Once you have planned where your lighting should be positioned, you need to consider the type of light fitting that would suit your home. There are now a wide range of light fittings available, making it easier to find the right colour and style to compliment the period of your home, the existing furniture and other design features. You will need to consider the some practicalities, such as the size of light fitting selected for a particular space and recessed or wall lights can be a better in homes with low ceilings. Many High Street shops only have a limited selection of light fittings that fit in with current interior trends. If you are looking for something specific, or a colour that isn't this season's fashion, then you may have more success with an online lighting specialist such as Lights On Lights Off, who can offer a much wider selection.
Accent Lighting - As its name suggests, accent lighting is used to accent (or highlight) features of interest and should be brighter than any ambient illumination. In a lot of spaces, it is used to add drama to a room, which, in turn, adds a sense of increased appeal. Wall lights used as accent lighting are commonly fitted with dark or opaque shades, as this forces the light to spread out from above and below the fixture, creating an attractive hourglass shape and dramatic shadows. Wall lights are commonly used to draw the eye to artworks, plants and even architectural elements.
Task Lighting - If you don't know what this type of lighting is, the name essentially describes it - whether you are reading, doing homework or cooking, task illumination will help you to perform these tasks. Wall lights can function quite effectively for completing tasks, as long as they are close in and have low hanging fixtures. This will place the sconces at the required height, whether that is illuminating a couch, desk or bench top.
