My sunroom is so bright surely I don’t need lighting in it.
Not all days are sunny and during those cloudy, rainy, and other bad weather days you will need some alternative light sources. Furthermore, unless you have a southern exposure, your sunroom will not have full sunlight throughout the day either. Design a lighting plan for your sunroom and focus mainly on the night-time hours, this should also take care of any daytime needs. Part of a well-designed lighting plan must consider not only the purpose of the sunroom but also the style of the surroundings.
Don't abandon your conservatory/sunroom after sunset.
A well-designed lighting plan can provide the necessary illumination for you to linger in your sunroom during the night-time hours. Determine suitable lighting for your sunroom by deciding which activities and tasks you are planning to enjoy there.
An ideal lighting plan includes three basic types of lighting:
- Ambient lighting – Ambient lighting provides general, overall illumination, and is the most basic of the three types. It provides a comfortable level of brightness without glare. All other layers of lighting are added to this.
- Task lighting – Task lighting adds brightness to areas where specific activities are performed (e.g. reading, playing games). It should be free of glare and shadows.
- Accent lighting – Accent lighting is typically used to highlight certain objects or architectural features, such as houseplants, or paintings, but it can also be used to create the mood. Accent lighting is meant to work without being seen.
