Cove lighting is a smart way to accentuate your home and give it an inviting ambiance. As opposed to direct light, cove lights cast indirect rays throughout the room which can create beautiful shadows as well as highlighting certain features in a subtle manner that other types of artificial lighting cannot achieve on their own.
Cove lighting is often used for indirect illumination. This type of light will typically be directed towards the ceiling or top portion of a wall, and hidden behind valances, crown moldings, ledges/recesses etc. Cove lights are generally preferable to traditional lamps because they provide more decorative flexibility while also providing ample light coverage in spaces with high ceilings like ballrooms and churches where you might hang chandeliers from the rafters but have no other options for illuminating below eye level without compromising aesthetics by hanging conventional fixtures on walls that make up most of your interior surface area.
Cove lights are an excellent choice for those who want to add a warm, inviting touch to their home. Cove lighting can be used with other types of light fixtures in order create new and interesting effects within your room or house. The possibilities seem endless as cove lights offer you something different every time they’re put into use; whether it’s the traditional soft glow that bounces off elegant fabrics or the sleek modernity of hidden LED bulbs shining through dark surfaces like midnight ice on water, there is no end to what these versatile devices can do!
Cove lighting may not be perfect for everyone since this type of fixture hides its source from view but perhaps that only serves to heighten curiosity about how such beautiful sights could come out of nowhere?
Cove lighting is stunning and can really make a great first impression. You just have to do it right, or else your room could end up with shadows, poor lighting in certain areas of the space, and other things that you want to avoid like bad cove light placement. That’s why consulting an experienced designer before executing any plan for this type of installation is so important – they keep all these potential problems from happening!
