Last week we talked about lighting and that in order to properly illuminate your home, you should have three different types of lighting- ambient, task, and accent.  This week, we will be looking further into the second type of lighting: Task Lighting.

Task lighting focuses on function. When looking at your room, determine what types of activities will be performed in this space. Task lightning is used to illuminate those areas where finer tasks are being completed such as reading, writing, food prep, and more. By adding focused lighting to these areas, it should prevent glare and eyestrain, making everyday activities easier. 
Task lighting is used in a wide variety of ways such as:
