What Types of Lighting are There?
There are three types of lighting: general lighting (also known as ambient), accent lighting, and task lighting. A room may have one or a combination of the following:
General lighting is the main light in the room. This includes natural light from windows, ceiling lights, or recessed lighting.
Accent lighting illuminates an area or element in a room, like a reading area, kitchen island, or reading nook. Use lamps, pendant lighting, chandeliers, or sconces to achieve the right look.
Task lighting is a fixture that adds extra light to perform a task. Picture a light over the sink for washing dishes, under cabinet lights to prepare food, or a reading lamp next to the bed.
