How to choose the right lights for your home?

Lighting plays a great role in how someone perceives your space, setting the mood and vibe of the whole place, more than any decor & design element.

The right lighting not only enhances the look of every room but also helps improve productivity and brings cheerfulness.

But for something so important in the designing of a place, we usually have very little knowledge on how to choose the right home light.

To understand which light is best suitable for your space, you need first to understand the types of lighting and how they are used.

General Lighting

General Lighting, as the name, suggests, to as the main source of illumination in the room. They are erected at a place that ensures that the entire room is well lit. Typical examples would include LED Bulbs, LED tube lights or LED Batten light. You can easily find a variety of General lighting products in the Home Lights section of Jaquar Lighting.

Accent Lighting

Accent Lighting is used to accentuate the look of the decorative pieces and special corners of a room. They draw the attention of the room to that particular object, making it the highlight or centrepiece of the room. Accent Lighting, on one side, can be elegant like fairy lights, scones, LED Strip lights, panel lights, and on another can be LED Spotlights to accentuate beautiful parts of rooms.
