Brief Explanation

What Types Of Lighting Did We Install?

For our customer’s request and needs, we installed 2 types of lighting in their living room area: some integrated trim lights and several LED strips for the bookshelf.

The main centerpiece for the entire setup of the space was the fireplace and built-in shelving. From here, the lighting naturally wanted to spread outwards.

We installed some integrated lights around the trim of the ceiling to help build upon the centerpiece of the fireplace.

We went with some soft blue, nearly violet, fluorescents for this which really helped to give the space some pop.

The Method Behind The Lighting.

We went really warm with the built-in bookshelves. Although we installed various LED lighting strips in and around the shelves for the desired effect, we used ones that gave off more of a warm Halogen yellow rather than settling for the brazing-white Mercury which LEDs so often tend to give off normally.

The warmer yellow tone that we chose for the bookshelves worked perfectly with the surroundings, especially since it resembled the ideal light levels for reading.

Add into the mix the slate-gray stone fireplace with just the touch of blue surrounding fluorescents and the whole space was practically screaming “modern comfort”.

We were especially well pleased with how this project turned out, and thankfully, so was our customer.

1. What's Integrated Lighting?


You’ve likely come across integrated lighting before, and may even have some in your home without even knowing it.

Basically, integrated lighting is supposed to be seen and not shown if that makes sense. For example. an outdoor railing that has lights underneath it, that’s integrated lighting.

Or a fence restaurant that had doorways that are ever so slightly illuminated around the doorframe, that’s integrated lighting.

You could easily say that our work on the bookshelf is integrated lighting as well, which, it is.

But, it’s so much more common and natural to simply call it bookshelf lighting though.

2. Is There Any Purpose To Bookshelf Lighting?


Oh yes, certainly!

Bookshelf lighting is one of those decisions where you never really thought about too much before you got it.

But once you finally do get it, you can’t stop admiring it and being proud of how you even decided to get it in the first place.

Bookshelf lighting is subtle, simple, and above all, sleek. It can turn your 4-year old’s rock collection into fascinating silhouettes of art.

It shows off your glimmering knick-knacks, your great tastes in literature and cinema, and it just adds much more of an overall style and poise to the regular bookshelves that normally wouldn’t ever have been present.

And it’s not just limited to actual bookshelves either. The concepts and applications are equally compatible with glass shelves, floating shelves, dressers, secretaries, multi-level desks, and even bathroom shelves as well.

Regardless of the actual option though, bookshelf lighting is a smart, subtle way of giving and boring space a much-needed spark.
