Provide the Best Lighting for Your Guest
June 12, 2019
Proper lighting is essential in creating a functional space, optimizing a user’s health and wellbeing, and enhancing a room’s design. It’s important to identify the purpose of the room in order to determine the reason for the light, whether it be task, accent, ambient, or decorative lighting in the room.
Task lighting is used to illuminate an area for a specific task, providing a focused, localized, and higher level of brightness.
Ambient lighting provides uniform lighting throughout the space and establishes the mood.
Accent lighting uses directional control to focus a light source at specific items to create a focal point.
Decorative lighting enhances the look of the space as a design element, while also contributing to task or ambient lighting.
The location and direction of the light source determines whether the light is direct or indirect. Use direct light shining straight at the object for task lighting, and use indirect lighting with LEDs pointed outwards away from the object for ambient lighting.
