Changing the lighting in your home can make as big a difference as an entire home renovation. You can use lighting to highlight a painting or object, brighten a room, or even create a relaxing ambience. Not only can installing new lighting change the look and feel of your home, it’s also much less expensive than a home remodel.
Can you barely see your cookbook or cutting board when you’re in the kitchen? Are shadows in your cabinets making the room look dark and gloomy? Installing task or accent lighting will brighten up your spaces and eliminate gloomy shadows.

There are typically three types of lighting that homeowners in Southern Maryland and Northern Virginia use in their homes:
The kitchen and bathroom are two of the most important places in your home to be well-lit. With the wrong lighting, you could burn yourself while cooking or cut yourself shaving in the bathroom. Using a combination of task, accent and ambient light works well in these two rooms, especially:

Recessed lighting can be used as task, accent, or general lighting, and looks great in all styles and types of homes. Installing recessed lighting is a good choice for any homeowner, especially if you want to keep a smooth ceiling surface.
You have tons of options when it comes to recessed lighting installation. Each recessed light is formed of two components—the housing and the trim. The housing refers to the way the lighting is mounted, and the trim is the visible part that frames the bulb.
Installing landscape and outdoor lighting will not only accent your beautiful garden, patio, or pool area, it will also provide extra security and safety to your home. Motion sensors and timers can deter unwanted visitors, and lighting up the walkways through your backyard can reduce the risk of slips and falls. Have a pool or hot tub? Make sure they’re well-lit so the fun can continue after dark.
Different types of outdoor and landscape lighting include, but aren’t limited to:
Under-cabinet, task, and accent lighting reduces shadows that are created by wall cabinets and overhead lighting, providing you with a clearer view. When your cabinet lighting is properly spaced, it will completely eliminate all those dark shadows. If you’re using under-cabinet lighting to get rid of shadows under your kitchen cabinets, it is recommended that you install a light every 20-30 inches over your counter space to ensure there aren’t any shadows left.
You can install task or accent lighting any place you think needs a little extra illumination. This includes:
Ambient lighting provides general light for a room or area. Ambient light can come in the form of chandeliers, pendant lights, or ceiling-mounted fixtures. This type of lighting is usually found in many places of the home and can be installed with a dimmer so you can adjust the amount of light the fixture gives off.
Ceiling-mounted fixtures are excellent sources of ambient light, and wall-mounted fixtures can also be used for general lighting. Your style, the size of the room, and the amount of light needed are all things to consider when choosing the right ambient light.
