Despite the advances in lighting technology and the introduction of some of the most efficient light sources of all times, the LED light; there can never be the same feel to a place as with the most natural sources of light. Even the dim moonlight has a throw effect often not produced by the most powerful or the most expressive of light sources.
How to create the right look and feel to space with light
The best efforts at producing artificial means of lighting, try to mimic the way natural sources of light would illuminate an area than anything else. Light does affect the mood of the person as also his performance at work or even his behavior at home. So it is essential to have not just the proper lighting but the appropriate one for the room or premise.
How to accentuate the naturally occurring light
There are some innovative ways to utilize the natures light sources to the most extent. While some of the solutions would sound expensive, there are some affordable ways to extend the light to the most shadowed out interiors. The prime focus would be to allow the best use of the naturally occurring light sources as they do not cost anything to create.
Reflecting in the light
This could be one of the most effective as well as one of the most affordable means of focusing the external light sources into the room. It does not have to be a mirror that is used to direct in the light but even a brightly painted surface could be sufficient. One of the simple ways to reflect in the sun is to paint the insides of the outer perimeter walls in bright white or light shade.
Modern paints have introduced coating materials that tend to reflect the light a good deal as compared to the normal ones. Thus the paint serves the purpose of protecting out a structure from the naked elements and at the same time helps direct the external light to the interiors of buildings.
Wider windows and doors
By using as wide a window to a room as possible, it is possible to allow more light into space. It would also help to use clear glass to cover the windows as it helps to let in the most amount of light. In case minor corrections have to be made to the composition of the light, it can be done by using an appropriate shaded glass. With the kind of choice available in the window panes, this is instead an effective way to control the lighting of interior rooms and a very cost-effective one too.
Arranging the room to let in the most light
Most of the rooms in any building would have the furniture to suit the uses of the spaces. It is possible to control the way light falls on the furniture and how it gets further transmitted in the room by using the furniture to good effect. Here it is the imaginative arrangement of the settings that counts to better control of the natural light.
