4 Lighting can be categorised into four types. Explore each link to learn more about each type Ambient lighting (or general lighting) is seen as the starting point for lighting a space or a room. It makes up the "base" amount of light in a room. It is the best way to light a space. Ambient light can come from down lights mounted in the ceiling, ceiling lights in the surface of the ceiling, or table and floor lamps. These types of fixtures diffuse light over a large area. Accent lighting - considered as "layers of light" when lighting a space; accent lighting is directional light aimed at an object or feature in a space. It is a good way to make something stand out in the space. Flood lights, spot lights, track lights. Shining a light at a painting is a good example. Task Lighting - It is a way to provide more light on a specific area to perform a task that requires more light than the ambient fixtures can give. Task lighting fixtures try to illuminate the entire space. Desk lamps, ceiling pendant fixtures, and appliance lights are all good examples of task lighting fixtures. Decorative lighting - Chandeliers, light strips, pendants, sconces and even candles are all examples of light fixtures that draw attention to themselves and add character to the room being lighted In this space write down some additional information about these types lighting. You will need to use the computer and research these 4 types of lighting. ________________________________________________________________ What types of lighting do you have in your home? _________________________________________________________________ Do you use a type of lighting more in a specific room in your house – why? __________________________________________________________________ What are the variety of materials used in the production of lighting – what effect do they create? __________________________________________________________________
