Ingress Protection ratings measure the degree of protection a light has against both particles and water. Generally speaking, the higher IP rating, the more protected your light is. Lights that are used in the bathroom or outdoors needs a high IP rating for safe use.

IP rating is split into two parts – the first digit relates to the ingress of dust particles and ranges from 0 (no protection) to 6 (dust tight). The second digit refers to the ingress of moisture and ranges from 0 (no protection) to 8 (protection from complete submersion under pressure).

Accent lighting is not just utilitarian. It creates and complements thoughtful design.

A room might play host to various textures, layers, and works of art, but these design aspects only garner appreciation when they can be seen. Therefore accent lighting encourages one to focus attention on specific areas that highlight a room’s aesthetic features.
