FAQ About Ceiling Lamps

A well-lit home is a happy home. Ceiling lamps are among the most effective means of stylishly filling your space with lots of warm, loving light. Use the following tips to illuminate your redecoration.

Why do I need a ceiling lamp instead of another lighting option?

Ceiling lamps offer a number of advantages over floor and table lamps. They provide ambient lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting all without cluttering tables or occupying floor space. They're wired directly into your home's electrical system so they're turned on and off with the flick of a switch, or the turn of a dimmer wheel, so you don't have to go around the room turning on each light individually. They can also be installed in almost any room of your house, with a range of types and styles to fit any space or function.

What types of ceiling lamps are available?

From simple and understated recessed fixtures and fluorescent lighting bars, to the bold and the flashy chandeliers and pendant lights, to multifunctional ceiling fans with lights, your hunt for ceiling lamps certainly won't be restricted by choice. What you choose should depend first and foremost on room considerations. Pendant ceiling lamps and track lighting, for instance, are best for task lighting, such as in a kitchen. Chandelier-style ceiling lamps and flush mount ceiling lamps, create excellent ambient light for filling out large rooms. Recessed ceiling lamps, meanwhile, are best for subtle accent lighting.

What ceiling lamp styles should I consider?

The styles available in ceiling lighting are nearly endless. More and more, ceiling lamps are doubling as works of home décor and art, as opposed to purely functional sources of light. The best part is that ceiling lamps are the new black -- they go with everything. Do you have a simple, modern, and minimalist aesthetic in your home? Add a splash of surprising boldness with an exuberant ceiling lamp that will catch the eye as well as illuminate your space's chic openness. Mix and match your styles to rejuvenate a room with the flick of a switch.
