In most rooms it is advisable to use multiple light sources in order to create the right feel. Interior designers often refer to these multiple sources as layers of light. These start with general ambient lighting, with task lighting andor accent lighting adding additional layers. Let's explain this in more detail. Ambient lighting is the general illumination of the space. Natural sunlight provides good ambient lighting during the day, but ceiling or wall lights are usually used for ambient lighting when the sunlight has faded.
Now we can take the color of our light source that we are looking at and compare it with the Color Rendering Index (CRI). The CRI of a light source compares the color of the source to a Black Body color index of the same color temperature. The maximum Color Rendering Index number that is possible is 100. The higher the CRI of your light source the more natural colors will appear when illuminated by it. Light sources with a low CRI will distort the colors that are viewed with them.High (above 80) CRI is preferred in the home. ENERGY STAR requires that qualified fixtures have lamps with CRI above 80. Daylight and all incandescent and halogen light sources have a CRI of 100 and they are excellent at rendering color. For a warm lamp, the CRI is a measure of how close to incandescent color it is, and for a very cool lamp the CRI is how close to daylight it is. The lamps CRI should be listed in the Manufacture's literature.
Another way to light your house or your landscape is with LED lighting. LED lighting is the newest in lighting technology. LED lights are lights that are composed of tiny little bulbs. Some LED lights are composed of many LED bulbs and can be almost as bright as a regular light. LED lights are very good because they require very little electricity and can even be used together with solar power. For those of you who have a lot of sun, for your landscape lighting, try using solar lights with LED bulbs instead of regular low voltage lighting. You can save on your electric bill and each solar landscape light has its own solar panel. Many of these solar landscape LED lights are designed to generate and store electricity during the day and then when it is dark enough, they turn on and stay on all night.
