Rules or Guidelines to having Highlighters
We suggest our clients or home owners to have highlighters used for smaller wall or space of a room then a bigger one. For eg. A highlighter used for a 10’x10’ wall will appear too loud or ragged. But if the same highlighter is used for a 5’x6’ wall, the room will appear pretty bright creating a style statement.
Secondly we advise home owners not to overdo by highlighting every wall with different highlighters or big designs. Having too many highlighters like wood panel and also highlighter tile will make the room tattered. Also with too big motifs or design patterns, the room may look over not so good , thus taking away the view for highlighter- the design element. Here the purpose of having highlighter is lost. We therefore suggest our clients to choose highlighter type and design style very smartly.
Another important aspect is having correct lights. To bring out the highlighter or the highlighted wall, always have a LED spot light or directional light. This helps the design element to stand out even more. The light effect also will change with different type and finish of highlighter.
