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.
Recessed lights are installed into an opening in the ceiling so they don’t stick out at all. For barely-there recessed kitchen lights, you should consider the Lithonia Lighting 4 inch Matte White Recessed Baffle Integrated LED Lighting Kit, which comes with everything you need to light up your home.
Properly placed task kitchen lighting will provide just the right illumination for tasks such as reading recipes and prepping vegetables. The best place for task lighting is between the work surface and a person’s head, so lighting placed under cabinets is ideal. And strip lights are a popular choice for this space.
