6 ideas for lighting your loft conversion
As loft conversions are growing in popularity, more people are looking for new ways to illuminate their new converted space.
Loft conversions can be challenging to light, with their intriguing shapes, low ceilings, and sharp corners. However, with our lighting ideas, your loft will feel light and airy in no time!
Why not browse our extensive range of LED lighting products for your home while you’re here?
1. Recessed ceiling lights
Downlights are a versatile choice for lighting loft conversions. These are installed into the ceiling, offering a clean appearance and ambient lighting.
With even light distribution, this reduces shadows and glares in your room, creating an open and inviting space. This is the perfect option for those who love minimal interiors.
Recessed lights can be placed strategically to illuminate certain areas you wish to highlight. These are compatible with LED bulbs, making them cost-effective and eco-friendly.
2. Wall sconces in hallways
Wall sconces are a decorative and efficient lighting solution. They can be used for accent lighting to highlight specific features in your loft.
These fixtures are mounted onto the wall, typically at or slightly above eye level. With various styles available, from modern to vintage, these blend seamlessly with any style.
Line your hallway or entrance to your loft with sconces to create an inviting atmosphere. They can be installed individually or in pairs to create symmetrical or asymmetrical lighting
3. Track lighting for art
Track lighting provides directional lighting for your home. If you want to highlight artwork and architectural features or create focused lighting for a workspace, track lighting is ideal for you.
Depending on your loft layout, you can divide the track into zones or circuits to control different sections independently. These can be in bathrooms, bedrooms, and offices in your loft conversion.
4. Mirror lighting in bathrooms
If your loft conversion includes a bathroom, mirror lighting can add a luxurious feel to the space.
Mirror lighting is designed to provide focused illumination for tasks performed in the bathroom. This includes applying makeup, shaving, grooming, and other personal hygiene activities.
For accurate colour representation and makeup application, choose neutral white lighting, around 4000-5000 Kelvin. You can choose various finishes, materials, and styles to achieve the desired aesthetic.
5. Rope lighting for staircases
Rope lighting enhances safety on stairways by providing subtle illumination along the steps. The gentle light reduces harsh glare and shadows, increasing visibility.
These light fixtures can be affixed to various surfaces, including along the handrail, underneath the railing, or along the wall adjacent to the stairs. The use of LED bulbs makes rope lighting energy-efficient.
Popular options include warm white for a cosy loft, cool white for a modern touch, or colour-changing varieties for a pop of personality.
6. Cove lighting for a modern look
Cove lighting is designed to provide a room with a soft, diffused glow. This is typically installed in architectural recesses or ledges near the ceiling to hide the fixture from eyesight.
When selecting the LED strips or fixtures for cove lighting, consider the bulb's colour temperature. For a cosy and inviting ambience, choose warmer tones ranging from 2700-3000 kelvin. If you prefer a more neutral and modern look, choose bulbs around 4000-5000 Kelvin.
