LIGHTING IDEAS TO CONSIDER IF YOU ARE REDECORATING THIS DIWALI


Diwali is one the most significant festivals of India. The ‘festival of lights’ as its popularly called, sends most Indian households into a redecoration or renovation tizzy. People like to welcome Goddess Laxmi and Lord Ganesha into a fresh, clean and sparkling household that will attract prosperity and joy. Re-doing the décor by changing the lighting or doing some creative DIYs with lights adds a fresh dimension to the festive look. From fuzzy soft lights, strategically placed LED bulkheads to twinkling LED strip lights, here are some interesting lighting ideas to use LED lighting products for the purpose of redecoration:

1. LANTERNS AND OUTDOOR PENDANT LAMPS
Turn your outdoor space or balcony into a welcoming and roomy set up for Diwali parties or get-togethers by adding small couches, table tops and cushy seating. Illuminate the space by adding pendant lamps and lanterns. They don’t just look trendy but can also be customised to suit your mood- be it boho, oriental or ethnic.

2. ADD A CONCEPT LIGHT WALL
An interesting décor idea to experiment with this Deepawali can be, re-doing or creating a wall in the hallway or even in the middle of the lobby with concept lighting. You can infuse the wall with LED bulkheads (innovation is the name of the game!) covered with Moroccan style filters for a contemporary vibe.


3. GUEST-FRIENDLY OUTDOORS
The paramount goal for any décor is that it should be warm and welcoming. The same applies to outdoors of the house as well. Lighting hedges, walkways and entrances with LED Bulkheads help create a more guest-friendly atmosphere. You can use LED strip lights to line the edging of your flower beds or walkways.

Lastly, candles and diyas are always a wonderful addition, and you can use LED-powered ones to line the path. The fact that LED has many benefits- like using less wattage so that one can use more fixtures; or that they last much longer and don’t require frequent replacements, making them a better option.

This Diwali, try these innovative lighting ideas for redecorating your spaces and welcome the lord with dazzle into your abode.

Things to keep in mind while using LED Downlights


Lighting can add more value to the look and feel of a room. And if you are using downlights, then you can create ambient as well as task lighting effects with the same. While using downlights, you should be careful in the way you structure or place them, otherwise the aesthetics of your room may get compromised. 



You can either position downlight/s to shed light on a specific spot or combine a number of downlights to illuminate an entire room. But, there are a few things you should consider before positioning them. Here are those:

Focal points

Focal point can be defined as an area, which is illuminated the most inside a room. LED downlights can be placed on such points that need attraction more than any other place, and the remaining lighting can be arranged around it as per the requirement. For instance, if you are planning to use downlights for your living room, then the outside view or the fire place could be your focal point.

Ceiling edges

While positioning LED down lights, you need to make sure that they are not placed too close to a wall, otherwise they will cast a shadow on the edge of the ceiling. This shadow makes a room look dull and less spacious. The ideal gap between downlights and the edge of a ceiling should be approximately 75cm. This will provide enough space for light to diffuse throughout a room, without casting any shadow. 

The beam angle

Beam angles of LED Downlights vary from model to model that produce lights having different radii. As the beam angle increases, more floorspace gets illuminated. While using downlights that have a narrow beam angle, make sure there isn’t too much space between them, otherwise the lighting arrangement may create some blind spots.

Now, it’s up to you ‘how’ you want to illuminate ‘which’ space. Be as much creative as you want!
