance the efficiency of the task, improve the appearance of the environment, or have positive vibes.

Importance
of daylight – The two main reasons for using daylight to fulfill the lighting
needs of architectural space are positive vibes and energy savings. Good
daylight has been shown to increase the overall mood, productivity, and well-being of the inhabitants of the house.

      2.

 Artificial Lighting

In
comparison to natural light artificial light refers to any light source created
by electrical means. Artificial lighting has many different uses and is used in
residential and commercial.  Artificial
lights are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, light-emitting colors,
and brightness levels.

Artificial
light has the potential to produce a variety of different atmospheres within
the same space making it a kind of “space shaper,” adapting the
environment to the needs of customers. The use of warm lighting, while cold
light promotes mental and physical activity, can create comfortable and relaxed
atmospheres.
Therefore, it is obvious, for example, that the lighting requirements
for a living room are not the same as those required in an operating room.
Although dim lighting creates a calming atmosphere in the spaces built for this
purpose, when used in working environments, this same lighting may affect
vision and trigger health problems.

Artificial
lighting architecture is not just about positioning light sources on a floor
plan, nor is it about choosing fixtures from a catalog. It’s about realizing
that artificial lighting is a powerful design resource for creating various
atmospheres; relaxing, calming, dry … It’s all about using light to create.
