How to balance aesthetics and functionality when creating lighting solutions

Lighting basics for kitchens and bathrooms

A successful lighting solution can make or break a kitchen or bathroom design. 

Lighting plays a vital role in the way people experience a room. It can dictate what a room feels like – it creates a mood. 

However, there is a balance between the aesthetics and the functionality of the lighting. As a designer you must consider lighting solutions that not only enhance the visual appeal of a room but also enable people to complete tasks in the busiest rooms of a home.

Hear from our lighting and design expert as she shares her industry knowledge including the best way to incorporate ambient, task or accent lighting into your next kitchen or bathroom design. 

In this webinar we will explore

  • Types of lighting to give layers and depth to your kitchen or bathroom, including ambient, task and accent lighting.
  • How direct lighting and indirect lighting can create different ambiences.
  • Various types of fixtures and how to incorporate them into a project when theming a space.
  • Lumens, lux and kelvin and how they impact on the overall lighting solution.
