When renovating and decorating, we usually look for furniture, paint, carpets, and decorative items as pictures. However, lighting can have a major impact on the overall appearance of the room. Lighting design is responsible for regulating the atmosphere or atmosphere of a room. With careful design and planning for types, colors and lighting colors, the room can be given a different atmosphere. Proper lighting can regulate moods, increase productivity, and contribute to a sense of community welfare. This can change the unattractive space into the desired space.

Natural lighting is the light from the sun entering through windows and doors. Direct sunlight is a healthy source of light, but the brightness and intensity varies greatly. Time, season, or weather affects natural sunlight. To control the quantity of natural light, various types of glass or curtains can be used. Diffusion and reflection are a great way to control this free light source. A good idea is to find a wall that receives light directly from the sun and paint it in bright colors. Reflected light creates an atmosphere in the room. The wall surface can control the diffusion of light, the rough surface has a different effect from the smooth surface.
Artificial lighting can be all types of lights. This light source can be controlled in every aspect, intensity, color, and area of spread. To get the desired effect in a room, the best idea is to use a combination of various types of artificial lighting. Ambient lighting is to lighten the entire room and give a certain ‘mood’ to the room. Accent lighting is used to illuminate certain aspects or details of interior decoration, such as carvings, pictures or display shelves.
Lighting can be functional or aesthetic. Functionally, lighting must be correct for the intended purpose. A good example of functional lighting is lighting for reading lights, lights above the sink or in the mirror in the room. Lighting tasks must always be glare free to make the task easier without straining the eyes. Aesthetically, lighting provides an atmosphere of space. To create an atmosphere, environmental lights are used in the corner of the ceiling or along the sides of the room. The intensity and color of the lights is very important for the atmosphere. For ‘mood’ lighting, it is very important that the light source be hidden.
With some lighting design ideas, you can change the look of the room that is visible and make it look bigger or smaller. Rooms with high ceilings can get more comfortable light by using lower lighting from the ceiling. Light should not escape from the height of the source. Use a lampshade that directs the light down. Instead, by using the upward lighting pointing to the ceiling, the room looks taller.
Standing lights and table lamps work well for certain purposes and illuminate only the room area. The lamp must be placed behind the reader shoulder. The lamp is also perfect for lighting dark corners in the room. And of course, decorative lampshades at corner corner tables and side tables enhance the atmosphere and bring attention to a specific area of the room. Equipment style will add to your interior decoration, both fitness is turned on or off.
Lighting is equally important in interior design with the color or style of furniture and accessories. All your work in decorations can be destroyed at once due to poor lighting. But carefully planned lighting will greatly enhance the best detail in your design.
