Depending on the type of room that needs light fitting, lighting can greatly improve the atmosphere of the space. Whether it’s a cinema room, lounge area, kitchen or games room, lighting can make all the difference. Indoor installation is heavily centred around up, down and wall lighting. It is important that downlighting is kept to a minimum and utilised to enhance key features or focal points of the room. Uplighting is great alternative to that of downlighting and provides an extra layer of light to your room. This extra layer alters the perception of space and can be used to make the room appear larger.
Cinema rooms, for example, can benefit from a low light solution, maintaining the integrity of the darkness required for prime media viewing. It is important therefore to consider low intensity, cosmetic options to improve the atmosphere. This could include a low intensity flush LED strip in a blue or deep red which surrounds a feature of the room such as a shelf or seating area. Twinkly, star like lighting on the ceiling can also help to create a welcoming comfortable area.
Games rooms and lounges can greatly benefit from up and down lighting to make the space appear larger. LED spotlights provide a great downlighting solution, in a games room focusing attention in the room to a pool table or air hockey set up and keeping it well-lit for its users. Kitchens can make great use of the various cupboards, tables and hidden spaces. Flush LED strips, positioned discretely where the actual fitting is hidden from sight, creates a popping out effect, modernising and adding another dimension to the space.
Outdoor lighting can make for a fine addition to an outdoor setting, giving it character and enhancing the best features. Waterproofing, durability and greater intensity are required given the often wet and unpredictable nature of UK weather. Consideration of the wiring route is also key in the planning stage of outdoor installation. Outdoor lighting can be beneficial when used well in gardens and patios, house walls and swimming pools.
Promoting the garden and patio space can be achieved through high quality lighting options such as LED spikes. These sit within the flowerpots or other plants, focusing attention towards their complexity and uniqueness. Other options include LED strips that can fit around patio or swimming pool edges, up-down lights to add a further dimension to outer house walls and fairy lights to add a beautiful touch to the atmosphere. Deck, tree and path lighting are also popular and sought-after solutions.Outdoor lighting installation should be carried out or checked by a qualified professional to ensure that the fitting, wiring and weather resistance is safe.
