Selecting lighting for a space is a multi-faceted process that takes many key factors into account. We take into account the following criteria because the goal is to provide visual functionality and comfort to the spaces: purpose, quantity or intensity of light, quality of light, color temperature of the light, type of fixture, how the fixture will be mounted, and if it is a decorative fixture. We apply these criteria to all of the projects that we design, specify or supply.
One common lighting mistake we see made is assuming that one type or layer of lighting will suffice when designing a lighting plan for a space. Experience tells us that lighting works best when it’s used in layers, and especially when indirect lighting is integrated into a space in combination with accent or task lighting. Below, we look at three primary types of indoor lighting to consider adding to each space.
- Ambient Lighting: Also known as general lighting, ambient light fills the majority of the room and allows you to move around safely. It typically emanates from recessed lighting, track lighting, or wall-mounted fixtures. Occupancy or vacancy sensors are typically integrated in our lighting control systems to operate the lights during times when the space is in use, and turn the lights off when the space is vacant.
- Accent Lighting: Accent lighting is used to highlight a particular focal point, such as a company logo, a slogan, or a piece of art. Picture lights, wall-mounted-fixtures or track lighting are common, and dimmers integrated in our lighting control systems are often used on these features to provide the proper focused amount of lighting.
- Task Lighting: Task lighting is used to assist you in completing a task, and typically pinpoint a specific small area within the space. These include pendant lights, spot lights, or desk lamps.
