People ask all the time, what’s the big deal about architectural lighting design? If aesthetics, functionality, energy efficiency, safety, and comfort are essential to you, then you’ll understand the importance of architectural lighting design. Any well-designed home, apartment, or condo incorporates its principles.
The foundation of architectural lighting design blends art and science to create and place lighting to increase the architecture’s aesthetic value and functionality–including energy efficiency, safety, and comfort.
So, you want to light the exterior of your home. In that case, you’d like to show off its beautiful shape and the texture of the exterior walls, or if you have some decorative features outlining your exterior, those should be included in your lighting scheme.
This would automatically add beauty to the exterior of your home; you can tell that safety and comfort are a bonus. The bonus to the already included reward is the curb appeal to the exterior of your home, which adds value to your property. Plain and simple, if everyone knew how important it is to have architectural lighting design schemes to enhance property value, we wouldn’t have to write this blog.
If you have a modest home, use recessed lighting instead of lamps and lighting fixtures in the middle of the room that doesn’t have much lighting output. You can use recessed lighting to focus on your fine artwork, but placement is essential since you don’t want a glaring light reflection in the middle of your artwork. The arrangement and types of lighting bulbs and architectural knowledge are crucial.
