First, ambient lighting often provides basic background lighting. Ambient lighting may include recessed, track, or overhead lighting. Next, you will want to consider task lighting. This includes lighting (most often, lamps) that serve a specific purpose. For example, a lamp next to a reading chair or lighting that is underneath the cabinets in a kitchen. Finally, you should consider mood or decorative lighting.
