16 Mar How to furnish with the light
Today we have stopped taking the importance of light for granted both on a functional level and on a purely and exquisitely decorative level. Light has therefore become a fundamental element that also conditions our life and our way of living spaces.
In fact, knowing how to illuminate the house and choosing how to best position the light points in a home, in addition to responding to needs in terms of practicality, it also has a great effect on mood and the sense of well-being.
That is why it is so important to have proper lighting in every room of the house. And that’s why we think that having a team of light designers is essential for any self-respecting furnishing project. Technically it is necessary to know that light guides the gaze of those who enter an environment, directs perception and directs attention to details. Environments can thus be interpreted by light to accentuate certain areas and have a decisive influence on the perception of architectural elements.
Let’s find out our lighting designers’ designers on how to furnish your home with light by following different characteristics and peculiarities that the lighting of the rooms should have.
Create zones based on its functionality
Areas where a certain functionality in space is preferred, such as transit areas, rest areas and exhibition and work surfaces can be highlighted. On a purely aesthetic and furnishing level, to be combined with functional lighting, the differentiated lighting can be integrated with the aim of articulating the space and improving orientation and design. Thanks to this solution, you will not falling into the error of illuminating a space uniform, thus making it become a monotonous space and not allowing to emphasize either the architecture or the design of the furnishings.
The solution? Simple: low general lighting, which is the starting point on which to place the accents (consisting of different light bodies). With lighting programming systems, therefore, it will be possible to adapt the functional areas to different uses.
Delimit each environment
To achieve this goal, in case we are in large multi-functional spaces, floor lighting is the solution thinked for you; this allows in fact to highlight objects and surfaces that can be walked on. If, on the other hand, you are a lover of vertical lighting, the play of light must be made according to the different light intensities of the surfaces, with the always fundamental objective of enhancing the architectural elements, this time inserted on the wall surfaces of the space.
Therefore, uniform illumination of surfaces will accentuate and enhance them as architectural elements. A soft brightness on the walls, aimed at defining the surfaces of the environment, does not have a strong effect as much as uniform illumination of the entire wall.
Accentuate the architecture
The lighting of architectural details allows you to shift attention from the environment as a whole to the individual elements that make it up. The grazing light will therefore allow us to accentuate the individual elements or surfaces and thus highlight their shape and surface.
The spaces can be visually structured by the lighting of architectural elements. By playing on the different light intensities it is possible to establish a hierarchy of spaces.
With light you can get fantastic results, carefully designing each environment based on the design you want to use and the result you want to achieve, both during the day and during the evening and night hours.
