The kitchen may be the most important room in your house to choose light fixtures for. To light up the main part of the kitchen you might want to consider fluorescent ceiling lights. If you add under cabinet lights and a hanging ceiling light over the table, you will have a nice choice of modern light fixtures in your kitchen. Those who know all about lighting fixtures know that you need lots of lighting in the kitchen. Light fixtures in the dining room usually include a couple of wall fixtures and a hanging light or chandelier over the table.
First of all, always consider the purpose of the lighting. A chandelier would not be hung in the garage because it simply does not fit the purpose of the area. Remember that the light fixtures placed in the room are there to coordinate with the purpose of the space. For entertainment rooms, lights that can be dimmed are an excellent choice; they compliment the purpose of the room, which is usually to entertain guests or to watch television or movies. Dimming light fixtures give the room the feel of a theater and soften the edges in the room, making it more welcoming. However, if you have a living room that is primarily used for reading, track lighting or well-placed lamps are important to relieve stress on the eyes. The purpose of the room and the purpose of the lighting fixture always go hand-in-hand.
Getting tired of that old dingy light fixture hanging up there on your ceiling? Maybe it’s time to get rid of the old and install a new style lighting fixture. Recently a friend of mine bought a new house. She disliked the older seventies style lights installed in all the rooms. So she purchased some new contemporary style lighting for her new home. Gladly I assisted her with installing the new lights. There are several different types of fixtures out there. Incandescent fixtures use filament light bulbs. Fluorescent bulbs work too within these fixtures, you know, the energy saving screw in type. Then there are the strictly Fluorescent type of fixtures. Primarily we will deal with incandescent style fixtures for this article. Fluorescent types are similar, yet a bit more involved. So here we go gang.
Most companies that manufacture indoor lighting fixtures provide a one- year guarantee, along with regular information on the new designs of lighting fixtures available. Indoor lighting fixtures can be installed by referring to the manual provided. However, it is recommended that installation be done under the supervision of a professional.
Ceiling fixtures are designed in a way to provide general lighting to the entire kitchen. Typically, they project down from the ceiling and are usually the biggest lighting piece found in the kitchen. These fixtures can also be hung over a breakfast nook or a kitchen table. There are two types of ceiling fixture; flush-mount ceiling fixture with the glass or diffuser touching the ceiling and semi-flush ceiling fixtures where the bowl projecting from the ceiling such that it hangs a couple of inches away, with indirect light reflecting from the ceiling (think of it like an upside down umbrella).
