Lighting is one of the most overlooked and yet important elements of good design of a superyacht after all, there is little point in creating luxury surroundings if they cannot then be appreciated properly or if there is insufficient light to be able to carry out even the most basic of tasks. In addition, though, lighting is also essential in terms of creating the mood and ambience of space, so getting it right from start is vital.

When thinking about lighting, it tends to be an artificial light that comes to mind. optimising the use of natural light, however, is also key, both in terms of practicality and in order to be able to appreciate the beauty of the space. When creating an interior design scheme from scratch taking both artificial and natural lighting into consideration. Where artificial lighting is concerned, there are of course a number of different types. Accent lighting, for example, can be extremely effective when used to display paintings or to accentuate objects d’art, although the angle of the lighting clearly needs to be just right to achieve the very best effect. Task lighting is another type of lighting which is important in just about every room. Mood lighting uses different tones and colours of light, as well as different levels of brightness, with the aim of creating an atmosphere in a room. In many cases, it uses soft, warm lights to induce a feeling of calm and relaxation, but at the opposite end of the spectrum, it can also be used to provide a lively and invigorating effect.

Of course, getting the lighting right in a luxury design scheme isn’t just about where lights are placed or how strong or bright they are. The light fittings and lamps themselves are an element of the overall design and, when chosen to fit perfectly with the style of the room, they have the potential to give life to the space.
