While ambient light comes from the main lighting source in the room, for example a ceiling lamp, the accent light is intended to complement the ambient lighting and provide more depth. You can use it to direct the attention to a focal point, such as an art object, such as a sculpture or a painting, or to highlight some room elements (for example, niches).
- Put the light on what you want to be seen
By using accent light, you have the opportunity to direct people’s attention to those places or things in your home that you want them to notice, and it may require the help of a Littleton electrician nearby. Accent light can amplify the visual and emotional effect better than many other tricks.
- Try backlighting or up lighting
Place a light source under, behind or right on an accent piece and see what a remarkable presence it becomes.
- Light variators can make your life more beautiful
Variators allow you can change the light intensity, so you can use them to control even better the effects of the accent light. You can amplify the light or reduce it, to create the aesthetic effect and atmosphere you want, not to mention that you can also use them to control energy consumption and increase the life of the bulbs.
