Transform your space with new home lighting in Collingwood.
Home lighting has a big impact on your quality of life whether you realize it or not. Especially in the winter months, when there are fewer hours of sunlight each day, the interior environment created by your home lighting is important to your comfort and enjoyment of your Collingwood, Ontario home, as well as your sense of safety and security. Lighting helps you see better and complete tasks inside your home, but it also affects the ambience of your home and your mood while you are in it.
When deciding what sort of home lighting you need for each space, you need to consider how you use the room. There are three types of lighting:
- Ambient (or general) lighting provides the overall illumination of each space in your home. It should be bright enough, but should not create unwanted glare.
- Task lighting is most common in kitchens and bathrooms. This lighting provides extra light for the completion of specific tasks, like washing dishes or putting on makeup.
- Accent lighting creates visual interest in your home by drawing the eye to focal points around the room. These lights must be brighter than the ambient light to be effective.
There are many types of lighting fixtures that can be used to light your home. There are ceiling-mounted fixtures, wall-mounted fixtures, chandeliers, hallway fixtures, pendant lights, track lighting, rail lighting, recessed fixtures, bath and vanity lights, and even under-cabinet fixtures for kitchens and laundry rooms.
