Tips and Trends for the Use of Lighting in Environments

The ambient lighting is as important as the furniture and decorative items, since it enhances the interior design project. Therefore, before starting the project, it is important to define what is the purpose of each space, whether for work, read, relax or sleep. In addition, it is necessary to position correctly the light fixtures, which can reflect light unduly on the television screen, for example.

According to the consultant architect of Telhanorte, César Augusto Pasquini, the central light of the environment should be stronger, as it creates a harmonious setting. Already built-in lamps, like spots, wall sconces, columns and lamps are suitable for a social gathering, as they create a play of light signals.

“Direct or indirect lightings are the most traditional and have as main function the scattering of light by the entire environment so homogeneous. The difference is that in direct lighting, the light is directed downwards, while in indirect lighting, brightness is facing the ceiling, reflecting on the environment. Task lighting is already used for a particular activity, a time that has focus, indicated to read or to make meals, “says Caesar.

For the choice of the type of lamp to the environments, Caesar tells us that in the kitchen, color lighting is more used because it does not distort the colors, leaving the lighter atmosphere. “Already in the room and in the living room, it is possible to use more yellow and warm lighting, which leaves the environment cozier, though less clear and the colors more distorted,” she adds.

“Currently, the white lamp has been highly sought after by consumers for use in various areas of the House,” says the architect. As the environments are very integrated, as the kitchen with the living room, and also with multiple functions, such as room and Office, the white light is ideal, because it standardizes the environment, “says the architect.

From the point of view of energy efficiency, LED lamps from are also featured in the lighting sector. In addition to low power consumption, the useful life is superior in comparison with traditional lamps. Another relevant factor is the multiplicity of uses of the model LED, which can compose the environment in various ways, be around decorative accessories, such as lowered ceilings of plaster, in the form of Panel, for example.
