Architectural lighting is a type of lighting that illuminates the inside and outside of buildings. It’s used to accentuate the features of a space and to make it more visible at night or in poor lighting conditions. Our range of affordable architectural lighting can be used for both functional and aesthetic purposes.
What are the different types of architectural lighting?
Many different types of architectural lighting can be used to achieve several practical effects. Some of the most common types of architectural lighting include:
Ambient lighting — This type of lighting provides general illumination to a space. It’s typically used in combination with other types of lighting to create a moody atmosphere, among other desired effects. LED neon lighting is an exceptional example of a contemporary statement as it frames a space.
Task lighting — This type of lighting provides focused light on a specific area. It’s best for task-oriented spaces such as kitchens and workshops. LED track lights work perfectly in this use case.
Accent lighting — This type of lighting highlights specific features of a space. It is perfect for artwork or architectural features. Spotlights do this well.
Security lighting — Strong lights are often used to deter crime, enable inclusive access to areas for the whole community and provide illumination for security cameras.
How can I choose the right type of architectural lighting for my building?
Many different factors need to be considered when choosing the right type of architectural lighting for a space — these include:
The size of the space — When looking to light an area appropriately, it’s essential to consider how much illumination you’ll need. The type of lighting will need to suit the size of the area. For example, task lighting will be more suitable for larger spaces.
The type of space — The function of your room will also dictate the type of lighting that is used. For example, accent lighting would be more appropriate for a communal room, while security lighting would be more appropriate for an outdoor area.
The budget — Your budget will determine how many lighting fixtures you can install and the designs available in that range. Fortunately, Starco Lighting has an entire range of affordable architectural lighting for many uses.
