Lighting is one of the most important design elements in your home, setting the tone for each room. Three different types of interior lighting establish the feel of a space:
- Ambient lighting fills a room with bright light or a mellow glow.
- Task lighting focuses a beam of light on a work area.
- Accent lighting highlights art or an architectural feature.
A variety of ceiling lighting styles are available, from sleek chrome and steel fixtures to period-specific antiques or reproductions. These are often part of lighting collections that have coordinating wall lighting, sconces or lamps and shades.
