Accent lighting adds drama to a room by creating visual interest. As part of an interior design scheme, it is used to draw the eye to house-plants, paintings, sculptures and other prized possessions. It can also be used to highlight the texture of a brick or stone wall, window treatments or outdoor landscaping.
To be effective, accent lighting requires as least three times as much light on the focal point as the general lighting surrounding it.Accent lighting is usually provided by recessed and track lighting or wall-mounted picture lights. Using this plan will create an atmosphere that is perfect for any room and more importantly serve to provide functionality and practicality for the space and activities one undertakes in it.
