Nothing can add warmth quite like the right lighting. It is a proven fact that light can change your mood dramatically. As you are making plans for the lighting in your home, there are different types of home lighting to consider. Burley Electrical Services would like to explain the different types of home lighting there are to choose from.
Interior Lighting Design Considerations
When you are deciding on what type of lighting you want to use in your home, you should consider the benefits of using several types of lighting in one room. This is called layered lighting. Each type of lighting fulfills a different need, and together they illuminate your room to create the perfect environment for you and your family.
Ambient Lighting Interior Design
Ambient lighting is the lighting used to completely illuminate your room. This type of lighting fills the room with light completely and evenly. There are not lights focusing on a specific part of the room. There are many different options of ambient lighting to fill your room with light including: ceiling mounted light fixtures, wall sconces, floor lamps, or even recessed fixtures.
Interior Accent Lighting Ideas
Accent Lighting is chosen when you are wanting to draw attention to a specific area in the room. If you are trying to showcase fine art, certain architectural features, or bookcases, you will want to use accent lighting to do it. Recessed or track lighting are common fixtures to use when accenting an area of the room. These are great options because you can adjust them to focus exactly where you want attention to be drawn. You can use accent lighting to focus on very small or large objects when they are adjustable.
Kitchen Under Cabinet, Desk & Other Task Lighting
Task lighting is used in areas that you need extra illumination in order to fulfill a specific function. You may find task lighting in an office over the desk to create focused lighting in order to assist in reading or writing. Kitchens and bathrooms may also have task lighting. Task lighting should create focused light without distracting glares or shadows. It is usually bright light so you avoid straining your eyes when completing your tasks.
Don’t Forget Natural Light
When choosing the lighting for your room, consider the natural lighting that the room with be receiving. Natural light can be maximized by coupling it with the right home lighting choices. The first place to start is getting your ambient light in place, and then choose accent and task lighting from there.
