5 Bright Ways to Use Linear Lighting for Interiors April 29 2016, 0 Comments
Linear lighting is one of the basic forms of industrial lights. You see it everywhere; this long, horizontal light is practically used in kitchens and workplaces, whenever task lighting is required. Because of its adaptive design, it can easily be aligned along with other forms of lights, or independently shine on its own. The simplistic nature of this light never goes out of style, which is why many designers and homeowners make use of it, even as of today.
But other than its aesthetic value, linear lighting offers so much more. It presents energy efficiency—as most lights utilize LED and CFLs, it minimizes your home's carbon footprint, as well as your utility bills. Maintenance is easy; bulbs are easily replaced with the many options available in the market. Choose bright white lights if you're using it in busy workplaces, or an ambient glow to produce an interesting effect on your furniture, or on the wall.
Now that you’ve heard all about linear lighting and what it can do, you now ask, is it right for your interior needs? Here are some ideas to spark up that linear lighting inspiration for your home.
Looking for ways to brighten up your kitchen? How about a linear lighting suspended above your cosy nook? You get a stylish task lighting that harmoniously blends in your interior, without overpowering the colours and theme. This wooden suspended light just gives the right amount of texture and hue, but if you want something more industrial looking, how about a LED tube linear light that fits modern kitchens, or a suspended fluro light that mixes well with any design?
Fill Me In
Showcase your beloved pictures and collection with a well-lit feature wall! The linear light subtly brings the spotlight onto the curated items. This is one way to bring life back to your dull wall or shelving area.
We are all used to having linear lights above our heads, but this design breaks the code and gets away with it nicely! A bar brilliantly makes use of linear lighting on its wooden wall, creating a vibrant, youthful glow that makes the space more fun and entertaining. Alongside this interesting installation, linear lights are added atop and below the wall's crevices, creating a floating feeling. How's that for an interior?
Zig it, Zag it
The designers of this workspace have decided to strip the walls off its boredom and created a wild, imaginative look, with the help of linear lighting. Here, you’ll see apertures brightly filled in with lights, creating distinct, moving shapes—perhaps triggering the imagination of a Star Wars aficionado, with the light sabre slash. This creates a fresh, new atmosphere to an otherwise tedious setting, keeping employees inspired while at work.
Who says linear lighting is limited to horizontal use? An interior design firm created a dazzling light work by vertically hanging linear light tubes. The idea is perfect for big spaces—it creates a dangling illusion, akin to stars falling down in the night sky. Despite making use of a simple, inexpensive lighting, an elegant effect is produced; all thanks to creativity and imagination.
Who can say that linear lighting is boring? With the right vision, you can create a stunning interior with the aid of this minimalist, simple light.
