When you’re thinking of redecorating your rooms, adding new lighting fixtures is a great way to get started. If you’ve never had to re-decorate your home before, you might not be sure how to go about it when it comes to proper lighting. Did you know that there actually three main lighting types that you can achieve with the many different fixtures?
Depending on what you want to achieve, you can have general / overall lighting, task lighting and accent lighting. Each has a specific functionality and decor aspect that you should not miss. It’s so easy to overspend or simply get the wrong type of lamps because people were not sure what to purchase for which type of lighting!
The ambient lighting, also called general lighting is achieved by using chandeliers or other types of ceiling light fixtures that cast a wide illumination in the entire room. While this light type is not enough to really give proper lighting for everything you are doing in the room, it is enough to have it on when you’re simply watching TV or having a conversation with the members of the family or chit chat with friends.
