lighting tips

One Source Lighting in Billings centers itself around the concept of multiple light sources, for both residential and commercial settings. This involves the application of task lighting, ambient (or general) lighting, and accent lighting. Multiple light sources in a commercial space can give employees a better visual balance through the use of lighted vertical surfaces and the ability to adjust the lighting levels. With the use of task lighting in the workplace, it gives multiple light sources and flexibility in light levels. In a residential setting, it allows the space to adapt to different functions, providing different scenes for relaxation, dining, cleaning, food prep, intimacy, and office tasks.

Task Lighting — helps to perform specific tasks such as cooking, reading, hobbies, and homework. It can be provided by recessed as well as pendant lighting, portable lamps, step lights, under cabinet lighting, and more.

Ambient Lighting — the overall illumination in a space. It produces a comfortable level of brightness, enabling one to see and walk about safely. Typical fixtures used for ambient light are chandeliers, ceiling or wall mounted fixtures, and recessed or track lighting, as well as lanterns mounted outside the home. Ambient lighting is fundamental to any lighting project.

Accent Lighting — adds drama by creating visual interest. Create spotlight focal points to highlight paintings, plants, sculptures, and other prized possessions, as well as the texture of a wall or outdoor landscaping.

There are numerous resources to accomplish whatever your imagination can dream of and your pocketbook can afford. At One Source, we can help you achieve the perfect layers of light through the appropriate ambient, accent, and task lighting.
