Task lighting is brighter lights positioned in areas where specific tasks will be undertaken that require clear vision. This could be in the form of a reading lamp, or spotlighting above kitchen worktops. Also providing additional light to a specific area is accent lighting. These are lights that highlight a particular feature in the room, such as a painting on the wall and making it a focal point. Accent lighting can help to distract the eye away from less desirable areas in the space too!
In most rooms it is advisable to use multiple light sources in order to create the right feel. Interior designers often refer to these multiple sources as layers of light. These start with general ambient lighting, with task lighting and/or accent lighting adding additional layers. Let's explain this in more detail. Ambient lighting is the general illumination of the space. Natural sunlight provides good ambient lighting during the day, but ceiling or wall lights are usually used for ambient lighting when the sunlight has faded.
Ambient Lighting - For those not a 100% sure on what this type of lighting actually involves, it simply provides an area or room with general illumination. In terms of wall lights for an ambient effect, if the room has high ceilings you can install sconces high up on the wall. Regardless of whether you utilize wall sconces or ceiling ones, good ambient illumination should not be harsh but should still flood the room with enough brightness that you are able to see and move around.
