Lighting concepts to highlight the floor in a room


For floor lighting, either washlighting is applied to the floor surface alone or the room as a whole is illuminated with downlights with direct light from above. Floor washlights particularly highlight the floor surface and its physical make-up.
Due to their asymmetric light distribution, floor washlights provide grazing light illumination of the floor. They ensure a high degree of visual comfort thanks to their low mounting height. The elimination of glare from downlights is determined by the cut-off angle. The evenness of the downlight lighting is higher.
