Lighting Open For Open Plan Arrangements

A centrally placed
pendant which gives only the option of solar flare bright or pitch black night,
no longer meets the needs of the modern homeowner. A far more sensible option
is to install spot lights over the main areas of a room or where specific tasks
are undertaken (e.g. kitchen work surfaces, breakfast bar, settees, paintings,
desks or doorways). The spotlights should be fitted with the ability to be
switched on or off independently and a dimmer switch should be used in place of
traditional one. Not only will spotlights lead the eye around the room,
directing attention to the areas you want to be seen (and away from areas you
might not!) but they will help define separate areas therefore making your room
appear larger. The dimmer switches will allow complete control over the mood of
your home meaning the same soft light can provide a reading light, an ambient
mood or a romantic warm setting.

Although highly
adaptable, ceiling spotlights alone cannot make an area truly multifunctional.
Mid and low level lighting such table lamps, floor standing lamps and- for the
more adventurous- floor-set up-lighting, all add another dimension to the
atmosphere of a room and can instantly transform a space. Table and floor lamps
are much less formal and intrusive than conventional ceiling lighting and help create intimacy by effectively lowering the height of a room.
Floor-set up-lighting (basically spotlights upside down) creates much more of a
bar vibe and transforms a room by lighting it from an unusual position and
angle. Again the effect is much less overpowering than ceiling lighting and
when placed along the perimeter of a room, they allow you to navigate your way
around without spoiling nights in with a movie!

Remember, it is not
solely during evening hours that the lighting you choose will have an effect on
the look of your home. Even when switched off, a well chosen floor lamp can add
style and interest to an otherwise minimal space. For example, an original or
modern remake of a design classic such as the Arco lamp by iconic 1960’s
designer Verner Panton, immediately creates an air of retro cool and provides a
striking focal point for a room. AlternativelyComputer Technology Articles, a chandelier (for those lucky
enough to have high ceilings) placed over a dining area adds decadence to any
dinner party and adds to the sense of occasion whilst lowering the light and
helping avoid that cavernous feel.
