The beautiful crystals hang from a gleaming chrome canopy and fully adjustable rods like sculpted ice, lit from within by bright halogen bulbs.

Setting the Mood with Lighting - Utah Light Fixtures

Mood Creating Aspects of Lighting

Skillful application of lighting can, more than any other element in the architectural environment, affect the experience of the viewer. Light is an element of design which should be used not only for visual comfort, but also to achieve predetermined emotional responses from the lighted environment.

Through use of lighting patterns of varying levels of illumination, and of color in the light source and in the illuminated object, it is possible to produce certain moods such as: solemnity, restfulness, gaiety, activity, warmth, and coolness. The lamps themselves can be used to dramatize elements of interior design—line, form, color, pattern, and texture.

Higher levels of lighting generally produce cheerful effects and stimulate people to alertness and activity, whereas lower levels tend to create an atmosphere of relaxation, intimacy, and restfulness.

Lighting also can be "soft" or "hard." Soft lighting is diffused light that minimizes harsh shadows and provides a more relaxing and less visually compelling atmosphere. Too much diffused lighting lacks in interest and can make a room dull looking. Careful use of "hard" or direct lighting can provide highlights and shadows, model form, and emphasize texture. Usually, direct lighting is not used as a primary source of illumination, but rather as a supplement. The shine of metal, reflections of crystal, rich texture of other materials, create a sense of aliveness in an environment.

Creating an Atmosphere

Colored lighting can enhance an atmosphere. Certainly color lights are heavily used in stage sets to create moods. In a home, however, they should be applied with much restraint—and be much less intense or saturated. When overdone, colored lights destroy the appearance of materials and people's coloring. A case in point: rosy-tinted lamps can flatter, but red lights wash out redness of lips and cheeks and undo the flattering effect, as can be noted in some nightclubs.

To design a more solemn atmosphere, try using subdued patterns of light but do emphasize dramatic points in the room to avoid a monotonous effect. Use color sparingly.

To achieve a restful effect, use low brightness patterns, no visible light sources, subdued color, dark upper ceiling, low wall brightness. By way of contrast, to develop a sense of alertness and activity, employ high levels of illumination with lighting focused over specific tasks or areas.

For imparting a sense of warmth, use colors at the red end of the spectrum—pink, orange, amber, yellow. And for coolness, use colors at the cool end such as violet, blue, and green. Be aware that blue, blue green, and green detract from the human complexion and, when used indiscriminately, produce ghastly effects. Learn more - lighting and color.

For a mood of gaiety, utilize higher levels of illumination, perhaps with kinetic lighting elements. Positioning lighting fixtures so that rhythms are created by light and shadow, reflections and diffusions, can impart an active dynamic effect to the atmosphere.

One cannot, when dealing with light and thinking about mood effects of light, discount its relationship to color. Light and color are basic human needs. Both are necessary for sound mental health. Deprivation can be harmful.

Producing a Mood with Lighting

Light also is life-giving basic energy for any organic existence. And it affects the rhythmic processes of life—our biological clocks. Man has evolved to perform under eight hours of daylight and sixteen hours of incidental light and near-darkness.

So the room to which we retire, be it bedroom or living room, should have built into the lamp designs lights that emit low levels of illumination. This produces a quiet mood. One extreme experience comes to mind. After leaving the clattering, noisy subway and passing through a doorway that leads directly from the subway to Rockefeller Center, one enters a black marble area where there is dim lighting.

The immediate effect is startling because people tend to suddenly lower their voices to a whisper after competing at shouting levels a moment before. This effect was designed into the environment through the mood created by light and color that induces a hushed, quiet atmosphere.

By way of contrast, to develop a celebrating mood, or a sunny, joyous mood, the sparkle of reflections from objects and bright lights helps to make light of an environment. On the other hand, for a romantic environment, one would employ low levels of lights, tinted on the warm side so that light flatters as it modulates our face and form, much like the feeling one gets when entering a candle lighted room.

Positioning of lights affects the modeling of forms. Side lighting intensifies modeling; front lighting flattens it. Light affects not only the surface and structure, but the ambience.

Lighting in Salt Lake City, Orem, Provo & Online Store




BROWSE BY ROOM

 
BEDROOM
BEDROOM
When lighting a bedroom, it is important to create an overall atmosphere of quiet relaxation, while providing some bright lighting areas for reading and other activities. A combination of general and task lighting that takes into account the age and lifestyle of the occupants is also important. Adding dimming controls will give you flexibility to vary the bedroom lighting to suit different moods and activities.
DINING ROOM
DINING ROOM
Dining room lighting should be both beautiful and functional. This is best accomplished by using a combination of task, ambient and accent lighting. These various layers of lighting establish the mood for a variety of functions, including dining, homework or family bookkeeping. Dimming controls will enable you to vary the light for each function.
 
FAMILY / GREAT ROOM
FAMILY / GREAT ROOM
Whether you use these rooms for entertaining, watching television, reading, or playing games, three to four layers of lighting should be used. These might include recessed lighting at the perimeter of the room, a chandelier or central decorative fixture for general lighting, wall sconces for mood and lamps for reading and other tasks. Use dimmers whenever possible for maximum control of all fixtures.
ENTRY / FOYER
ENTRY / FOYER
In the entrance foyer, general lighting is needed to welcome guests and provide safety. This can be furnished by a decorative ceiling fixture, such as a large pendant light, that emits a generous spread of light. If more light is needed, consider placing matching wall sconces on either side of a foyer mirror.
 
GAME ROOM
GAME ROOM
Proper lighting in a home theater or game room area requires a mix of ambient and accent lighting to enhance your viewing, prevent eyestrain and make the room practical to move around in after the movie or for other activities.

For general lighting, recessed light fixtures operating via a dimmer provide soft ambient lighting that will let you see your snacks without distracting from the movie. Another option is to install wall sconces or track lighting to provide a glow along the home theater room's walls.
HALLWAY
HALLWAY
For safety, hallways should be illuminated every 8 to 10 feet. You can do this with flush-mount ceiling fixtures, wall sconces, recessed fixtures or track lighting. Movable track fixtures can provide the general lighting you need for safety, while allowing you to accent any artwork or family photos to steer the eye.

Stairs should be lighted from top to bottom to prevent accidents, with switches at both ends for convenience. If hall and foyer lighting fixtures do not illuminate the entire stairway, you may consider adding a chain-hung or close-to-ceiling fixture above the stairs.
 
KITCHEN
KITCHEN
In today's world, the kitchen is often the center of family activity. Kitchen Lighting requirements depend on the size and complexity of the kitchen space. While the kitchen is primarily a work area, it may also be used for dining or as a gathering place for family and friends. Small kitchens may require only a central ceiling fixture and task lighting tucked under a cabinet. More elaborate kitchens will demand a blend of general, task and accent lighting.
LIVING ROOM
LIVING ROOM
The living room is the most important room in the house because it's usually the place the family spends the most time. There are many different uses for the room, so it's important to make sure you have the appropriate lighting.

There's actually a proven formula for calculating the proper amount of general light (usually expressed as the number of watts) you should have in each room or area of your home . . . and it's not difficult, just some basic arithmetic.

Multiply the length times the width of the room. Then, multiply that number times 1.5. That gives you the amount of wattage you need to light the room properly for general illumination. Example: A room is 12 ft. x 16 ft. (12 x 16 = 192). Then multiply 192 x 1.5 = 288 watts. That means an 8-light chandelier using 40-watt bulbs would give 320 watts, which is even more light than needed.

For specific task lighting in areas where stronger light is needed, multiply the area's square footage by 2.5 rather than 1.5 to find the needed wattage. A kitchen work island or a desk area where schoolwork is done are examples of task areas in your home. Instructions provided by Kichler Lighting.
 
OFFICE / DEN
OFFICE / DEN
Whether you work full time out of your home office or just use it as a space to pay the bills, surf the web, or as a quiet space for the kids to do their homework, a well lit workspace is essential to reduce glare and make your tasks easier. Floor and table lamps work well in these areas as they are highly configurable to your furniture arrangement as these rooms tend to be re-configured frequently.
OUTDOOR / PATIO
OUTDOOR / PATIO
Outdoor lighting greatly enhances the curb appeal of your property while providing safety and security. Outdoor lighting also allows you to take advantage of your outdoor spaces after dark and adds value to your home.
