Meaning & Features of Architectural Lighting Design

Architectural lighting design plays a very integral role in making sure that the ambiance of a place feels a certain way. Design of lighting systems, including natural light, electric light, or both is an important factor that comes into play during interior designing. The right amount of light can rightly define a place and there are some golden rules that need to be followed to achieve that.

 

  1. Spread the light all around

Bright lights cause a lot of glare and instead of giving a soft hue; they end up making a place look all the darker. This sort of architectural lighting design needs to be avoided as it takes away the beauty of any setup. Instead, place lights in several key areas in order to get rid of any dark corners and bring focus on only the important areas.

 

  1. Customize your controls

Controls such as motion detectors and remote switches can work wonders as far as lighting designs are concerned.  They not only provide lighting options but also make accessing such options all the easier. If the controls can be used comfortably, then lighting can be modified easily.

 

  1. Buy good quality light bulbs

Light bulbs of superior quality will add to the appeal of the architectural set up whereas cheap bulbs will give a washed out appearance.

 

  1. Make use of multiple light sources

Using layers of a light source can really add to the appeal of a place. They can be used together or separately to create different scenes.

 

Using LED lighting can help illuminate any space in an aesthetic manner. Find out everything about the world of LEDs and lighting at the LED Expo Thailand 2018.
