Lighting can set a mood. It can create warmth where there is none, define certain areas in open spaces without the need for walls and brighten an area that misses out on natural light. Knowing how to achieve certain effects can be confusing, however, given the myriad of options available today. How does one decide what types of light to purchase, how many and where they should be positioned?
One of the major factors within the beauty industry today is achieving the best illumination possible in the facial treatment zones, which often need to be different from the lighting effects in the retail and reception areas. Lighting can be as complicated and as diverse as the imagination.
Lighting is one of the most effective forms of controlling an environment or creating a mood, atmosphere or experience. A dull and uninteresting room or space can take on a completely different feel with the correct lighting. Lighting comes in either natural or artificial varieties, and is required for both functional and aesthetic purposes.
