Characteristics of a Hygge Spot
We realize that the definition of a hygge place may vary slightly from person to person. However, as a guideline we use the following characteristics that are generally considered hygge.
Basic lightingBasic lighting is the light you turn on when you enter the space. The light spreads evenly and doesn’t create too much effect or contrast. Think ceiling lamps, hanging lamps and build-in spots.
Atmospheric lightingAtmospheric lighting is for creating…atmosphere. It’s a soft, indirect light that spreads throughout the space. This is called diffused light. Use different heights of atmospheric lighting for optimal results, for example table lamps, floor lamps and wall lamps.
Functional lightingFunctional lighting is focused light that enables you to see what you’re doing. It’s the light above your dinner table, the reading lamp next to your lazy chair and the spots above your kitchen sink.
Accent lightingAccent lighting is used to single out a specific object or place and focus attention on it. This could be a painting or an architectonic detail.
Decorative lightingDecorative lighting is about the esthetics of the armature itself. Lighting the space is not its purpose; it’s just there for the effect. Most of these light sources have little light output and stand out because of their appearance. Fireplaces and candles are also decorative lighting.
Hygge is the art of creating warmth, coziness and contentment in any given moment.
Hygge Hytte means 'cozy cottage', a place where you can unwind and recharge.
