Understanding Your Lighting
When it comes to your lighting, it’s important to understand a few things about it, such as how much illumination is too much for a certain space. You also want to know how to layer your lighting, and our team can help you with every aspect. With ambient or general lighting, you want it to spread across the majority of the room. If the overhead light is the only fixture that’s on, then you should be able to see fairly well as you enter or cross the room.
However, you don’t want the ambient light to be the only fixture in the room. Layering your lighting requires accent fixtures, as well as task fixtures in certain places, such as the kitchen or the home office. Your accent lights are your table and floor lamps, your wall sconces, and any other fixtures that provide illumination for a certain part of a room. Task lights are fairly self-explanatory, as they help you complete tasks and chores, such as chopping vegetables or working on paperwork at your desk.
With our assistance, you can discover ambient, accent, and task lighting that make your home feel more complete. Your home will also function better, and we can help you find the right lighting controls so that you can set up “zones” in each room or area of the house.
