Three Main Forms of Lighting

First is accent lighting, this usually takes the form of your “spotlight” style lighting using a light source to highlight or “accent” an area or item in your space. These focused areas of light create drama or intensity to the desired object or space.

The second is ambient lighting, this is your environmental lighting that sets the tone of the room or space. Here is a prime example. Have you ever been to a hotel with really low ambient lighting? Can feel scary dark and uncomfortable. While too much lighting can be overbearing people can feel exposed. On the other hand places like restaurants utilize this ambient lighting to create more “privacy” If their guest can visually see a certain foot-candle distance from them they feel a false sense of privacy.

The last lighting is task lighting, this is what it sounds like. It is lighting that helps while you are doing a task. Washing dishes, reading, grooming. This lighting can vary on what task you are performing. If you have ever tried to read on the beach you might recall the light bouncing off the pages making it uncomfortable to read.
