The ceiling is present in every room and yet so often forgotten. Did you know that with lighting, it is possible to showcase it and transform it into a decorative element?

How do you do it? Here are several tips and tricks to sublimate the ceiling.

Pointing the light upwards

First of all, by directing the light upwards, towards the ceiling, it will certainly be more visible and give an original aspect to the room. Indirect lighting is ideal to achieve this goal, whether in the form of LED strips or wall sconces. It is also possible to install suspensions that light upwards instead of downwards, or even both at the same time.

Illuminating a low ceiling

Second, upward-facing lighting can be used to enlarge a room with a low ceiling. Indeed, in some forms, lighting will make a room brighter, but it will also make it look much more spacious! Floor standing lamps are perfect in such a room because they avoid overloading the already oppressive low ceiling. Otherwise, wall lights and indirect lighting are always welcome.

Suspension lights for a cathedral ceiling

Thirdly, if you are lucky enough to have a high ceiling or a cathedral ceiling, suspension fixtures are the perfect choice! With all this space, we can afford oversized suspensions, which will be the stars of the room. They will indeed occupy the space, while conferring a warm atmosphere and an original style. Do not hesitate to hang them low, so that they are a real eye-catcher.

Several functions of this important room must be considered when choosing its lighting. Indeed, the room is used not only for sleeping and resting, but sometimes also for reading, working, exercising, playing, etc. Lighting must therefore be versatile and well adapted.

Adapt your lighting

First of all, there must be general lighting, which must be warm and relaxing, while allowing good visibility. Dimmable lighting is to be preferred, as it will allow the intensity of light to be adjusted according to need and time of day. Ceiling or pendant lights are generally the perfect products to fulfill this function.

Secondly, other light sources, such as accent lamps, will obviously be needed if, for example, you want to do a bit of reading before going to sleep. This second light source must be more direct and less distant. Wall lights above the bed, table lamps or floor lamps are ideal and practical for this purpose.

LED strips for indirect lighting

After having seen what is necessary to have proper lighting, it is time to have some fun and to integrate a bit of madness and originality to our decor and lighting. The room can indeed be sublimated by a huge chandelier, or various elements backlit with LED strips.

LED strips are perfect for creating spectacular backlighting around the bed base, headboard, behind a post, in a wall or in shelves and shelving.

The trend is also towards multiple suspensions, which fill the room and create an intimate and muffled atmosphere by lowering the ceiling. The shape and material of the suspensions will greatly influence the atmosphere. For a relaxed atmosphere, opt for textiles rather than metals and rounded, soft shapes.

Let your creativity flow

In the bedroom, it is more than permissible to mix styles and create a space that is truly to your taste. After all, what room is more personal than this one? So treat yourself to the decoration and lighting, because even though many of the elements have different styles and don’t seem to go well together, the result can be surprising and original.

Office design is changing a lot, and while the emphasis used to be more on productivity, the emphasis is now on atmosphere, originality and vibrant colors.

What kind of atmosphere do you want your offices to have?

Several new trends are emerging in 2021 for the design and decoration of offices and lighting is obviously part of the game!

Modern and colorful office

First of all, the orientation and layout of the space are revisited. Offices are no longer just a place to work and must be able to accommodate a more relaxed atmosphere as well.

Pleasant materials such as wood, velvet and felt will give a certain warmth to the décor and make employees feel calmer and more confident.

Plants can also be a great addition to office decor and atmosphere! Also, the use of color temperature lighting that is warm rather than cold will create a more relaxed atmosphere.

Secondly, you can let yourself go with fashion and style and dare to incorporate unusual elements into the office decor.

For example, huge designer chandeliers, sofas with famous designs, backlights or recessed LED strips with amazing designs, emblematic decorative elementsand etc, are more than welcome. The goal is to capture people’s attention and stimulate them.

Thirdly, spaces dedicated to team building, relaxation and play are becoming more and more popular, and in 2021 will even become one of the arguments used by companies to attract and recruit new talent.

Modern workspace with chairs and pendant lights

From relaxation areas with hammocks to reading corners and various playrooms, lighting is essential! These areas require subdued lighting to create a comfortable atmosphere. Several types of lighting are suitable for this purpose, such as recessed, wall or pendant luminaires.

Finally, environmental friendliness is at the top of the new trends and brings decorations with natural colors and materials. A feeling of comfort often results from the choice of such a decor. The addition of vegetation will make the space infinitely more welcoming and lively, in addition to allowing employees to rest their eyes more.

In addition, the use of ecological or eco-efficient technologies such as LED products is a must!

The trend of recessed lighting

This type of lighting is extremely popular and is now visible everywhere, whether in stores, offices, stores, houses, restaurants, etc.

Several reasons explain this growing popularity.

First of all, recessed lighting offers many advantages. It provides a powerful and uniform lighting, but also creates different atmospheres, specific to certain rooms or work surfaces.

Consider multiple light sources

In order to create stylish lighting, it is possible to combine different types of light sources such as wall sconces, LED strips, recessed lights, tracks, spotlights, backlighting, pendants, etc.

The repetition of light sources and a geometric arrangement of light sources can be used to make the lighting dynamic and quite stunning.

Corridor lighting must still be functional and well distributed. It is preferable to have several light sources. However, there are multiple options to accommodate those with a single wire outlet, such as track lighting or multiple suspensions, among others.

Salle de bains avec un mur fleuri

The lighting of this key room is as important as the rest of the house. It must not only be functional, but it must also be increasingly decorative and original.

The LED for a complete and utilitarian lighting

A well-lit bathroom can be achieved in many ways. A homogeneous light and the absence of shadow corners are recommended. For this, LED lighting is perfect, whatever its form: wall lights, LED strips, recessed, suspended lights, ceiling lights, etc..

Bathroom made of ceramic and wood in a blue color

The space near the mirror should obviously be more illuminated. For this purpose, the use of wall lights or suspended lights is quite common.

Current trends include the backlighting of areas or mirrors, as well as track lighting, which, among other things, allows the light to be directed precisely where it is desired. Moreover, if one has only one light source, making it a rail with several spots solves an important problem of light distribution.

Black bathroom

Finally, we must finally think about the functionality and the technical side of bathroom lighting, because this is the most important. We need enough light to allow us to have an adequate and comfortable vision. We normally try to get as close to daylight as possible. Also, to maximize efficiency, it is best to provide several light sources, according to the needs of each specific space in the room.

Consider waterproof devices

The lighting chosen should also be water resistant or at least steam resistant. It must therefore have a sufficient protection factor. In addition, several safety and installation constraints must be respected, so you should definitely ask for a professional installation for the lighting of this room.

Indirect lighting is invisible lighting that illuminates the walls or ceiling of rooms, on which light is reflected and diffused. It is possible, thanks to this, to create a more convivial and relaxed atmosphere, since indirect lighting is softer and less aggressive. It is also used to enhance or highlight certain architectural details, such as mouldings, beams or false ceilings.
