Why Light and Shadows Are Equally Important in Home Design

Lighting is an essential element of great architecture. It is key to designing beautiful homes and workplaces. At Superdraft, our designers focus on the proper orientation of the building to ensure it catches the right amount of natural light. We take the morning and afternoon sun into consideration, as well as the direction of the sun's rays as the seasons change. Of course, light forms shadows. In all design projects, lighting should create blissful shadows that animate the space. It should not make the place look uncomfortable, dull, and gloomy. In this blog, we'll explain why light and shadows are equally important in designing spaces.

How light and shadow affect daily life

We can't take light and shadows for granted. Design concerning light and shadows makes any room dynamic. Imagine seeing the same space in different lighting at different times of the day. Light and shadow add interest to the area.

When you wake up in the morning, we see and feel the warmth of the sun as we prepare for a new day. At night, a soft and relaxing lighting gives us peace. Light and shadows lift our mood.

Prioritise lighting design

At Superdraft, we prioritise the lighting design in every project. The protocol is to design based on the needs per room to ensure the functionality of the area. There has to be a mixture of natural, ambient, task, and accent lighting.

The shadows created by the light shouldn't hinder you from using the space, but it must leave a significant aesthetic impact. It should make the area more interesting. Let's create homes and workplaces with striking interiors. Contact us today and tell us about your project. We'd love to help you out! Follow Superdraft on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
