Let’s find out the different kinds of home lighting and the kind of illumination they offer:

Ambient Lighting

Ambient indoor lighting perfectly illuminates your room and offers a uniform level of illumination throughout the room. It provides a soft glow that covers the whole space, without it being too bright. From ceiling lights, and chandeliers, to wall fixtures and custom wall sconces, they all fall under ambient lighting. Ambient light works by bouncing the light off the walls to illuminate your room as much as possible. They are the perfect option when you’re looking for a vintage style or mid-century modern wall lighting to match your home décor.

Some of the most common types of task lighting are pendant lights, desk or table lamps, swing arm lamps, under cabinet lighting, and downlight fixtures.

Accent Lighting

Adding drama and style to your home décor, accent lighting is a great way to highlight your unique wall arts or colorful furniture. It is also used to brighten up the dull areas or corners of your room. It’s a kind of concentrated light that focuses light on the specific point of interest that you would like to highlight. Accent lighting is more commonly used in art shows, museums, and exhibitions. Recessed light, tape, extrusion fixtures, wall fixtures, and track light; are mostly used to create accent light.
