Lighting is one of the most important features in the designs of any household, as it is the feature which looks to offer tone and mood to an interior for a more suitable theme for the purpose of the room. Layering the lighting within your home will help to give a more effective and relevant style of light to the household, so it is vital that you spend the time to structure your lighting in the way that is best suited to the image and purpose of the interiors. There are three main types of light for use inside of an interior, ambient, task, and accent, which can either seem incredibly daunting or quite familiar depending on how much experience and knowledge you have of the topic. Keep reading to find out how to use each style of light to your advantage to create the perfect lighting theme for your home!
Ambient lighting is probably the most widely seen and used style of light within any household; it is the basic style of light that creates atmosphere within the interiors whilst also giving a useful wash of illumination around the room. There isn’t really a particular style of fitting that creates ambient light, instead it is a combination of multiple fittings around the interior working together to produce a wonderful lighting theme within your home. You can combine a range of fittings to create the perfect form of ambient light inside of your home, with table lamps and floor lamps offering a soft and soothing glow to the areas that surround them.

The next form of lighting to take a look at is task light, which is the most practical style of illumination you can bring into a household, offering light that is suitable for a specific purpose and making a space far more useful. Task lights tend to give a direct and focused beam to a certain space, lighting it up for a clearer view which is sure to allow you to complete the activity with greater accuracy and precision, leading to a better result.
