Tastefully Amplify The Drama In Your Decor With Concealed Lighting
There are a lot of ways you can add depth and drama to your living space. Sometimes that can be done with dramatic lighting fixtures themselves and other times, you can use creative ways of illuminating your space without needing the help of lighting designs that aren’t too loud. We closely monitored the recent trends, and it was evident that the focus has shifted to the aesthetics from functionality. We aren’t saying that the trends are impractical, but in the end, it should be all about achieving that balance between both the elements. There are many schools of thoughts in the design industry, and while many focus on the design of the lighting fixture, some focus on the lighting aspect alone. And when the lighting fixture itself isn’t truly a priority, hidden lighting comes into the picture.
Hidden lighting or concealed lighting designs can add a warm glow to your space and add an intimate feel to the space. Hidden lighting designs or techniques not only look ravishing but also save a lot of space and money. They can influence the visuospatial perception of your decor and make it appear bigger too. While hidden lighting designs haven’t been in the spotlight for quite some time, we have noticed a considerable shift from the conventional lighting designs to smaller architectural lights like downlights and recessed lights. And we assume that the trend will be prevalent throughout the year.
The White Teak Company brings to you an array of concealed lighting ideas that would add a piquant yet elegant look to your homes and change the way you or anybody looks at your gorgeous abodes forever. There are chances that you may find some of the lighting ideas difficult to retrofit in your decor, but we certainly have enough techniques that are perfect for a well-planned makeover too. Now, sit back and take a look at everything that we have for you.
Enhance The Ambience With Your False Ceiling
The ambience is key to setting the tone of your space, and that’s why you need to choose the designs carefully. False ceilings, tray ceilings, drop soffit ceilings, and similar structures can immensely influence the ambience of your space as they are capable of hiding at least 95% of the lighting designs due to their build. The best part about these structures is that any lighting design placed in the cove remains hidden, and the light bounces off the ceiling and the walls to give your room a warm and comforting glow.
There are many ways you can accentuate the ambience of your living space using a false ceiling. But some of the designs that work best in the space include LED strip lights, LED downlights, LED modules, LED track lights and similar designs. There’s nothing better you can go for, for this space in particular, if you want a neatly concealed lighting layout. These designs are extremely versatile, and in some cases, they can be customised too, especially track lights.
Enliven Your Space By Highlighting Architectural Features
Architectural features can beautifully add depth and dimension to your space with their bold appearance. They are not only capable of becoming exceptional focal points in the space, but they also exude a distinct charm into your decor. You can highlight various features like archways, doorways, columns, blank or textured walls, recessed wall panels, kitchen islands and more. There’s no limit to which architectural features you can highlight in the space. However, you must also take into consideration the colour, texture and reflective capacity of the surface that is to be lit.
You can very well make use of strip lights, track lighting, downlighting, and uplighting and stay discreet with the light sources in your lighting layout. These options will let you add drama to your decor with their low glare and discreet placement. This concealed lighting layout will let the architectural feature be the focal point while giving significant attention to the illumination too.
Add An Intimate Glow To Your Bedside
When it comes to your bedroom, you must really pay attention to the ambient lighting. Ambient lighting lets you set the mood and the tone of the space. Discreetly hidden accent lights, ambient lights, spotlights and mood lights can be considered to add a dreamy yet intimate touch to your bedroom. Recessed lighting designs are quite effective and efficient, and they can bring the best out of your bedroom effortlessly.
A bedroom is a place that should ideally strike the right balance between functionality and aesthetics. And there is absolutely no way that you won’t use conventional primary lighting designs in the space. So you can let your concealed lighting layout complement the primary lighting fixtures in the space. Spotlights, LED strips, track lights and LED panels are just perfect for a space like this, and they not only balance the lighting in the space but also exude a warm yet comforting glow in your bedroom.
A Stroke Of Elegance For Your Stairway
A stairway is usually ignored when it comes to planning the lighting layout of your home. But stairways or your staircases can be instrumental in giving your decor a distinct touch. Illuminating your staircases can add just the depth and drama to your living space, and it can add some grandeur to your decor too.
While stairway lighting is not too complex, you must be careful about a few details. Hidden lighting under each staircase or tread is the best way to illuminate this space. You can use overhead lighting fixtures to complement the ambience, but harsh concentrated lights can leave a few stairs in shadows, which is simply unappealing. LED strip lighting or miniaturised LED panels and modules would do just the job for you. Check out our effervescent and extensive collection of staircase lights right here.
