Light up the World - Lighting Architecture

by Guest on Oct 25, 2012

A home can be beautified by its architecture – the doors, the halls, the pillars, and the arches; or by its decorations – the wallpapers, the hanging artwork, the drapes, or the color combination of the furniture cushions. But the tone of the entire home or a room, in particular, is set by how it is displayed to the viewer. A blue wall would be no different than a green one if not seen in daylight. In the end, the feel of a specimen room or house is set by what is highlighted and what is shaded. This is achieved by lighting the room in various ways, depending on the theme.

Lighting is not constrained to places like the living room but is needed even in corridors and entryways. Special types of lightings may be required for certain rooms – like the bathroom or the powder room. Lighting in homes is of four types – task lighting which is used to light up a specific area or task like reading, ambient lighting which is used to light up an entire room and bestow a diffused look of glow, accent lighting which is used to accentuate certain parts of the room like a decorated wall or art piece, and decorative lighting, where the lighting or the equipment itself is a product of design.

It is very simple for people to convert the aura of their homes by simply adjusting their lighting a bit. For example, simply changing the shade of a lamp can change the effect it has on the room. Replacing old lampshades with newer innovative designs of shades can perk up the lamp itself.

Lights don’t need to be very bright or very dull, but at certain times these adjustments may be required. It is advisable to install dimmers, so one can simply set the exact brightness the light must provide to create the required effect. Joining inline cables also allows these effects, and can be carried out at home without professional help.

Chandeliers are considered high class and aristocratic, and having a chandelier in the home can give it a vintage look. Chandeliers are very popular in homes built in the Victorian era, even if they are small and can’t provide sufficient lighting.

Special needs lights are very popular in lighting up certain parts of the home like corridors and bathrooms. These lights turn on and off automatically based on whether anyone is in the room, thereby requiring less effort from the person and also saving electricity.

Certain lighting techniques developed in Europe like decorative fiberglass lighting or plant LED lighting are very popular as they embody a marriage of technology and nature, and also make the home feel like outdoors, with all the greenery.

These lighting techniques are the cheapest means to turn a dull home around and can cause quite the effect if properly seen to. They can be done at home, for minimal cost, and with no professional help.
