As a B2B company, informing your customers about the differences between direct and indirect lighting is the first thing to discuss with the customers.
So what is the difference between direct and indirect lighting?
Simply it means there is no barriers between the light and the area needed to be lighted.
This term refers to the lighting process in which the source of lighting is hidden and the place does not receive a direct lighting.
Where to use direct and indirect lighting?
It is preferred to let the clients be aware of where to opt each one and why since choosing one of them in the wrong place would ruin the whole decor.
Direct lighting is much more used than indirect lighting and customers can choose this type in:
- Dining places
- around the bathroom vanity area
Take into consideration that this is not an absolute since the size of the place might require different type of lighting and direct lighting mostly is used in the areas that they perform some tasks on them.
Indirect lighting is used in places people spend time in to relax and in places they want to make some focus on and for reflective purposes.

A linear structure to compromise the flow of light:
The linear structure is the optimal choice to compromise the flow of light and make it smoother, especially if it is in multiple lengths. So they do not have to worry about the compromising of light in the place they use indirect lighting in with linear fixture.
A light-weight structure:
Using a light-weight structure makes the indirect lighting more effective. Because the purpose of indirect lightning is to produce an illusional light, the fitting that they need to make have to be hidden. In this regard, slim structure helps to hide the main structure of the indirect lighting.
LED fixture with a low surface temperature:
Let your customers be aware with the idea that the indirect lighting fixture is used mostly near to other things, so it is important to opt LED fixture that has a low surface temperature to not cause any damages to nay part of walls or other objects.
Using steady clear diffuser of light:
The desired atmosphere of indirect lighting is to produce light to all surroundings from hidden resources without spotlighting. As a result, using a steady clear diffuser in the fixture will serve that purpose.
