Lighting isn’t just a necessity for modern life. Many of today’s residential electric lighting fixtures and techniques are more like art than engineering. Designers figure out how to use lighting that’s appealing and that also corresponds to the mood of the client. By using the right fixtures, a lighting designer can create feelings of joy, peace, and so much more. Here are three common types of lighting in CESCO’s residential electrical supply warehouse that can be used to create a particular mood in your Rock Hill, SC home.

  • Ambient or generalized lighting: This is “normal” lighting that’s used to brighten large areas of a room. In many cases, these don’t feature big designs or decorations. Examples of ambient lighting are recessed lights, architectural lights, and chandeliers.
  • Accent lighting: Accent lighting is where art and design meet. Many people enjoy these fixtures because they’re beautiful and often unique. Trends in accent lighting include vintage Edison-style bulbs, mid-century modern, Art Deco, and oversized fixtures.
  • Task lighting: Task lighting is used for specific areas and spaces. Add it under cabinets or on top of tables—it all depends on what your particular needs are. Pendants and wall scones are popular choices in this category.
