Transforming Your Space by Reflecting Light

Wood, Coroplast, and fabric aren’t the only materials that will catch and reflect light. A trip to the home center will provide you with plenty of inspiration to offer a variety of simple tools that can yield amazing results when hit with light.

Coroplast is shown, cut on a CNC and strung together using fishing line and split shot weights. They’re lit from the top with LED PARs, from bottom with LED battens, and from the back with LED battens, with the backlight creates the white outline that’s seen on some of the hexagons.

If It Has Texture, Give It a Try

Wood, Coroplast, and fabric aren’t the only materials that will catch and reflect light. A trip to the home center will provide you with plenty of inspiration: PVC pipe, corrugated aluminum or fiberglass roofing, and even yarn or salvaged window frames are all simple tools that can yield amazing results when hit with light.

Don’t let your bland, beige walls or ugly upstage curtain get you down! Even without a lighting console, breathing new life into your space can be simple and inexpensive by experimenting with lighting some new surfaces.
