Spotlights are a lighting solution widely used for interior lighting because they can be perfectly integrated into any context and adapted to any style, from classic to modern. Each type of spotlight - or light spot - is designed to respond to particular lighting needs. The internal structure can be made of different materials - plaster, metal, steel or other heat-resistant material - and must be able to withstand the heat of the lamp and the weight of the spotlight itself. Spotlighting, unlike diffused lighting, allows the light to be directed to precise points, enhancing every space and highlighting the furnitures, details and particular objects, proving to be a versatile, practical and modern design solution, for a gradual play of light.
Furnishing through light: recessed LED spotlights to enhance the furniture
There are many types of spotlights available, although one of the preferred solutions is certainly LED spotlights, options combining the possibility of directing light and the warmth typical of LED light, to be adapted to the different environments of the house, from the living room to the kitchen. The use of this type of spotlight allows you to illuminate the rooms efficiently, enhancing areas and elements of the house. In this way, the LED light becomes a real piece of furniture, able to decorate the house and generate light beams, without being invasive. This is the case with recessed LED spotlights, whose structure disappears into ceilings, walls and floors, leaving the light visible. They can be used in any room of the house, representing an aesthetically and qualitatively valid solution. Whether fixed or adjustable spotlights, they are perfect for accent lighting, but also for ambient lighting in passageways such as entrances or corridors. Recessed halogen spotlights are a valid alternative to LED spotlights. In this case, the difference lies exclusively in the type of bulb to be used.
Indoor spotlights for targeted lighting
Indoor spotlights have become real design objects and for this reason they are able to enhance the interiors of an environment not only through light, but also through a balanced mix of shapes and materials. For example, instead of the classic chandelier, a series of wall spotlights can create interesting lighting effects in the living area. A modern style of furniture is combined with steel and aluminium spotlights, while a vintage style can be combined with brass spotlights. Whatever the room to be furnished or the style to be referred to, in addition to recessed spotlights and wall spotlights, among the options there are also track spotlights.
Spotlights to illuminate every room of the house with games of light
When choosing spotlights, direct light must first be taken into account. The most important type of light in this sense is natural sunlight that reaches the interior and is a source to be exploited to the fullest. Direct artificial light, on the other hand, is used to illuminate small rooms, such as entrances, corridors and hallways, which are unlikely to receive direct natural light. In this case, the ideal are the chalk spotlights, perhaps recessed in the plasterboard. As far as the dining and living area is concerned, the lighting sources must have a different nature depending on the activity that takes place there: for example, for reading areas it is good to have a direct light source to better illuminate our workstation. Indirect light, on the other hand, is used to illuminate the entire surrounding environment. For the kitchen, then, in addition to the light under the wall units, the hood above the cooker hob must be equipped with its own lighting. The recessed plasterboard LED spotlights or the typical strips of LED to create a convivial atmosphere are of great effect for this room in the house.
