Understanding the different functions of lighting - Using the right light for the job

Understanding the different functions of lighting
Today we are blessed to find a wide variety of home lighting tools to use to light up our homes and lives. Each homeowner will seek different goals about how to enhance certain parts of their home or yard, but in effect home lighting all starts with understanding what different lighting does. Ultimately there are only two kinds of home lighting. Lighting that provides light for the purpose of use i.e. to read by or to see the furniture so that you don't stub your toe. This kind of home lighting will be referred too as utility lighting. Second, lighting that is simply used for decoration. Candlelight or gaslight fits into this category for the most part unless one lives in an area that has no electricity. Yes, there are still places that do not have electricity. This kind of lighting will be referred to as decorative lighting.the EggLite is excellent for decorative lighting, because of the variable color lenses.

Ideally utility lighting can be hidden from view so as to only see the light produced to enhance and benefit your life activities. Most home lighting today does not allow the homeowner to hide utility lights successfully and therefore most utility lighting needs to be decorative to at least some extent. Utility lighting is used in every house regardless of who built it or who lives there. It is a part of our lives but you don't have to have fixtures and such that detract from good useful light. To use the lighting fixtures that are accessible homeowners should define what they want to use the light for and then seek to find either a light that can be easily hidden or that looks good. Realize that utility lighting should help create a welcome environment (read our other home lighting articles for more information on this subject). Lamps are useful in generating utility lighting that has a decorative look to the fixture but often times not enough light is produced or the desired effect its not totally reached.

Decorative lighting can help with emotion or simply enhance your home and home lighting. Often candles are used to set a mood or create an atmosphere. Home lighting can be significantly improved with the use of decorative lighting. Most garden lights are purchased to fulfill the need of decorative lighting. Post lights and path lights create a warm and welcome environment for visitors and friends. Home lighting doesn't have to begin and end in the garden. Inside your home decorative lighting can perpetuate a mood or relax you after a hard day at work. Most people do not think about it but how your home lighting is arranged can greatly affect many facets of your life including your health. Some current lighting trends are moving towards health lighting and people have always sought the perfect tan using light.
Ultimately each individual must decide on his or her own home lighting needs. We suggest planning and using whatever works to develop a beautifully lighted home and life.
