There are many different home accent lighting design ideas
both for inside and outside of your home. When decorating the interior of your
home, you will need to know what accent lighting is and the different types of accent
lights. When designing the exterior of your home, you will need to know some
different types of outdoor accent lights and the best places to install

Indoor Accent

Accent lighting is a light directed
to highlight things in a room such as art or decorative objects. A good accent
light will be subtle, so people will notice what you are illuminating and not
so much the way that it is lit. Ambient lighting is the basic lighting in a
room. Never just rely on a bunch of table lamps for this. They would not provide
the most ideal illumination. Other lights you should not rely on for ambiance are floor lamps and ceiling pendants.

idea for kitchens, stairwells and behind your TV. LED lights turn an ordinary
room or area of your home into a tasteful and elegant styled area. If you use your accent lighting effectively, you will without a doubt add
comfort and character to your home. Some ideas include simple plug-in puck
lights under the kitchen cabinets, track lighting in a hallway or mini accent
lights above wall art or family photos. LED lighting can be used in any room as
well and under furniture or along the bottom of cabinets to add subtle
character and intrigue to any room.
