What are the different types of lighting?

In order to find the best lighting fixture for each area of your home, it is essential to know what type of lighting is needed. According to Dwell, there are three basic types of home lighting: ambient, accent, and task. Also referred to as general lighting, ambient lighting is when you need to provide light to an entire room at a uniform level. When you want to highlight a specific item, such as a painting, you need to use fixtures that have been made for accent lighting purposes. Task lighting is recommended for areas where you read, write, cook, sew, or perform other tasks that need proper lighting. At Soby One Home Services, we can help you designate what type of lighting each area of your home requires and show you the best fixtures for the different types of lighting you need.

What type of lighting fixtures are best for providing ambient lighting?

When you need to provide general lighting that is dispersed throughout the room, ceiling-mounted fixtures can be a great choice. As you may have guessed from its name, this lighting fixture option is mounted to the ceiling and can feature a shade made from plastic, glass, or fabric that will hide the lightbulb as well as help to diffuse the light more evenly in the area. At Soby One Home Services, we have a variety of ceiling mount options that include flush and semi-flush mounts, chandeliers, and track lighting. Our MA licensed Master and Journeyman Electricians can recommend the right type of ceiling mount fixture for each area of your home that needs ambient lighting, and you can depend on us to properly and quickly install them to provide the perfect amount of light in every room.

What type of lighting fixture works best for accent lighting?

If you are looking for a way to highlight your favorite painting, you need to find fixtures that provide accent lighting. Although ceiling-mounted track lighting is what most people think of when it comes to accent lighting, you can also use sconce lighting fixtures to highlight a focal point. Not only can sconce lights provide the perfect amount of light needed for accent lighting, but they can also add to the style statement you would like to make. At Soby One Home Services, we have a wide variety of sconce lighting fixtures that can work with any type of design aesthetic. From classic decor to modern stylings, you will find both indoor and outdoor sconces, uplight sconces, shadow-casting sconces, LED wall sconces, and more.

What type of lighting fixture works best for task lighting?

No matter what kind of task you are doing, Soby One Home Services can help you provide the right amount of lighting with several different fixture options. For cooking, we recommend under-cabinet task lighting that allows you to see exactly what you are doing when cutting vegetables for your favorite pasta primavera recipe. Whether you prefer tape lights, strip lights, or bar lights, our expert professionals will be sure that your kitchen is sufficiently lighted. Another type of lighting fixture that also provides task lighting, pendant lighting is a great choice when you want to make a unique statement while serving an important purpose. In our pendant lighting fixture inventory, you can choose from multi-light, crystal, and LED pendants that are available in every size, shape, and style. No matter what look you are going for in a certain area of your home, we can help you find the perfect pendant lighting fixture.
