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.
