Accent Lighting Brings Life to a Room

Accent lighting is a great way to enhance the atmosphere and add visual interest to a room.

Here are some tips on how to use accent lighting effectively.

Determine the focal point

Decide on the feature of the room you want to highlight, such as a painting, a sculpture, or a bookcase.

Choose the right light fixtures: Select lighting fixtures that will complement the style of the room and the focal point you want to highlight. For example, a small, recessed spotlight can be used to highlight a piece of artwork on the wall, while a floor lamp can be used to illuminate a plant in the corner.

Decide on the lighting intensity: The intensity of the accent lighting should be determined by the type of ambiance you want to create. For a relaxed and cozy atmosphere, consider using low-level lighting, while brighter lighting can create a more energetic and livelier atmosphere.

Position the lighting fixtures: Position the fixtures in a way that will highlight the focal point without causing any glare or harsh shadows. Experiment with different angles and distances until you achieve the desired effect.

Consider color temperature: The color temperature of the lighting can also affect the mood of the room. Warmer hues can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere, while cooler tones can be more energizing.



Use accent lighting sparingly. While accent lighting can be a great way to enhance the atmosphere of a room, it should be used sparingly to avoid overwhelming the space with too much light. 
Use accent lighting to create a focal point and draw attention to specific areas of the room, but don’t overdo it.
