Activities that happen in a particular space, should dictate the type of lighting it requires. Often times, a combination between decorative and functional lighting is the ideal solution.
An overly bright space as well as a space that’s dim is not inviting. Lighting fixtures should be added gradually.
Lighting fixtures create shadows in addition to illumination. Shadows are also important to the ambience of the room as they create movement and add drama to the space.
Light surfaces reflect light better then dark surfaces. The same applies to shiny surfaces versus dull ones. Lighting fixtures are as good as where they are placed.
Lighting fixtures is not a temporary solution. Its reliability, longevity, and user-friendliness should be vital deciding factors.
Lighting fixture can be the focal point of a room as well as put the spotlight on a focal point of the room. Lighting type must be parallel to its functional requirements.
Lighting fixtures with dimmers, that are made from recycled materials and have a degree of consciousness have a greater intrinsic value.
One great looking lighting fixture is always more attractive than a number of mediocre ones. Lighting should be treated as a decorative source with ambient enhancing qualities.
