Just like home furnishings, we know that the right lighting is a combination of functionality and style. Lighting design is a key piece of the interior design puzzle and how you experience a space. A well-designed room needs a mix of three basic types of lighting: ambient, task, and accent.
Here’s an overview of the three types of lighting, and some ideas on how to successfully create the desired atmosphere in your home.
Ambient lighting provides overall illumination, aiming for a comfortable level of brightness without any glare. Ambient lighting is often accomplished with ceiling lights and chandeliers. Think of ambient lighting as the base upon which you add all other layers of lighting.
Task lighting is important when performing specific tasks, like reading or getting ready in the bathroom. Table and floor lamps are excellent for living room task lighting, while pendant lighting is ideal for kitchen cooking areas, and bath bars and sconces are perfect for bathrooms.
Accent lighting brings drama and visual interest by creating focal points within a room. This type of lighting, also known as directional lighting, is used to highlight artwork or architectural features. Track lighting and picture lights are a classic go-to for accent lighting.

By layering ambient, task, and accent lighting, you can create a perfectly lit home.
