Tricks of the light

Sally
Storey, design director for John Cullen Lighting, explains how to master hidden
lighting effects.

Cleverly
concealed lighting can accentuate key architectural features in your home and
save space. ‘The trick is to build layers of hidden lighting in combination
with your other light sources,’ explains Storey. ‘Bookshelves, staircases and
alcoves look more dramatic when back- or front-lit.’ You can have specialist
lights fitted to achieve this effect, but for a simple fix, we suggest using
slim, flexible strip lights, such as the ‘Contour Line’. Attach them to
surfaces, such as the undersides of kitchen cabinets, using the adhesive on the
back. The strips can be cut to fit and they’ll even bend around corners. Plus,
the LED bulbs are energy-efficient.
