Lighting Design Principles In A Nutshell

Creating a smooth, uniform lighting theme with no abrupt transitions from light to shadow can be achieved through installing a number of smaller lights. Playing with tall pillars, combining lighting elements, bollards and built-in lighting fixtures, you can create a dynamic lighting system capable of covering the entire area: from the treetops and roofs of the cottage to the pool or flowerbeds. Street lighting experts are trying to cover all possible genres, offering lamps of country, Empire, Baroque, Art Nouveau and even Victorian street lighting styles. Therefore, the collections of the German, Italian and UK factories are typically represented by myriads of highly-functional lamps, suitable for the most intricate designs. Consider the option of acquiring forged fittings that resonates with lines and shadows and look stunningly beautiful. Just like in fashion industry, lighting design offers its own tendencies and trends virtually each season to complement the most exquisite terrace designs.

Fitting the lighting fixtures into the landscape is a walk in the park mission when light fixtures, invisible in daylight, e.g. one of the heritage street lighting units by Metcraft, are installed. However, you can resort to another option: choose the lamps with independent artistic value. In this case remember that the design of the fixtures goes with the overall architectural style of suburban land.

When combining light installations of different shapes and designs, do not forget about the overall harmony of the area and do your best to avoid imbalance issues. When modeling the open space lighting area filled with heterogeneous objects, don’t miss the most important thing: the light should provide comfort; and if you feel comfortable, be sure that everything is done correctly.
