Visual appearance iconHere you'll learn more about the importance of the visual appearance of a ceiling, such as the colour and light properties.

 

 

 

Light coloured ceilings create pleasant interiors

Lighting can make a huge contribution to the overall look and feel of a room. A key factor is how the ceiling reflects and diffuses the light. To create a pleasant interior, the ceiling should be the lightest surface in the room, evoking the brightness of the sky at daytime. For that, a white ceiling will reflect more light than a darker one. The lighting itself should not cause glare or surface reflection. This can be avoided by the installation of indirect lighting, which in turn will ask for a ceiling surface showing a high rate of diffuse reflection. 

High light reflectance makes for cost-effective lighting

When a ceiling shows good light reflectance and light scattering, the need for installed lighting is reduced. A lot of the light produced or reflected on surfaces and objects inside the room, will at some point hit the ceiling. Assumed that the ceiling surface has a high light reflectance value combined with good scattering properties of the surface layer, it will be reflected in a diffuse way towards the room again. This results in improved energy efficiency and a better working environment.
