Lighting is a very important aspect of planning a functional space in your home. Properly lit spaces offer the ability to showcase different hues of color, textiles, and other aspects of the room design. Depending on the particular room or space and how that area is used, different types of light need to be utilized.
The general light in a room is your ambient lighting. Then you have your task lighting that provides light to a certain area for a certain task like reading, putting on makeup, or cooking. Lastly you have your accent lighting that’s used to highlight certain details in your space like artwork, accessories on shelving, and other architectural features.
It is important that no one type of light is overused, but a combination of all three are used properly. This will create an enhanced and better functioning space.
