It is always difficult to have absolute idea about how Lighting would look like when all fixtures are installed and whether it will fulfill your requirement of lightings need yet not wasting it where it’s not required. Constructing a new home or office or would just like to modernize some indoor areas, you will find that making decisions regarding your indoor lighting cannot be an easy task. It is always better to keep it in mind that you are not raising electrical bill by installing new lighting, however you still wish for the lights to be attractive and efficient.
 
To ensure that you will achieve the desired effect for your rooms, it is important that you first understand the four basic types of home lighting.
 
1. Ambient or general lighting : - illuminates entire area. Most of the general illumination has been done by Ceiling lights, Down Lights, Recessed light, and Grille Lights. With advance technology Aash Cube can offer Optimum solution for general lighting by giving the options of Dimming, Changing the colors of light by one click of remote and ensuring saving energy.
 
2. Task Lighting : – Also knows as Directional lighting. It provides enough light to perform the task and give light exactly where you want. Aash Cube can provide LED lights which are meant to be made to fulfill lighting requirements for specific functions. Attractive LED aluminum strips can be use under cabinet, Jewelry showroom, inside cupboard etc.
 
3. Accent Lighting : – It is focused lighting which is used to illuminate a sculpture, piece of art or architectural element. Accent lighting is about three times brighter than the ambient lighting. Aash Cube LED track lights and spot lights are perfect solutions for accent lighting.
 
4. Natural Lighting : – Natural light comes through window, doors and skylights. Depending on the time of the day, season or weather the intensity and brightness of the light changes.
 
When designing Indoor lighting for Energy efficiency, it is better to consider following principles.

• Excessive Light is not necessary; it can generate light pollution and glare.
• Install directional light where needed and reduce ambient light elsewhere
• Use energy efficient lighting drivers, controllers and power supply
• Maximize the use of day lighting
• Use energy efficient LED lighting
