Pirouette® Window Shadings

Lighting plays a key role in the feel of a room, so it’s important to consider several aspects of lighting when you think about how you want a room to look. Obviously, light can come from many sources and can feel different at different times of the day, so understanding those elements is crucial. Lighting is one of the most changed elements of design we have, and we need to learn “How to Use It.” If you’d like some help with lighting ideas in your space, talk to the experts at Windo VanGo here in Baltimore. We’ll be happy to share our expertise!

Three Levels of Lighting for Each Room

  1. Light to work by
  2. General illumination to fill the space; it usually comes from the ceiling
  3. Mood lighting, which usually comes from the floor up

You don’t have to have them all at once, but it will change your space and give you new looks during the evening.Continue Reading

Where Your Light Comes From

Although it is frequently overlooked, it’s important to know which direction your windows face.

  • South-facing – light is warm and strong all year round. Consider light-diffusing solutions to protect your furnishings
  • North-facing – light is cold and clear. Consider energy-efficient solutions
  • West-facing – hot and bright afternoon light. Consider light-diffusing and light-control solutions
  • East-facing – bright warm morning light. Consider UV-protecting solutions
