Interior design and lighting
It's important to know that there should be a variety of lighting sources in a space. Below are the 3 types of light sources.
Ambient lighting which provides overall lighting for the room.
Task lighting which is specific to an activity.
Accent lighting which is used for highlighting objects or places.
Not only do these light (technically light fixtures) provide a functional use but they can be beautiful as well.
So next time you are going to update your bedroom for example, think about some new bedside table lamps (task lighting - for reading). Or if you are going to update your dining room, find that chandelier that makes people go WOW when they walk in the room!
