Types of Light: Diffuse, Direct and Indirect

The light can provide different types of lighting for an environment. She can make a place more visually beautiful, or until it is warm. However, many do not give the due importance that good lighting and correct choice for your environment. Put only a central light can illuminate the space, but this will not enable you to create an environment that conveys several sensations.

Choosing the appropriate light is essential to achieve the balance between beauty and functionality, for this you must think about in your project the kind of light that the lamp produces, and within that universe there are three modalities in which we will show here their differences.

Types of Light Diffuse, Direct and Indirect 1

The Diffuse Light

In this type of lighting lamps are manufactured generally in milky glass, which allows a “break” from the intensity of the light without decreasing the ability of light. Your clarity is uniform, and smoother, making the entire environment to receive enlightenment, without practically creating unwanted shadows. The fixtures that provide this type of lighting are the plafon or the sconces, but it is also possible to create this effect with lamps in milky glass.

Types of Light Diffuse, Direct and Indirect 2

Direct Light

The focus of this lighting is to highlight. Its main feature is to illuminate a specific point intensely, such as paintings and sculptures, but is also used on the table to assist in reading. Usually are used for spots, dichroic lamps PAR20 or PAR70, and table lamps. Prefer the use of white light and, more import, select use a lamp of LED, since it practically does not heat up and thus does not change the color of the object illuminated. It is important to note that the places where emit reflections or some kind of gloss are not recommended.

Indirect Light

Widely used in the demotion of plaster and linings of the ceiling, the indirect light has as goal to create an environment more intimate and comfortable visually. In this case, the light is directed to a surface and then reflected to various directions, illuminating as well the environment in a uniform and smooth, and are therefore less invasive and more pleasing to the eye. A tip is to use lamps yellow, which will enhance the coziness of the place.

Which to use?

The ideal is to work with all of them and combine them in ways that enrich the environment and to be functional. But remember to carefully consider the location where you will place, since, depending on the use of any particular room will not fulfill its role properly.
