Down lighting can sometimes be referred to as general lighting. Once it was simply the only light source in a room — that single fixture in the middle of the ceiling. If this is your only option placement and quantity of fixtures are the keys to attaining a balanced lighting level while reducing dark corners. Pot lights are also considered downlighting.

Visual cuing provides an additional reference point for judging distance or depth when entering a space or approaching objects. The lighting at the base of these cabinets or toe-kick lighting contrasts well with the dark floor and midtone cabinetry creating a readily visible contrast. But people will just think it's cool.

Downward pendants bring light close to a key surface like a dining table or side table which helps create a sense of intimacy.

Access to more sunlight can have profound effects on the efficiency of your home’s building envelope or skin. It’s always best to assess your house from a whole-building design approach. In new constructions we have the liberty to consider daylighting from the initial design stages. Skylights can be an integrated part of the design of a house allowing the interior to feel as though it’s connected with the exterior. The proportion of glass compared to the rest of the house can be calculated to reach certain energy-efficiency goals.

Simple skylights can be used to bring extra light to a room as a substitute for artificial lighting throughout the day. More complex skylights can even offer an access point for roof maintenance (ideal for checking up on a green roof for example). Skylights can be fixed vented tinted or even combined with an automated shutter system and can include a fly screen. A light tube on the other hand is good for rooms that don’t have a ceiling at roof level. It’s basically a reflective pipe that bounces the daylight down to the room where it is needed. Light tubes can be combined with lighting fixtures so the same area that lets in daylight during the day can double as a light for the evening.
