It is the impact of lighting on human impression, mood, and behavior that has made lighting design one of the most important and specialized aspects of interior design. In designing interiors, designers must consider the placement and use of both artificial and natural light. A study was conducted involving 75 males and 75 females between the ages of 18 to 25, to assess the positive or negative responses to six rendered images of an interior livingroom space based on the aspects of clarity, spaciousness, relaxation, privacy, pleasantness, and order. Findings from this study have the potential to aid designers to design and visually present interior spaces that are the most aesthetically pleasing and conforming to the requirements set forth by the client.
