Lighting is one of the key elements of Interior Designing. Various types of lights are utilized in different ways to achieve the best out of the space. Here we have listed the different Lighting arrangements in Interior Designing.

General Lighting:

General lighting is the overall lighting that illuminates the entire space. Up-lights and down-lights are the two elements of general lighting.
