Interior Lighting Design Ideas
Famous Estonian architect Louis Khan said that;
“The sun never knew how great it was until it hit the side of the building”
It is a wonderful quote to emphasize the importance of light for designing and styling. Light has always been very important for architects and designers. When you visit magnificent structures of history, you can immediately notice the design and placing of the windows. And of course, their wonderful effects inside.
One of the most important issues of designing a structure or building is placing the windows. Also, size is very important. If you make a mistake, some parts may stay dark inside. This may cause other problems like molding in the future.
On the other hand, lighting for night times is also very important. Chandeliers were first used in churches of Europe at the end of the 9th century. The word chandelier comes from the French word chandelle which has the meaning of candle. They were just wooden beams in the shape of a horizontal cross that hold animal fat candles at the ends.
It soon appeared in the houses of the working-class back in the 16th and 17th centuries. Then the use of good quality candles made them luxury items. After the developments in the production techniques, complicated golden coated chandeliers became an element of wealthiness and nobility in rich people’s houses.
Today, chandeliers are still common, but modern designing styles changed everything. Different designing styles define the shape, type, or direction of the light. So what to pay attention to when designing lighting? We will talk about this right now.
What to Consider When Designing Lighting
As we mentioned before, first, you should consider using the light in the right way. You should decide about;
- The purpose of the room (living room or bedroom etc.)
- The angle of the light,
- The right height of the light source,
- The energy consumption,
- The type of light (traditional, led, or others).
We recommend using energy-efficient lights like LED or CFL. High-luminescent lights may strain the eyes and consume more energy. So you should hide light sources as much as possible. You should reflect the light on the walls and ceilings instead of the floor.
Living Room Lighting Ideas
Normally, big chandeliers are suitable for living rooms. And there are so many types and kinds of lighting elements. You can decide according to the size and the decoration style of the room. Or you can choose an upper light source to make a change and have a luxurious view. You can use LED lines in your bookshelves to create a smooth mood.
Kitchen Lighting Ideas
Kitchens became very important parts of our homes according to modern city life. They are not just the places that we just eat. As BST Design Company, we create great kitchen remodeling projects.

These lights are also beneficial for lighting countertops.
Lighting for Other Parts
