Light provides visibility to other things. A room without windows or sources of artificial light is dark. So, it is all about the visibility of the environment, and our ability to see the things around us. Light is the base of visual perception. Light creates hierarchies, a distinction between important and less important things, divides the space into areas, focuses our attention and also serves as a natural watch. The biological and emotional effects of light are very important, especially in our modern world, overwhelmed by the media.
When you want to draw attention on certain objects in your home, ambient light must be completed with accent light.
What is accent lighting?
It is a focused light, designed to emphasize a focal point. Accent lighting constitutes an extremely effective way to enhance the interior design. It highlights the strong elements, shadowing the others. It is largely used for artworks, shelves with decorations, special pieces of furniture, but also for personal photos.
The accent light can come from different intelligently installed fixtures; some of them can be placed on the wall, right above the pictures, while others are incorporated into the pictures` frames. Alternatively, you can use other types of accent lighting to highlight an entire wall where you placed many of your pictures.
Thanks to the possibility of adjusting the brightness of the light and changing the color temperature, all possible shades can be reproduced to create the desired effect. Changing a light fixture, is something most everyone can do, however it you need wire installation, that is best left to a professional Denver electrician available to hire in your community.
