Marisa Cole. Lighting. August 19th , 2017.
In the garden, lights can really make the space come alive. Having lights in the trees and lights near to a table will ensure you can eat outside all year round (subject to the temperature of course!) Another aspect of outside lighting is for security purposes. Having a light that comes on when there is motion nearby can be a very effective deterrent for anyone wishing to break into your home. Being lit up, the house can be clearly visible from all around and this makes it much less likely to be targeted by burglars. Interior lighting can also work as a good security measure. Leaving a few lights on around the home that are clearly visible from outside makes the house appear to be occupied so think about this when planning your home lighting too.
This lighting is very popular in modern homes as it hides the fixtures and provides an effect that is dramatic. It can be directed towards the ceiling or down the wall providing a washing effect. Cove lighting can be found in commercial setting as well as in residential homes.
Consider the size of your kitchen and then identify areas where you need task lights. If you have a kitchen island, you will definitely want pendant lights over it. The size of the pendant must be in relative to the island size.
LED extrusions help in stable mounting. Aluminum profiles can be embedded in a floor to provide a unique architectural experience or can be used as down light. There is LED profile that is used in signage and wattages of medium application. It has high strength and is light weight. LED strips come with 3 year warranty and can be easily installed. It can be used in ceiling cove lighting, decorative lighting and under cabinet lighting.
In cove lighting the fixtures are hidden and what counts is the way the light is spread on the ceiling or the walls. It can provide form and function. The aluminum casing of low profile works as a cove and the optics offer unplanned uniform lighting for corridor and office application. If there is a recess or cove present then asymmetric lighting solution with adjustable aiming can be used.
