Accent: Accent lighting is used to highlight a particular focal point, such as a piece of wall art. Picture lights, wall-mounted-fixtures or track lighting are common, and dimmers are often used on these features to provide mood lighting. Task: As the name suggests, task lights are used to assist you in completing a particular function. This could be anything from desk lamps to pendant lights that hang over a kitchen island.
Today, many people are using a combination of different fixture types to get the illumination they want where they want it while keeping the system efficient. On the downside, while surface lights are mounted "up out of the way," they are still visible installations on the ceiling. They tend to break up the expanse, visually, more than recessed lights do. And they do require periodic cleaning because the dust on them is visible.
If you have cabinets above your kitchen counters, you can add extra task lighting with the help of some under-cabinet lights. The Commercial Electric 24" LED White Direct Wire Under Cabinet Lights allow you to easily illuminate your counters with extra light so you can see what you’re doing while cooking.
