Lighting Schemes

There are six kinds of light to choose from here. Take a look at the following examples of trendy interior lighting designs:

UPLIGHTS

These are wall-mounted or floor-mounted. Set the former somewhat above the eye-line to cast a glow onto a ceiling, the latter to create a striking highlight to any feature.l element. Check heat output for a floor lamp. Make sure a ceiling is pristine if you wish to light it; flaws can jump out in a very obvious way.

DOWNLIGHTS

Recessed into a ceiling, these can be downwards-directed or directional. Low voltage lights are brighter and whiter than mains lights. Wide beams can cover 12-50 degrees.

WALL WASH LIGHTS

Surface or recessed, very effective for textured surfaces.

DECORATIVE LIGHTS

Effective from a ceiling or wall, but beware using a pendant lamp on a low ceiling.

DISCREET LIGHTING

This is a concealed  form of illumination that hides the source. Works very well with cabinet interiors, bookshelves, over units, and so on. This is a good method of creating warmth and mellowness.

LAMPS

These can be stood on tables or floors. Use a translucent shade for a softly diffused light, an opaque shade for a more solid beam.
