Create a Plan for Your Lighting Design
Your lighting should support the function of the space and create a certain atmosphere, all while spending the least possible energy. It's not just about the bulb, it's also about quality of life and understanding the function of it. Design a lighting system to support this function by using available technologies together — mix lamps, fixtures, and controls together to bring your vision to life.
Start by looking at existing light sources to decide what can be accomplished without even flipping a switch: daylight. It's the most energy-efficient system because it's one that's not even turned on.
Once you've exhausted that possibility, the next step is moving toward electric lighting. Today's energy-conscious designers opt for multiple lower-brightness sources of light over a single high-wattage source to reduce glare and to make the space feel more pleasant.
