Uncovering the integral relationship between light and shadow, and flooring or walls, opens endless design opportunities for the home. From chandeliers to pendants, the choice of lighting in a living area, bath, or even outdoors goes beyond brightening a space to actually highlighting the beautiful qualities of tile and other design elements.
Take a tour through each space in the home with us, and explore how to enhance tile’s reflective qualities through lighting design.
Experience the ultimate elegant ambiance in a foyer with crystal lighting and marble flooring. Chandeliers with shine draw the eye upward, allowing us to visually explore a vertical plane and notice high ceilings. When looking downward, notice how the chandelier reflects off of a polished white marble, seen here with our Kalta Collection. These reflections also accentuate the naturally occurring variations of the marble.
Don’t underestimate the power of natural light in a living space or walkway. Sunlight through wall-sized windows and an open skylight enables the true tone of a neutral plank tile to emerge. Experience the dynamic movement of sandstone, brought to life with high graphic definition and emphasized with natural lighting, with Access™.
Add a dynamic pendant light for the perfect finishing touch to a modern vanity. The intricacies of this clear cylindrical design brighten up on-trend gray wall tile, like our Specular™ series, which is also complemented by backlighting the mirror.
Pair opposing design forces for a refreshing aesthetic. For a luxury bathroom with a freestanding tub, incorporate the glitz of a larger pendant with decorative accents surrounded by contrasting mosaics and pebbles. Charm™ lines this accent wall as Cultura™ sets the tone on the floor.
Purposefully placed outdoor lighting adds drama a sophistication to outdoor gathering spaces. These shadow lights highlight the dimension and strength of an American Rockies™ natural stone wall while also serving a functional purpose.
