Adding ‘daylight’ to a dark room

Filed under: Uncategorized — Bill Noble at 9:43 am on Monday, March 18, 2013

Providing appropriate lighting for a dark room during the day can be a challenge. Ideally the daytime lighting will make the room look as if it doesn’t need daytime lighting! This means the light source should be invisible and the light produced should be cold white, like daylight, and not warm white like conventional filament lamps.

My top three ways to achieve this are:

1. Use concealed LED strips around the edge of the ceiling to wash cold white light across the ceiling.

2. Use trimless wall recessed panels of light that mimic there being a window.

3. Use concealed floor standing uplights to wash cold white light up the walls and onto the ceiling.
