The Four Basic Types Of Home Lighting



One way to improve your dream house is to have the perfect home lighting. Home lighting is one of the most important elements in home interior design. It can create the right element that makes your house elegant and conducive for any type of mood. The right atmosphere can be created when you take a few steps into account.

There four basic types of  lighting for the home, Understanding these four types will help you achieve your desired effect in any area of your house. These types will also help you plan and decide what type of home lighting decorations you should purchase.
1. Ambient or general lighting. Its purpose is to illuminate the whole room. Most interior lighting decorators suggests that a dimmer light should be installed with your track and recessed lights to add flexibility in adjusting the brightness thus changing mood and practicality.
2. Task lighting. Its main function is help you perform the task at hand such as reading, cooking, shaving  etc. It provides sufficient light for any particular activity so it should be glare free, and it should not tire or strain your eyes.
3. Accent lighting. Is known as focused lighting used to illuminate a sculpture, piece of art or any architectural element placed in any areas in your home. It is about three times as bright as the ambient light to give justice to any masterpiece it is being used to highlight.
4. Natural lighting. This light is the natural light that any time of the day is produced. It comes through the windows, doors and skylights. This light varies in brightness and intensity depending on the time of the day, season and weather. It achieves a light and airy feel.
You must also know that home lighting can have an effect whether the room will look smaller or bigger. There are lighting techniques that can enhance the real size of your house without exerting extra effort and without spending too much.
