Our well-being and the room atmosphere can be positively influenced by light, because only with the right light can a room develop its full effect. Light can attract attention, have a calming and relaxing effect or aesthetically highlight an object. In addition to daylight, you can install sophisticated indirect lighting or directional lighting sources to set interesting accents in the room. Good planning is essential here, because there are different lighting requirements depending on the function of the room. Today we are going to give you a few tips and ideas on how to create inviting and attractive rooms with light.

Combination of direct and indirect lighting

the Lighting design gives a room the finishing touch and creates the right room atmosphere. The times when lighting was limited to switching lamps on and off are long gone. Nowadays it is an important design element. We combine different light sources and experiment with colors and light levels to create the right mood for every activity. Cool, stronger and direct light, for example, provides stimulation, while weak, warm and indirect light provides comfort.

When designing a room with light, you should consider how much light you need for what and in which space. Spotlights and spots can be staged very specifically and can also be integrated very easily into ceilings. Instead, you can use hidden lights and LED strips to implement atmospheric and unusual lighting ideas. The rule of thumb is: one works for ideal lighting Mixture of three different light sources preferably.

Ideas for lighting accents in the living room

The living room is usually the largest room and the focal point of the home environment. People watch TV, read, play with the children here. The requirements for living room lighting are very different and only a centrally placed ceiling light can usually not meet them. That is why we recommend several light sources that are distributed in the room.

Suspended drywall ceilings, light coves and styrofoam profiles, for example, offer excellent opportunities for creative lighting design in the living room. This can be used to reduce room heights or conceal installations and insulation. Professional lighting designers often work with light-dark contrasts and combine LED strips and recessed spots to create a breathtaking effect in the room. The built-in spots are built directly into the plasterboard, while the LED strip is hidden in the ceiling structure. The ceiling then seems to literally float, while the targeted light from the spots shines downwards. Drywall also offers many options for modern interior construction such as wall niches and TV walls, which can also be illuminated by built-in spots.

Spotlights in the hallway for optimal illumination


The hallway is usually a narrow passage area and often has no windows, which is why lighting is of particular importance. The hall lighting should convey an inviting atmosphere and illuminate the entire room evenly. For example, multiple-flame emitter and spot systems can ensure optimal visibility. They are highly functional thanks to their extreme rotation and swiveling ability and can also be used as Lighting for art can be used. A long hallway provides the perfect setting for a gallery with paintings, family photos, or contemporary photographs. The advantage of LED lighting is that it provides sufficient brightness to emphasize all the subtleties of the works of art, without causing any damage to the works. In this way, pictures, sculptures or even pieces of jewelry can be effectively highlighted. With a four-spot, for example, two lights can be directed to the wall and the other two spots, on the other hand, can illuminate the path to the other rooms.

Relaxed light and indirect lighting in the bedroom

The bedroom is a place of rest and relaxation, where we can relax after a hectic day at work. In addition to general lighting, light is advisable on the bed for reading, on the mirror and for the closet. The best way to create a really relaxed, cozy atmosphere in the bedroom is through indirect lighting. LED light strips bathe the room in a soft glow and make furniture appear to be floating. They can be easily and quickly attached to the underside of cupboards, under beds, in niches and even behind the television. The brightness is then reflected off the walls and floors and creates wonderful effects.

Light planning for the kitchen

Optimal light is required in the kitchen: bright when preparing food, cozy when eating and effective when guests come to dinner. That is why LED strips and indirect lighting are also becoming increasingly popular in the kitchen. With LED under-cabinet lights on kitchen cabinets, the work area can be illuminated well and without shadows, while LED strips hidden in the ceiling and wall create atmospheric permanent light.

Indirect lighting for a pampering bathroom

Different lighting moods are also required in the bathroom. For daily personal hygiene and cosmetics, it has to be functional, but sometimes really romantic. When things have to go fast in the morning, LED recessed spots on the ceiling provide friendly, clear light. With good mirror lighting, make-up or eyebrow plucking can quickly become a matter of luck. In the evening, when you want to forget the hustle and bustle of everyday life, indirectly lit LED strips provide warm, flattering light and create the perfect atmosphere for a pampering bath.
