How Lighting Can Make Or Break A Concept

For instance, having a vision of what you want can be difficult to achieve if you are unable to communicate the ideas. What’s more, aspects that may seem minor such as molding or even a single decorative pillow can actually throw an entire design off significantly. That being said, making sure to flesh out all of your ideas with a designer can benefit your design significantly. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX interior designers take a look at the importance of lighting and shading, and how sub-optimal lighting could break a concept.

Emphasizing the Wrong Things

When you have just gone through an entire process of determining flooring, wallpaper patterns, furniture, and more, it can make the lighting seem like nothing to worry about. Indeed, ensuring every component works together, both functionally and aesthetically can be as grueling as searching for the one perfect combination you have in mind while working through every probable possibility out there. Still, nothing is worse than going through this process and speeding through lighting options just to determine it is out of place from the rest of your design.

When considering your lighting, you will want to take a look at a few different areas. First, the fixtures themselves need to work in a complementary nature to the rest of your design. This includes shape, the material used, color, size, and even brightness. Indeed, if any one of these components is incorrect or not taken into consideration, it can cause a disproportionate emphasis on the wrong aspects and lend itself to misalignment.

Conflicting Ideas

Another complication that can arise from lighting involves conflicting ideas. Take, for example, a room that embodies warmth. Perhaps it is a bedroom that contains a mahogany sleigh bed, rich, deep colors, and a cozy rug that ties it all together. Now imagine your light fixture is not only an off-putting color, but the bulb is a very bright LED that fills every area of the room with white light. In cases such as these, the lighting has thrown the entire design off. To avoid concerns such as these, we aim to work closely with you to help you bring your vision to life in the most ideal manner.
