3 Types of Lighting that Matter in Your Home

When it comes to interior design, there’s only so much that a single fixture can do to a room. The perfect lighting can bring depth, height, warmth, and attention to areas that you want to highlight the best.

Learn a little bit more about the 3 basic types of lighting will help you figure out how you can elevate your space and make your guests bathe in a cozy atmosphere once they enter the room.

Ambient Lighting

Traditional ambient lighting like chandeliers, ceiling-mounted fixtures, and floor and table lamps are supposed to create a uniform illumination in a room. Ambient light can come from smaller light sources that help light the entire space.

Tip? Find dimmers that allow you to control the levels of light. You can go from a bright dinner if you’re having many people over, or a dimly lit romantic evening.

Accent Lighting

Accent lights highlight a specific object. It’s commonly used for the architectural features of a room, wall decor, and sculptures. Accent lighting is also frequently used for outdoor use to emphasize walkways and landscape features.

Tip? Try to add them to your exposed shelves to make the space appear bigger.

Task Lighting

From kitchens and workbenches, to study spaces, task lighting brightens an area where you need to work and see the finer details. Common examples of these are desk lamps, pendants, and wall-mounted lighting.

Tip? Placement is important. If you have a reading corner, try to put them to the side or behind you so they can light your page better and will not cast shadows.

With these in mind, we hope you’ll be able to curate the perfect lighting for your home.
