Modern ceiling lights have come a long way since the days of the light bulb dangling from a wire but the principles for choosing the correct light fixtures for your home have not changed. These tips are helpful when searching for that perfect ceiling light.
The size of your ceiling lights depends on the height of your ceiling. A high-ceiling parlour may beg for a grand chandelier but a tiny bathroom won’t. Recessed downlights are great for working rooms like the kitchen, where low hanging objects can be a hazard. Hidden recessed lights cast a soft carpet of light around the room, while track-mounted halogens accent that Impressionist painting and bring to life that sculpture from the auction.
For years we’ve been buying lights according to how much energy (the watts) a light uses instead of looking at its brightness (the lumens). Modern lighting comes with an amazing array of light sources, from halogen and fluorescent to the LED. Newer light sources pack more lumens per watt, saving you energy. The correct lumen for a room depends on what the room is used for and who uses it. Older folk need more light due to their weakening eyesight.
The style and colour for ceiling lighting fixtures should match the furnishing and décor of a room. Choosing from a variety of colours, including metal tones, like antique brass, brushed chrome, or even gun metal, we can create that formal or relaxed look, a country or modern art deco look. We like to go online when shopping for ceiling lights. Home décor stores have a mind-boggling array of designs to choose from and the online catalogues, arranged according to type, price, material, colour and even other customers’ rating, can help narrow down quickly what we are looking for, and allow us to compare prices. Sometimes there are special online offers not available at the store. Even if a trip down to the store for a closer look is a must, we save time by skipping the ones that do not have what we want.
