Choosing the Right Bathroom Ceiling Lights : Fancy a new bathroom but cant stretch to a new bathroom suite - just change the light fittings! Its astounding how much difference something as simple as a new ceiling light can make. And theres such a variety of bathroom ceiling lights on offer that youre bound to find one to fall in love with. The thing to remember about bathroom decor is that functionality is key, and its your choice of lighting that will dictate the practicality of your bathroom -or otherwise. The good thing is that the current crop of lighting designers seems to have cottoned on to this and have managed to combine supreme functionality with stunning good looks. One way to combine functionality with good looks is by choosing a fitting that is adjustable, both in terms of light levels and light direction. You could, of course, also achieve the same result by a clever combination of ceiling lights and wall lights. Light levels are easily managed by the use of dimmer switches. Bear in mind though that all switching will need to be outside of the bathroom in order to conform to European Bathroom Lighting Regulations. Whilst putting in that dimmer switch, it also makes sense to switch your bathroom lighting separately, which will give you greater flexibility in terms of mood setting - something that is now viewed as essential when it comes to illuminating the smallest room. Variable direction of light isnt difficult to achieve either, with many halogen and LED fittings coming on some variation of moveable support. LED light, in particular, is wonderfully directable, which makes it ideal as task lighting. LED ceiling lights installed strategically can be directed at mirrors and other areas, such as vanity units, thus eliminating shadows and providing the perfect illumination for shaving and making up. Style-wise theres an enormous range of ceiling lights designed specifically for bathrooms on the market: from neatly recessed through flush fitting - all the way to chandeliers! Probably the best advice here is to go for one style and stick to it throughout the room. Having said that, a dressy pendant ceiling light in an otherwise minimalist bathroom would certainly give you the wow factor! Dont make the mistake of thinking that ceiling light fittings are old hat. Combine bathroom ceiling lights with wall lights, shower lights and plinth lights and youll find that they will become the lynch-pin of your bathroom lighting scheme. One final word of wisdom: dont scrimp on your home lighting, whether bathroom or other room. Good quality, well installed lighting is actually an investment - and a good looking one at that.
Fabulous Tips For Choosing Ceiling Light Fixtures : of shapes, colors, and sizes, providing you with an array of options. As when making any choices about decor in your home, you should first acquaint yourself with the variety of designs that are available. In the realm of ceiling fixtures, several types exist: Billiard/Island: These decorative ceiling fixtures are ideal for installing over islands (the ones in kitchens, not the land masses) or billiard tables. They can range from more traditional ones, such as Victorian style, to more contemporary models. Chandelier: A chandelier is a type of ceiling fixture that includes at least two arms that provide lights. The fanciness of chandeliers can vary, though the ones we are most familiar with, are those with crystal or glass prisms that create refracted light. Fanlight shades: These attractive ceiling fixtures include a single shade or multiple shades that open up like a fan--either upwards, or downwards. Flush mount: As their name suggests, these lovely ceiling fixtures are installed flush with the ceiling. Inverted: This type of fixture literally appears to be flipped upside down. Pendant: The Pendant ceiling light fixture features a design that is etched on the exterior of the fixture. This design can include just about anything, ranging from pine cones to flying ducks. The Pendant fixture is very popular in kitchens, and you can easily install it above tables and counters. By shining white or colored; or bright or dimmed light throughout the room, you can set the mood for a variety of dining occasions in the kitchen.
Ceiling Light Fixtures: Types and Uses : Ever since the caveman decided to hold a lit tree branch above his head, people have known that overhead lighting is the most effective source of ambient/general illumination. In nearly every home, ceiling light fixtures are a staple; they have evolved over the years to suit a wide variety of room lighting purposes. Here, weve listed the most common types of ceiling light fixtures, and their best uses.
Ceiling Light Fixtures: Types and Uses : • Semi-Flush Mounts: Extending below the ceiling, semi-flush lights provide a more widespread illumination than flush mounts because light is able to escape through the bottom and the top of the globe. They tend to be a little pricier than the former, but are often available in elegant designs that rival the formality of a chandelier (and make quite a statement). Consider using semi-flush lights for spaces that are too small for a fancy chandelier, but still require that special decorative touch (like hallways or small home entryways). • Track Lighting. One of the most practical ceiling light fixtures, track lighting is technically a type of semi-flush with multiple, adjustable heads. Track lighting is an ideal choice for large spaces like the kitchen or living room (especially modern surroundings), letting you position the light to shine where you need it the most. • Ceiling Fans. More and more homeowners are replacing basic ceiling lights with ceiling fans for enhanced home value and comfort. Most ceiling fans today have the option to add a light kit, making them extremely practical for almost any room.
