Direct and Indirect LightingDirect and Indirect Lighting

Direct lighting

Direct lighting, as the name implies, focuses light directly on a surface. The ideal is to use when you need a reinforcement for activities that need more focus and visibility.

Some examples where you can use is at the head of the bed, to read; on the table in the Office or on the countertop where cooking dinner in the kitchen. Can use in spots, pendants, table lamps, table lamps or floor.

Avoid using direct light on bright surfaces, like mirrors, glass, marble and varnish.

The direct light is also often used as accent light to draw attention to parts of decoration, such as paintings, sculptures, etc.

The choice of technology can make a difference, because incandescents, halogen, dicroicas and electronics can damage the object illuminated. The LED has the advantage because it does not heat the environment and does not emit infrared and ultraviolet rays, so it changes the color of the objects.

Indirect lighting

The indirect lighting is one in which the light falls on a surface to be reflected and reach the point to be lit. Lightens the environment smoothly and evenly, making the environment more cozy.

It is common to use a combination of several fixtures (sconces, lamps, columns, crown moldings) with discrete foci that do not create shadows. Typically, they emit the light up, in order to avoid shadows and glare. Wall sconces and spots placed in plaster are options to get this kind of effect and bring an intimate air.

Use only indirect light can leave the dark environment, therefore, the combination of lamps is essential to avoid visual discomfort and leave the functional environment.

The variety of halogen models makes them the most used for indirect lighting, but must be planned so that heat and light fixtures. LED technology already provides a wide range of products with quality, high durability and versatility.

Harmony in integration

The perfection of lighting in an environment is not attained when using only direct or indirect lighting, but when you use the direct and indirect light. Reconcile both provides a nice atmosphere, each with your purpose.
