Types of Directional Lights

Types of Directional Lights

Directional lights tend to get overlooked when it comes to lighting types. This is not to say that they aren't as useful as some of the more recognizable lighting, such as chandeliers and pendants. Directions lights simply do their job without glitz and glamor like other types of lighting — and we love them for that. Here at Carol's Lighting located in Humble and Conroe, Texas, a local lighting store, we offer all types of lighting to meet your needs. Below, we'll take a look at the different types of directional lighting we offer. Stop by today.


What Is Directional Lighting?

Directional lighting is the type of lighting you see when you use a flashlight. Its light rays shine in one direction and do not stop until their maximum length has been reached. However, this type of lighting can be adjusted to any direction you prefer. Directional lighting can be used to create a specific mood or atmosphere in a room. It can also be used to highlight a piece of art or a piece of furniture.


Directional Ceiling Light

Directional ceiling lights are very common in homes in Texas. You'll often have one or two mounted lights on a swivel that you can then adjust to shine light beams to the particular area you are wanting illuminated. These are great for reading nooks and task lighting, such as where you may sew, cook, or have your workbench.


Directional Track Lighting

Directional track lighting has become quite popular in recent years due to its versatility. You'll find directional track lighting most frequently used in the kitchen. This is because so many tasks occur in the kitchen that you really need strong light beams in every corner, and track lighting excels at this. In addition, directional lighting has become popular in bedrooms for similar reasons. You can have a light that shines over you while in bed, making reading in bed easy to wind down after a long day and week.


Directional Accent Lighting

Many people use directional lighting to highlight a certain feature of their home. Perhaps they want to highlight their crown molding, artwork, or plants. Anything that homeowners love can be highlighted with accent lighting. This can also help to make your home unique and customized to you. You'll draw attention to a certain item or feature that you love, and therefore you'll notice it more, too.
