Always have 3 sources of light – Natural, Task & Ambient.
Every room should have natural sunlight through a window or door. This is the cleanest light, it brightens up our day & keeps indoor plants alive.
Task light is usually your ceiling lights. This illuminates the room so you can use it safely. This is usually all or nothing lighting.
Ambient lighting refers to lamps or speciality lights. This can soften a room, make it feel completely different than it usually does & can make it feel like home. A lamp or pendant light can highlight your décor, set a mood or help you wind down at night. As well as saving on power costs.
