Lighting designed is about choosing and positioning the correct lighting within your home or business. You will need to consider aspects like the function of the room and the atmosphere you are want to create.
Residential Lighting Design
There are many rooms within houses all of which have different uses. It is important that the lighting is appropriate for the intended use.
A kitchen is going to require different lighting requirements to that of a spare room,office, dining room or lounge. A kitchen needs to be bright so that you can easily see what you are doing, a office needs to be bright enough to work in, but not too bright as to cause glare and headaches, a lounge needs to be ambient and relaxing and have good lighting for watching TV. As you can see, it is not as simple as choosing your light fittings and bulbs.
Outdoor lighting is another important sector of lighting design to consider. You may wish to have lighting for a courtyard along with security lighting by the front door.
Commercial Lighting Design
Lighting design in a commercial workplace is very important. What you are trying to achieve in your business is going to influence the lighting design requirements. Retail lighting design can be used not only to remove darkness, but to draw customers into the store. Lighting design can also be used for promotions and displays and to highlight important areas of a store.
In contrast to this bright lighting a restaurant is going to have very different requirements. An intimate restaurant will want to have welcoming, ambient lighting whilst providing enough lighting for waiters to work in. In the kitchen there will be a requirement for a lot of light without causing additional heat within the working space.
Lighting design also incorporates exit and emergency lighting requirements for commercial businesses.
