Task Lighting: Lighting for functional purposes such as reading, studying, etc. Such lights include desk lamps, pendant lamps, or under-cabinet lights in kitchens.
When placing ceiling lights, ensure that they are spaced evenly and at a distance of two feet from all four sides. In a large living room, this is particularly necessary. While recessed lighting does help create a mood, it is not great as ambient light (light that allows you to move around comfortably in a space). Also, it is not great in a space with high ceilings and will just waste energy. In smaller rooms, an upward-facing chandelier with a dimmer, along with other portable lamps and accent lights will provide enough ambient lighting.
Has the ability to create a dynamic environment with diffusion, reflection, shadows, and light. This depends on the material used―metal and glass for reflection and sparkle, opaque or translucent shades/holders for glow.
4.) Downlights are ceiling fixtures which project light downward, as their name implies. There are two types of Downlights - Recessed downlights and Surface Mounted downlights. Recessed downlights are fitted into a space inside the ceiling, also called High Hats. Some High Hats direct light towards the wall and these fixtures are called wall washers. Wall washers are usually used to light objects on or along the wall such as paintings, tapestries, bookcases, draperies and other window treatments. Another type of downlight, which is a very specialized type of a ceiling fixture, is the Focusing Lens Projector. This is specially used to highlight paintings, sculpture, vases or other works of art. You have a choice between either floodlamps or spotlamps with your recessed downlights. While a floodlamp casts a broad beam, a spotlamp casts a narrow beam of light. Surface Mounted Downlights are easier to install than recessed mounted downlights since no cutting of the ceiling is required. Surface mounted downlights do not disappear into the ceiling. Matching the color of the surface mounted downlights with the color of the ceiling will achieve a unified look.
