If in doubt, remember to settle for overall illumination or ambient light first. Follow it up with task lighting which is the second layer and one which gives background light some texture. Accent light, the third layer, is more form than function but should not be missed because it highlights key design elements. It can also be used to break up a wall devoid of wall hangings.
Lighting a Living Room. Living rooms require three types of lighting: ambient, task and accent. Ambient light provides a room with overall illumination, task lighting directs light to certain work zones, and accent lights highlight specific objects. But within those basic requirements are tons of options. Whether you want something fun like this room from Jonathan Adler, or something more subdued, there is a virtually endless supply of living room lighting ideas for every room.
Small skylights also mean you have greater control over the insulation of the house, and they can be conveniently placed between existing sections of the structural framework. You can even use multiple smaller skylights to give the room a more even illumination during the daytime or turn to custom crafted retractable skylights for control at the touch of a button. Another hot trend is skylights alongside the dining room wall that bring a sense of drama to the space as sunlight beautifully highlights the accent wall!
Kitchen track lighting can be used to brighten up areas of your kitchen that would otherwise be in shadow. This also gives your kitchen a fashionable look. If you are considering this type of lighting, you will find that it has more advantages than disadvantages.
