Light plays an important role in creating the perfect space. The use of light has the power to transform the design and create the right atmosphere. More than ever, designers and architects are playing with the use of light on stone. This is due to the increase in new natural stone products on the market and the ever-evolving LED technology. To our delight, these changes have created new possibilities, and the way we can illuminate the stone now goes beyond simply adding a spotlight to emphasize its beauty. Thus, light-transmitting decorative stones are becoming a strong trend and we are excited to share a little more on this topic.
First, it is important to understand that not all natural stones can be illuminated, but only those that are considered translucent. Although onyx is the most famous translucent stone, others such as marble, quartzite and granite also have this quality. “Transparency” can occur in the whole surface or only in parts of it.
In addition, the installation of a backlit panel will illuminate the translucent areas of the stone and create a bright and dramatic effect. Incorporating backlighting into your stone is usually an easy process. However, to ensure that it is done correctly, which means that the illuminated surface looks the same and elegant, it is important to hire a professional who has experience and uses the right panels. Here we can modestly say that we at Codesign.bg are among the right choices.
Backlit stones can be used in different ways in one project. Designers can use a backlit countertop to bring a bar to life, a wall app or even a column around it to hide it and turn it into a unique lighting fixture.
It is certainly a plus if you can see the stone you use in your project, illuminated before installation. Each stone is unique and the way it will show its translucency is also unique. Therefore, when you come to one of our showrooms or like a product from the portal Codesign.bg , we can show you exactly what your chosen decorative stone (marble, quartzite, granite or onyx) will look like after it is illuminated.
When it comes to interior design and getting the most out of your space, lighting is a strong key factor. The arrangement of the lights can significantly affect the overall look of your space. Once the right translucent stone is selected and installed correctly with the right LED panels, your lighting application will surely create the perfect wow factor for your project.
