Layering is the art of installing the right type of light in the right area to create a functional space in a comfortable ambiance.
Layering is divided in two branches – task or functional lighting, which is the primary source of lighting and enables you to conduct chores, and mood lighting, which is the secondary source of lighting and enables you to create a comfortable environment indoors.
Although mood lighting is a secondary source of lighting, it is a significant fixture in your home as it adds value to your interior design and creates the kind of atmosphere you want. By adding the type of mood lighting to a specific area in your home, you can actually create the vibe you want!
