Why having good lighting at home is important
Good lighting at home matters because it will affect the functionality of your home space. Be it the kitchen, living room or study, having proper lights will allow you to work more efficiently and safely.
With home lighting solutions, such as downlights and ceiling lamps, you'll be able to illuminate your personal spaces, making them appear larger and hence, more attractive as well.
How to get the best lights for each room
To know what the best light fixtures are to get for your home, you'll first need to know the different forms of lighting: ambient (or general), accent, and task lighting. Each of these three lighting types serve a different purpose and understanding them is the key to outfitting your home with the best lights.
As its name implies, ambient/general lighting creates an 'overall glow' that illuminates surrounding spaces and this can come in the form of cove lights, downlights, track lights or recessed lamps. Spaces that benefit most from ambient lighting include living spaces as well as kitchens where it's necessary to illuminate an entire space for comfort and safety.
On the other hand, accent lighting plays a more decorative role as it's usually focused on an object or a specific part of a space. Examples of accent lights include wall sconces, cove lights and picture lights that can be angled in a specific direction.
Finally, there's task lighting and it is used for specific purposes, like illuminating a work desk or kitchen counter. Ideally, your task lights should be adjustable, both in terms of brightness and position, so that they can better suit your needs. For instance, a dimmable desk lamp will be ideal for preventing eye strain while you're working long hours at your study desk.
