Hello and Happy Friday!
Let’s talk lighting today…
There are three basic types of lighting that work together in your home. They are Ambient, Task and Accent. Today, we’ll discuss AMBIENT LIGHTING. Ambient lighting is also known as General Lighting and it provides an area with overall illumination. It radiates a comfortable level of brightness without glare and allows you to see and walk about safely. In some spaces such as laundry rooms, the ambient lighting also serves as the primary source of task lighting.
Chandeliers, ceiling or wall-mounted fixtures, recessed or track light are a great way to accomplish this type of lighting inside the home. You can also use lanterns mounted on the outside of the home as well. Having a central source of ambient light in all rooms is fundamental to a good lighting plan.
Next week we will talk about Task Lighting. Until then, have a great weekend!
