Indirect lighting

Is light that reflects into a room through another surface, such as a wall or ceiling. The light is smooth and pleasant, and the bright light source doesn’t disturb the eyes. Indirect light is easy to create by using different kinds of moldings or by placing light behind objects on the wall, for example.

You can easily create ambience for working, entertaining or any mood in between by dimming your LIMENTE indirect lighting.

Indirect light is a beautiful way to illuminate a room and, at the same time, an extremely easy way to increase the interest of the space with light. Shapes and furniture are elegantly accented when they are illuminated indirectly. Indirect light is pleasant and easy on the eyes, as it never blinds. The pleasantly soft light suits any space and creates a personal touch to your interior design.

Indirect lighting is best to consider when designing a space. At that point, it’s convenient to decide which objects to highlight. At the same time, wiring and power supply locations will also be taken into account!
