Lighting Plan:

A lighting plan basically means a plan that shows the footwork of all the lights of your house. It even shows where lights can be installed and changing which lights can bring out the aesthetic and mood of a room or your house. There are three layers to a basic lighting plan, and those are:

 

  • task
  • ambient
  • accent

 

Task lighting means areas where lighting is required for specific tasks. Such as a working desk in an office or a room. Office lighting design has various areas where you can find task lighting, and it’s pretty common.

 

The second layer is the ambient layer. Basically, this layer involves the illumination of an area. It increases the overall illumination of a specific area. One expert working in Luxtac points out that soft lighting is usually used near walls, and hard lighting is used outside. Ambient lighting brings out the creative side of things and is very crucial to lighting design.

 

The third layer is the accent layer; this layer shows all the visual appliances in an office or inside the house. These lighting can be in various sockets and shine directly on the appliance. The accent layer can have lighting of different colors such as green, blue, or any other sophisticated color.

 

How to create a floor plan?

Now you know the basic terms, it’s now time for you to create your own floor plan. Here are five tips related to creating the best floor plan.

 

  • Draw a floor plan

This might sound simple, but it is not. You first have to visualize where you are going to put lights inside your house and how many lights you need. Make sure you include windows and door positioning in your floor plan. This helps you in determining where each light will look best

  • Think about the task layer

Think about the task layer. You should know where you should insert lighting that will affect task performance. Most task lighting is above the desk, presumably the ceiling.

  • Check Ambience and accent layer
  • Add Ambience and accent lighting

After you have determined where to put your task layers and have checked where ambiance and accent lighting can be inserted, it’s time to add these lights to your list and which color will suit them best.

  • Define total cost

Define the total cost of your floor plan, and check if it fits your budget. Overspending might damage your wallet, so it’s best to be under budget.

  • Select lights that fit your budget

After selecting, install the lights, and voila, you have a proper lighting plan. However, we at Luxtac would advise hiring proper lighting experts that can help you out in each step; they will create a plan for you and pick out the best lighting in the market that will satisfy your lighting plans for your house.
