The lighting design concept which advocates creating "pools of light" in a space is especially germane amidst our current focus on energy conservation. By accentuating key areas through a combination of brighter colors and higher illumination levels in a relatively dark space, the eye is drawn only to areas deemed important to the design solution. Another approach, stemming from a more practical standpoint, is to create "layers of light". In this instance, lighting in a space is controlled by separate switches and dimmers so it can be lit either in sections, segregated by task, or in its entirety. This avoids over-lighting and allows for flexible lighting control. Carefully deployed, one can create a sense of drama, ceremony and cadence through these lighting techniques.
Curtain Lighting is constructed similar to string lights but the wire holding the bulbs is dropped vertically from the top horizontal wire and back up again at regular intervals, which gives a curtain effect. They come in many different lengths, some straight across the bottom and some have a shaped finish such as a scalloped or ragged bottom line. Net Lighting is also much the same as string lighting but instead of the bulbs being connected to one long string they are connected to a net of power wire. The nets usually have either square or diamond construction and are available in many sizes. They can be place outside over bushes, hedges or features which would be easier than using string lights and give a lovely evenly spaced effect.
LED lights are a low-energy option for mains-powered lights. These eco-friendly products do not use mercury in their production and can last up to 100 times longer than incandescent globes. Although the initial cost is currently substantially higher than that of incandescent globes, as technology improves and demand grows, the number of manufacturers will grow and increase competitiveness and so prices will begin to drop to more affordable levels.
