A Brief Guide To Broken-Plan Lighting

The design space sees multiple trends over time, and each of them gets its momentary time in the spotlight before fading away like their counterparts. The open-plan living was one of the trends that had completely shaken the global design space with its arrival. Over time, the cons of open-plan living outweighed the pros, and it soon moved out of the spotlight too. With unavoidable problems like air-conditioning and noise control, an open-plan layout also strictly had to be minimalist, or it would simply lose its charm. With people losing interest in this design trend, broken-plan living soon came into the picture, and now it presents itself as a viable alternative. 

Broken-plan living is a much more practical alternative to open-plan living because of the clever use of space. Broken-plan living, in simpler words, is a midway point between the open-plan layout and the conventional floor plans, with the zoning and the distinction being more prominent in the former. Lighting can get slightly complex when lighting up both these layouts, but we’re here to help you out with these simple but effective tips. Look at all the lighting tips we have for you if you’re flaunting a broken-plan layout. 

1. Use lights to tie-in rooms together 

When it comes to a broken plan layout, the idea is to create a uniform flow of light in the entire space. Yes, a broken-plan layout is about creating distinct boundaries between the space but using other elements for zoning is a much better idea. When it comes to illumination, ensure that each space is lit well together and that the lighting designs and spaces complement and complete each other. The best way to do this is by illuminating your ceilings really well. You can use hanging lights like chandeliers or pendant lights to lend uniform illumination to your living space. Also, a little unrelated, but pendant lighting can also help you create subtle divisions in the room too. 

2. Make use of ambient lighting fixtures to create subtle divisions

Now that we’ve already teased creating divisions in the space then let’s look at how to use ambient lighting designs to create subtle zones in your home. Using ambient lighting designs like table lamps, floor lamps and more is the perfect way to create gorgeous focal points in the space and also creating boundaries. When it comes to table lamps, you can place a side-table or a coffee table under them and use both the lighting and the furniture to create a zone in the space. With floor lamps, you don’t really have to be particular about the placement as they can fit quite effortlessly into your space. Wall lights can be used to lend to the mid-level lighting and they can be aptly placed in any space with walls. 

There are many other lighting options that can complement your broken-plan layout and you can really pick the ones that truly suit your taste and your needs. There isn’t really a sure-shot formula to light up your broken-plan layout.
