Accent lights are directional lights whose main purpose is to provide visual separation in a room. They’re secondary lights in a room and, as a rule of thumb, they should be three to five times brighter than the ambient light level. Wall-mounted fixtures, such as sconces, are a good example of accent lights, as are table and floor lamps.

Task lighting provides the primary light in a room and is ideally six to ten times brighter than the room’s ambient light. It’s used to increase illumination above ambient levels at workspaces. Carefully chosen task lighting can minimise the need for overhead lights; something that is helpful in conserving energy.
