One major role of lighting in the interior setting is functionality. Lighting needs to serve a purpose, or it simply wastes electricity. Chandeliers are not only used in large, open foyers, entryways and rooms because of their centrally themed placement but also because they provide excellent illumination for the room. Wall lights add length and size, visually, to an entryway hall, as well as light the way. Consider the style of lighting you want to ensure you get the best directional or luminescent type for the setting. Look into task-specific lighting for desks and other work areas where functionality is more important than overall room illumination.
Choosing a sconce to highlight a picture on the wall of your living room or to illuminate your hallway can be styled very differently from the sconce you chose for your bedroom reading. The sconce that will be used as accent lighting should be tailored to the item it is illuminating. For example, if you are showcasing a picture on the wall, I would suggest a light that can be angled and directed specifically at the piece you are featuring. When illuminating your hallway, a more traditionally-styled wall sconce could be used. A sconce that does not direct the light into one particular direction, but illuminates an overall space instead.
It always helps to know the proper terms to describe a fixture you're using. Here are definitions of some of the more common words and phrases used with recessed lighting:
While all incandescent lights give a warm yellowish color, LEDs come in a wide range of colors, from purple to red. However, the most commonly used types come in the yellow/white spectrum. The color of an LED light is measured in Kelvins. A higher number of Kelvin indicates whiter light, while lower Kelvin indicates yellow light.
