There is not one single answer, as several factors apply. Do you want to create an emotional space that speaks to your design? Learn what creates the ultimate lighting plan and what is required to light both kitchens and bathrooms.

 

When we look a space, 80% of what we view is at eye level. The light draws the eye and sets the tone of our perception of the room. Do your clients prefer darker, more intimate spaces, or are they happy to relax in a brighter room? We will connect the emotional interaction within both natural and artificial light sources.

 

Discover how to utilize lighting effects, manage lighting layers and capture the essence of both architecture and interior elements. Prepare to feel enlightened and energized to shine your design with confidence.

 

At the end of this session you will:

 

Identify how to determine the amount of light required for kitchens and bathrooms.

Discuss layouts and lighting applications.

Define the emotional interaction with natural and artificial light design.

We are in a lighting revolution where keeping up with technology and the changes to lighting can be overwhelming. What is new in lighting and how should we be designing it into our kitchens and bathrooms?

 

Lighting is important to enhance the finishes you choose. Reflective surfaces can be challenging as glare may become a factor. This is also important from a wellness perspective.

 

How are we lighting spaces differently with all the screen time occurring in our home environments? What are the latest trends we are seeing in kitchen and bath lighting functionally as well as aesthetically? How does the color of light impact our finishes in positive or negative ways?

 

This session will focus on understanding all of these concepts and having the ability to design and implement them into kitchen and bath projects.

 

At the end of this session you will:

 

Define basic lighting terminology and what types of lighting are currently being offered.

Identify and describe the various layers of light used to illuminate a kitchen and/or bath.
