Methods Of Indoor Or Home Lighting Techniques

By Eden Bouskila

There are different types of home lighting techniques which have been popular in many homes for some time. These indoor lighting methods depend upon a person’s overall preference in terms of practical or aesthetic effect.

General lighting standards are usually ceiling fixtures that are a common part of many homes, as this is the best method of down light distribution for any given area. There are also different types of ceiling lights such as fluorescent lights which are attached to a flat surface ceiling, or the more popular and stylish recessed lighting that is embedded into a hole in the ceiling, with a lamp holder that reflects the light to achieve better effect.

A technique known as track lighting is a set of individual fixtures that can be distributed in an artistic fashion either for the ceiling or the wall. This is usually found in bedrooms or living rooms that have significant art deco themes.

Soffits, or undersides of certain areas such as archways, are also lighted with fixtures in order to provide aesthetic effect for that particular area. These are popular for large residential structures that have areas boasting of decorative wall finishes, therefore requiring additional lighting accents with the use of different gadgets.

Upward lighting methods are also utilized in many homes, and these are used to decorate alcoves with either fluorescent, neon, or rope lights. They act as a backlight to give an overall ambient background effect to certain areas of the home.

Another form of accent lighting uses a sconce light, which is a wall mounted type of lamp that adjusts to light upwards or downwards. There is also the torchiere which is solely an up light in the form of a floor lamp that is lighted to accent a given area.

There was also a form of lighting that was known as the illuminated ceiling, popular around 1960 to 1970. This type of ceiling makes use of diffuser panels which are hung below light fixtures that have been attached to the original ceiling, the effect being a totally different ambiance.

Depending upon one’s overall needs or styles, the home can be a great place to experiment with lighting effects and how they seem to change the overall look with different settings. General lighting or accent lighting fixtures are always available on the market, and these all play a part in enhancing and accenting residential homes.
