In the best lighting design projects for private homes, restaurants and accommodation facilities, entrance lighting plays an important role. In every location, it is essential to create the right atmosphere by selecting the most suitable solutions for the context, both aesthetically and functionally.
The entrance is the perfect place to make the first style statement.
To accompany you in the selection of the most suitable decorative lamps for the project you are working on, we recommend reading this article.
Below, we will provide you with some useful design tips, illustrating the best types of lamps to illuminate the entrance.
Entrance lighting: the most suitable Karman lamps
As already highlighted, it is important to illuminate the entrance in every living, accommodation or restaurant facility to instill the perfect mood immediately.
To achieve an adequate level of lighting in the reception area, each project phase must be planned in detail. Therefore, we suggest you:
- Consider the location’s entire furniture concept
The first design step requires a careful evaluation of the furnishing concept designed exclusively for the home or building in question.
The style of the selected lamps must harmonise with the aesthetics of the scenery’s furnishings.
2. Evaluate the available space
Considering the entrance spaces will determine the success of the project, both in a functional and purely aesthetic sense. In fact, in addition to identifying the right position for each lamp, you will also figure out how many solutions you’ll need for the entrance.
3. Include the main lighting levels
A categorical imperative in your lighting project is to include the main lighting levels. In this way, you will ensure functional brightness and aesthetic force in every corner and element in the space.
4. Choose the colour temperature best suited to the context
The luminous temperature has the power to influence our perception of the environment that surrounds us. Therefore, it is necessary to choose intense lights suitable for the context.
If you want to recreate an intimate and comfortable atmosphere, we suggest choosing warm light sources. While on the contrary, if you prefer to infuse a stimulating and energetic climate, opt for cold light sources.
5. Select creative designer lamps
Illuminating an entrance means combining functionality and technique to ensure maximum visibility and comfort but still leaving room for style.
Regarding this last point, we would like to dwell on Karman lamps, a powerhouse of inspiration and aesthetics, combined perfectly with remarkable technical qualities.
