Lighting fixtures also influence the efficiency of bulbs. It is always advisable to go for lighting fixtures with the highest energy efficiency ratings. While shopping for fixtures, one should ask about their efficiency. The efficiency rating of fixtures is published by the manufacturers and is available at the retail shops. An inefficient fixture may absorb huge amounts of light, consequently reducing the amount of light distributed, or radiate the light to various cavities in the ceiling. The light efficiency of the fixtures can be maximized by regularly cleaning the dirt, and cobwebs from the shades and fixtures.
Before getting the cheap antique bath light fixtures installed you should know the right place for its location. Many of the people install the fixtures at incorrect places that become the sole reason for unequal distribution of light to all areas of the bathroom. Many a times it is so wrongly placed that a reflection of it falls on the mirror making it difficult for you to have a clear vision of yourself. It should generally be placed a little higher than you so that your head does not touch the fixtures.
Not only are bathroom lighting fixtures great in function, it are also fantastic in style. Now first things first, before we talk about what types of designs would look great in your bathroom, let’s talk about the placement of these fixtures. A wonderful place to have a fixture would be around your mirror. A bulb or two above the mirror can serve as your general lighting. Add another on both sides and you’ll have the perfect lighting when it comes to wearing make up or just plain admiring your face. Another section that would require bathroom lighting fixtures would be the shower area. Also, if the bathroom is large enough, you can have a fixture installed on the center of the room.
Speaking of bulbs, mini pendants are available with incandescent, halogen and energy saving compact fluorescent lights. Using a dimmer can help you get the most out of whichever bulb you choose. Installing dimmers is easy and you can do it yourself without having to call in an electrician if you’re simply replacing an existing light. You want to start by shutting off the power to the room on the circuit box. Ideally, you want to use a circuit tester to make sure the power is off to the light before touching the wiring. Assuming the power is off, start by removing the old fixture. If you’re replacing a ceiling fan with a pendant, remove the blades first. It makes the process much easier.
It is important to remember that higher quality light fixtures will produce the same light quality as a lower quality light fixture; because the light quality is contained entirely in the light bulb itself and not the fixture. Therefore, when you’re shopping, don’t be fooled by claims that state that their light fixture will produce better light than another, cheaper light fixture. As long as you’re using the same light bulb, the light will be the same.
