Some applications for landscape lighting include the use of small floodlights whose beams can be adjusted to showcase shrubs and trees or the side of a house. Walkway lamps provide downlight for safe passage to a house along a sidewalk or path. Blooming flowers, shrubs, fountains and pools can be showcased with landscape lighting and there are low wattage bulbs available in a variety of colors as well, for dramatic effects.
General Lighting is used to illuminate an entire room, this can be accomplished with chandeliers, ceiling or wall mounted fixtures, recessed or track lights. You can double the amount of light if it is reflected on a mirror, a wall or white ceiling. Task lighting is used to illuminate a particular area. For non-dazzling light when working, hide it with some kind of screen, always trying to focus in avoiding shadows on the work area. It can be provided by recessed and track lighting, pendant lighting and under cabinet lighting, as well as by portable floor and desk lamps.
In the living room, look for light effects to highlight areas where there are paintings, sculptures or plants. A chandelier or pendant light can be ideal to illuminate the dining table, or you can also place several small hanging lights. In bedrooms install a general lights, put lamps on the bedside tables for reading, and lights in the closet area. In children rooms utilize dimmable wall lamps instead of floor lamps or table lamps.
