Lighting Tips for an Open Plan Home

The lighting scheme you choose for a large, open space can completely transform it! It needs to be thought about carefully. Bearing in mind the functionality, aesthetics, and kind of atmosphere that you would like to create. With that being said, lighting the area can be a little more difficult than in a home with divided rooms as you have more elements to think about. For that reason we have teamed up with Inspyer Lighting, lighting design company. They have provided us with some helpful advice to help you plan your indoor lighting effectively.

Layer Lighting

To ensure your lighting is effective and aesthetically pleasing you should consider layering your lighting. This will help you to take advantage of the space you have. And add interest to any high ceilings, coves or texture in the room. Floor lamps and table lamps can introduce an extra level of lighting to the room and make it easier for you too light particular sections of the room at once.

Focal Points

Sure you can create an interesting focal point. With a feature wall of wallpaper, a statement piece of furniture or a stunning piece of art. But have you ever thought about using designer lighting to really draw attention to the room?

Install Dimmer Switches

When designing an open plan room you need to think about a number of different purposes that you will be using the space for. A kitchen/ dining room/ living area you will most likely want to have different levels of light at different times of the day. Dimmer switches can be easily installed to most lights and can help you turn the level right up when cooking yet right down when relaxing and watching tv.

    Lightings can make so much difference. For me, it creates a story in any room. This is the reason why I personally choose the kind of light fixtures we have at home especially inside the bedroom.
