What is accent lighting?
Accent lights are supplemental light sources in your space that can soften your space and enhance the atmosphere. You generally see accent lighting in outdoor spaces to illuminate a pathway or highlight architectural design or garden art. In indoor spaces, accent lights are used in a variety of ways like backlighting framed art or adding soft undercabinet lighting.
Why add accent lighting to your space?
Many people pick out their main light fixtures and are left with a harsh light and not a very inviting space. Put a dimmer on your main lights and add some accent lights to soften the space. You can create a clean look with custom accent lighting that enhances the atmosphere of your indoor and outdoor spaces. Direct attention to wall hangings and art or position accent lighting low to highlight a hallway. Add presence to your space and wow your guests and customers.
