Good lighting creates atmosphere and makes any room cozy. Good lighting allows you to better visualize an activity, improves the colors of the environment and encourages those who enjoy that warmth, and when combined intelligently, can even project a trace of vitality.
Correct lighting can open and fill a dark corner, raise a low ceiling, or otherwise, camouflage a dark angle or give vividness to a gloomy room. It is about creating with light the best possible effect and recreating desired atmospheres. Provide sensations, good visualization and comfort. These are the purposes of home lighting.
But there are more, the lamps, with their designs can provide recreation and bring home up to fashion and current trends with their most current lighting points. Lights that give light and personality to the home.
But not all illuminations are the same. The color of the bulb, the power of use, the place chosen to place the spot light, the type of lamp, the envelope and the orientation of the light beam will create that personality in the lighting.
Of all the formulas of illumination, the most common is the environmental one. Or what is the same, the lighting that is adopted generally in the rooms of a house or in the spaces of any office, is the basic light that serves to give light to a more or less limited area.
And for that general illumination, there is a whole world of possibilities and a whole potential to integrate light as an object of decoration, both the luminaire itself and the light that develops the illuminating device. Remember that light makes environments. It’s magic.
There is ambient lighting that lets your light fall directly from above, from ceiling lamps or spotlights. But there are other lamps that produce a more subtle effect, throwing the beams upwards, not directly downwards, to project a dim light with the support of the reflection of clear ceilings.
We can also find ambient lights that are embedded, that are embedded in the ceiling, that go unnoticed on top of the rooms and that project its light thanks to reflective internal linings.
This type of lighting is more direct, but is good for small spaces, for smaller rooms where you want to concentrate light.
The disadvantage of this formula of illumination comes from the side of the excessive directionality of the light emission, although, if what is sought is that, it is a good choice to leave areas very illuminated and others subdued just below the lamp. It is creating contrast with the application of a simple beam be directed light.
Finally, between the ambient lights we find another formula, halfway between the ceiling lamps and the embedded.
These are the wall lamps, which can project the light up to give that zenithal illumination that we discussed, or work with low-power lamps to illuminate very specific areas, to fill spaces and dark or veiled corners, as we mentioned above.
Yours is the last word. You already know how that invisible decoration operates, which tames the beams of light to create ambiances.
