Wall washers either installed on the wall or aimed down from the ceiling are used mostly to highlight decorative features such as an art piece or a textured finish like a brick wall. However the psychological effect created by lighting the walls can make the whole room feel much brighter.
Consider your lighting preferences during the initial design phase of a new build or renovation. For example if you want three pendant lights over your dining table instead of one or two that should be taken into account before construction starts.
Lighting design is all about the strategic placement of light and matching the perfect light source to its intended function. Indirect lighting pulls focus adds texture and layers the sight line.
