Also called “natural light” ambient is the most common type of lighting. The purpose of ambient lighting is to cover an entire space with an even amount of light so that there are no glares or shadows.
This type is the main luminosity source for just about every room, possibly your entire home. These are a functional type of light because it allows you to enjoy the room as if it were sunny outside. It is the favorite for most people especially for kitchen and living room areas.
Task lighting is also a functional form of lighting. The functional purpose is to help you perform a task (hence the name), not enjoyment. This is achieved with a focused beam of light. Science shows that a contrasting bright light to the rest of the room stimulates the brain to help keep you awake and concentrate.
If you have ever noticed that a certain type of light helps you focus, you most likely are using task lighting. Lamps and desk lights are great examples of these forms.
Accent lighting uses a focused ray of light to shine on an area or object. The difference between accent and task lighting is that the first are meant to draw attention to what it’s shining on. The light itself can also be the focus, such as Christmas lights. These are mainly used for decoration rather than function. other examples are lights that shine on a piece of art or display case. A spotlight is a form of accent lighting. Many people use that in the yard or outside as well.
Highly recognizable and well known, the chandelier hardly needs introduction. This form of lighting has been around for centuries and is often associated as being a traditional, classy form of lighting.
Chandeliers are suspended from the ceiling. Instead of it just being one light at the end of the suspension, chandeliers branch out to hold multiple lights. Often, they can resemble upside down trees, but modern designs do not make this a hard fast rule.
Chandeliers are considered elegant and can be contemporary It will most likely be situated in gathering areas, such as over the dining room table.
A pendant is a light fixture that has a single lamp suspended from the ceiling. It differs from a chandelier because it is just one light instead of being many. As it is just one light, it is common to see many of them next to each other.
Pendants are modern styles, can be highly decorative, and are very versatile. Depending on the size of the light fixture, pendant lights can be used for ambient, task, or accent lighting!
Pendant lights are most often seen where decoration is important. The home entrance, dining room, and living room are rooms are great locations for them.
Flushed or Semi Flushed Lights
These types of lights are placed directly flush against the ceiling or almost touching it. They are probably the most common types of lighting, are standard, and affordable.
These types of lights can be located anywhere. There is a good chance that you will see them in most bedrooms, if not everywhere else. Despite being standard lights, flushed lights come in many varieties for those that like to be decorative.
Track lights contains multiple lamp fixtures attached to a long connecting structure, known as the track. Track bars were traditionally straight but can also be curvy to fit any room shape. Lights on the track can be pointed in a specific direction adding accent lighting to your home.
Recessed lights are installed directly inside the ceiling, not from the ceiling. They are placed directly into electrically wired holes with the wiring hiding in the ceiling. If these mounting holes do not already exist in your ceiling, you may need to dramatically alter your ceiling, which can be a lot of work.
Recessed lighting is a very modern and trendy form of illumination today. Most people want their recessed lights to have dimming capabilities as an added benefit. This will make your home feel like a museum or movie theater. With this functionality, recessed lights can be both ambient, task, or accent lights.

Cost of Light Installation in Ventura County
The cost of light installation in Ventura County is based on several factors. The more complicated the installation, the higher the cost. Here are the aspects we consider by increasing difficulty:
Do you need new wiring? No wiring is usually needed if we are replacing an older light. If it’s adding a new light, then wiring and possibly a new light switch will need to be installed. The more wiring that’s required, the more the light will cost to be installed.
We will also need to know how to hide new wiring. The easiest location is between walls and in the ceiling. In condominiums however, it is hard to go through the ceiling. Condos sometimes also have concrete walls where making holes is difficult. If we are unable to hide the wires, we will have to encase them in wood molding or metal conduits. The choice is purely for design. Many people prefer wood in their homes.
The amount of wiring and coverings required is not always easy to see if you’re not an electrician. Sometimes wiring doesn’t just go to the closest wall, but to the electrical panel, which could be in a different room. Maybe even a sub panel in some cases.
