According to renowned lighting manufacturer Clipsal, “Lighting has the power to transform a room, showcase its interiors, and create the perfect ambience.” (www.clipsal.com)
So how can you achieve that special feel through clever lighting arrangements?
Long standing business partners of MRE Electrical Group, Clipsal, provide a range of resources to help home owners achieve the right ambience lighting. So, let’s break down each of those categories to help you make some wise choices. It’s also important to note that irrespective of the brands you select, the principles are the same.
- Ambient Lighting – Illuminates a whole room evenly and is the basis of all lighting plans. Cool white lighting is often used as it’s brighter and bolder. Warmer and softer lighting often works best in bedrooms and some living areas.
- Task Lighting – Highlights specific parts of a room where tasks and work are being undertaken. This would include focused lighting over work benches in the kitchen, or special lighting over an office/work desk.
- Accent Lighting – Similar to Task Lighting, it focuses on particular features in your home with the intent of sharpening the feel of individual rooms. For example, you may have special artwork or furniture on display with lighting to bring out the colours and tone of each item.
- Decorative Lighting – This is where the lighting itself becomes the focus and is designed to be the focal point of a particular room. It enhances the style and augments the furnishings and decor. (www.clipsal.com)
