Interior decoration has slowly but steadily evolved into a branch of design science which is these days independently practiced as a profession all over the world. Among the constituents of décor the most important yet most underrated is lighting. People concentrate on furniture, curtains; bed covers with more gusto than they look at the lighting fixtures. This is partially because of the ignorance and partially due to the lack of promotion or attention that these modern lighting fixtures get. In this blog, we will look into the diverse items of stylish and modern lighting designs.
These are the most traditional and most integral component of any room’s lighting regime. The traditional flowing designs have gone through many a change over the years and the chandeliers have become more and more contemporary and sometimes fluidly abstract. Chandeliers are the center pieces which act as a fulcrum for the entire lighting paradigm of a room and depending upon the desired intensity of illumination the chandeliers have been designed with many forms and patterns.
These fixtures have the capacity of serving as both decorative and task lighting. A modern table lamp can be a regal showpiece if placed properly and can simultaneously serve as a task light if the size and style of the light is so decided. A designed environment can really become complete with proper use of table lamps as it serves both functional and ornamental purposes.
Floor lamps are the newest addition in the line of contemporary lighting and it serves mainly as a decorative accent lighting fixture. There are varieties of floor lamps available that can be put into use in a domestic interior format or in professional setups like gallery pathways etc. quite successfully.
Track lights are the most prominent example of accent lighting. These are most commonly used in situations where lighting or rather highlighting a valuable possession is the main purpose. Apart from that, highlighting corridors or alleyways is also done by such track lighting (interiordec.about.com/od/lighting/a/Gtracklighting.htm).
These are the most contemporary and most stylish form of lighting fixture of the lot and can be fixed anywhere in the wall with relative ease depending upon the position and propensity of illumination required.
Bathroom lighting fixtures
It has often been seen that bathrooms are neglected the most as far as the concentration of lighting is concerned. These are creatively made and can be functionally placed so that the light is free from getting affected by the water. These fixtures can be used to illuminate the bath tub or highlight the basin and the mirror attached to that.
These small yet trendy lights largely serve the purpose of decoration and not so much the objective of illumination. But these light fixtures can become functionally effective at places where natural dimming of light is the main agenda.
Illuminating the driveways or patios need relatively dimmer lighting patterns that will not consume much energy even if are kept on for the entire night or so.
These lights have found regular use in studies and workstations where concentration and focus is of utmost importance. Though these lights serve a purely functional aspect its decorative quotient also goes high as they are available in different trendy and sleek avatars.
Swing arm wall lamps
These can be used for adding lights to the rocking chairs or bedsides for reading before bedtime purposes.
With proper use of all these fixtures, the entire modern lighting regime of a room can be made the most functionally effective, yet succinctly impressive.
