Lighting can make or break a room. When planning your lighting consider the basic types; ambient, accent, task, decorative and natural. A properly light room will incorporate several layers and types of lighting, rather than just one lone fixture on the ceiling. The proper combination of all types of lighting makes for the perfect living environment.
Ambient lighting is the starting point for lighting a space or a room. It is the base or foundation for lighting a room. Ambient light can come from recessed lights, ceiling lights, or table and floor lamps. These types of fixtures characteristically give an even, diffuse light level for the space.
Accent lighting is directional focused light aimed at an object or feature such as paintings or other works of art to make it stand out. Flood lights, spot lights, track lights and even sconces do a good job at this. Accent lighting should be about three times as bright as the ambient lighting.
Task lighting is directional light aimed at a specific area to provide sufficient light to help you perform a certain task such as reading, cooking, shaving, etc. Desk lamps, ceiling pendants, and appliance lights are all good examples of task lighting fixtures. Task lighting should be glare free. And it should make things easy to see without tiring or straining your eyes.
Decorative lighting draws attention to itself and adds to a rooms décor. Chandeliers, light strips, pendants, sconces and even candles are all examples of this type fixture.
Natural lighting comes in through windows and skylights. Depending on the time of day, season, or weather, it can vary in brightness and intensity.
