Good lighting in a white interior design can make all the difference between making your spaces look neat, warm and welcoming, in contrast to just plain old stark and frigid. This is why it’s crucial to understand what type of lighting is going to work best in such spaces. So, today we’ll be taking a close look at how you can design lighting for a white-themed interior design. Let’s take a look:
1. Warm ambient lighting
Ambient lighting is what gives us general visibility in a space. It consists of the downlighters that are installed in the ceiling at regular intervals. So, while designing ambient lighting for white hued spaces, it’s important to select light fixture that emit warm temperature incandescence. This basically means that the actual light has to be warm (golden, inviting and a little bit like the sun) to leech away the coldness of a white space.
2. Adding style
Aesthetics are always a priority in a white themed interior design, and you can certainly contribute to them with the help of good lighting. A stylish light fixture that can be hung as the centerpiece can add an unfettered grace and charisma to a simple white hued interior. It’s even better if the actual light fixture is visible from the underbelly as well.
3. Recessed lighting
Using recessed lighting in furniture of a white themed interior design helps add depth to the whole setting. It can be done in the form of toe kicks or media walls or even under cabinet lighting. It’s best to have a white backdrop and foreground to make the lighting even more impactful in such designs.
4. Ceiling cove lights
Installing cove lights at the edges of ceilings in a white themed interior design can add a lot of definition to your spaces. They also contribute to the overall ambiance by making the lines seem as stark and visible as possible, so that your spaces don’t seem blurry and muffled.
5. Stylish under-cabinet lighting
Whether it’s a bathroom vanity or a kitchen cabinet, such lighting definitely has a huge impact on white interiors. Its looks even more stunning when you’re experimenting with various colours of white in the same space.
