Lighting Design Factors
Lighting Design Layers
Most lighting designers think in terms of three main lighting categories:
These are called “general” or “ambient” because they are simply used to make an interior space visible.
Task lighting is directed lighting toward a specific area to give more detail to objects and provide safe passage.
Accent lighting is used to “accentuate” features and add visual interest to an object or area.
Lighting Fixture Types
It can be useful to sort lighting fixture types into a couple main categories to make your lighting design a little easier:
Surface-mounted fixtures are visible and are usually flush against the ceiling or wall.
Pendant fixtures hang down from the ceiling by a cord, cable, or chain. They are usually found in dining rooms and kitchens
Recessed lighting is hidden away, usually in a ceiling cavity, so you can’t see the light source directly.
