"Lighting design is the means to reflect the soul of design."

Light is an insignificant figure in the space, but it can create a warm atmosphere with a tiny body. It can be seen that the role of light in the space is not trivial. There is a main light source in each area of ​​the space, in the form of ceilings, ceiling lamps, etc., as the lighting of the space, but it is bland, lacks design sense, and cannot touch the softness in the heart.

If you often watch TV series, you will find that the lighting design in the play has a unique charm. There is no main light source, but it can present a warm visual beauty, which is the use of main light lighting. In this issue, Zuojujun takes the lighting without the main lamp as an example to tell you about the design of the lighting without the main lamp.


Main lighting generally refers to the use of a small number of ceiling lamps and chandeliers as a means of lighting the space. The main lighting without the main light uses spotlights, downlights, track lights and auxiliary lights to complete the lighting in point-shaped areas to create a warm living environment.

Advantages of no main lighting

1. Decorate the wall

Few ceiling lamps or suspended ceilings are placed above the ceiling, which is too monotonous and tasteless. Lighting without main light can decorate the wall, using the simple shape or embedded design, so that the wall is no longer empty and full of design sense.

2. Convenience

Although a single light source can illuminate some areas, it cannot achieve omnidirectional illumination. The main light lighting can implement the light to every corner according to the needs and living habits of the occupants. For example, the design of the shoe cabinet in the entrance uses the combination of light strips and downlights, so that soft light occupies every corner, and the light strip under the entrance provides convenience for changing shoes when going out.

3. Create an atmosphere

No main lighting is the use of indirect lighting, so that the light source flows to every corner of the space. The interweaving and entanglement of light and shadow, and the looming atmosphere makes the whole space surrounded by warm and soft lighting, which stimulates the softness in the heart.

How to create mainless lighting?

Lighting without main lights is based on spotlights, downlights, track lights and auxiliary lights. Auxiliary lights include table lamps, wall lamps, floor lamps and other types, which are arranged in areas where occupants often move. For example, in the living room, spotlights are used as the lighting for the TV wall, and the floor lamp on the sofa is the backup light source for reading, forming a warm and beautiful leisure environment.

choice of lighting

Compared with the main lamp, the number of lighting decorations has increased significantly, and the power and color temperature of the lighting also need to be carefully considered. For spaces with a floor height within 3.5 meters, the power of embedded spotlights should be within 55-8w, and the power of surface mounted spotlights, track lights, etc. should be 8-10w.

Common light color temperatures are white light, warm white light, and yellow light. The warm white light is slightly softer, darker and darker, and has a strong sense of comfort. It is suitable for many occasions. The yellow light is slightly darker, and the visual effect is warm and hazy, which is suitable for bedrooms. In the selection of indoor lighting, warm white light is the main focus, and white light and yellow light are embellished.

Choice of lamps

In the selection of lamps and lanterns, following the principle of "less is more, simplicity is abundance", we eliminate complicated patterns and shapes, and focus on simple and generous designs. The embedded downlight, hidden in the wall, only retains the round appearance, and silently releases the light source, which is simple and elegant.

In the traditional design, the main light is used to illuminate the space, but it is monotonous and lacks innovation. On this basis, the mainless lighting adds a novel and unique way, attracts attention with multi-level layout and style, creates a warm and rich design environment, and improves the space design.
