What is indirect lighting?

In the case of indirect lighting, unlike with direct lighting, the light source is not visible. Instead, the light is reflected off the ceiling, wall or floor. That’s why it’s ideal for the prevention of shadows or blinding light and to provide evenly distributed lighting.

Indirect lighting is great as mood lighting, and creates a more spacious feeling interior. However, it’s equally effective as general lighting for a room.

1. Atmosphere and cosiness

Indirect lighting is ideal as mood lighting for all types of interiors. From classic country to clean modern or organic styles, as uplighting or downlighting. One thing is certain: it enhances the architecture.

2. Visually larger spaces

Indirect lighting lights up walls, ceilings and even floors in style. The reflected light creates a more spacious feeling interior. By using colour, you can accentuate the lighting elements and emphasise the architecture. Painting the lighting in the same colour as the walls means it becomes completely one with the room.

3. Even, unshadowed lighting

When used as linear lighting, indirect lighting provides a completely unshadowed strip of light. This creates a more spacious feel and guarantees even, diffuse lighting.

4. Improved visual comfort

In the case of indirect lighting, the light source is not visible. This means you’ll never be blinded by the light source.

5. Integrated, energy-efficient LED lighting

Integrated LED lighting provides a compact, energy-efficient solution. What’s more, LED lighting is much more durable and environmentally friendly than traditional lighting.
