3 Layers of Light Checklist

Lighting Check List

Designers recommend that rooms have 3 layers of light. Try to balance:

Overall:  These lights are chandeliers, ceiling pendants or fans. Provide overall illumination. 

Task: These lights are under cabinet lighting, seat-height scones or portable lamps and are designed for reading and tasks.

Accent: Small lamps or wall fixtures for accent on walls or artwork. They warm a space. 

Whether in a bedroom, kitchen or bath, overall, task and accent lighting have different roles but together create a perfect mix.
