Finding the right lighting options for your home can seem like an overwhelming task. There are so many options and styles to choose from, and the right lighting in a room can really change the overall look and feel. Knowing what different types of lighting there are is your first step in figuring out what would be best for your home.
There are four basic types of lighting: Ambient Lighting, Task Lighting, Accent Lighting, and Decorative Lighting. Finding out which type of lighting does what, and where it should be used can help you with your decisions. The best technique experts use to show off the features and make a room look its best is when multiple types of lighting are used in layers. Using layers of different light sources can help balance the room out by illuminating shadows, show off a certain area, and add depth and dimension.
