How to Embrace Proper Ceiling Lights for your rooms

By Hannah Wagner Subscribe to RSS | January 16th 2012 | Views:

Many home owners do have an idea about choosing the right light fixtures for their home. They are not sure about the size, finishes or the models. In order to get the best out of your lighting, here are some simple tips for choosing the lights to light up your rooms. While buying the lights ensure that you concentrate on one room at a time. This will help you to find good lighting for all the rooms in your home.

Things to consider

If the ceiling of the room is more than 8 ft high, then you can use a chain suspension for hanging the light. Most of the showrooms give you the lights and the chain according to the height of the ceiling. If the ceiling is lower than 8 ft, a semi flush fitting is ideal. There is no chain used for this type of lights. The lights are usually suspended by means of some ceiling mounts or rods. When the height of the ceiling is 6-7 ft or lower, a flush light is the best choice. Many home owners do not prefer flush lights for the ceiling because of the decorative aspect. They need something more decorative and attractive for the living room. These days, there are a wide variety of decorative light fixtures to suit any kind of home decor.

Style of the ceiling lights

Whatever is the style of your home, traditional, contemporary or modern, you have to choose the ceiling lights accordingly. Some homes even have the rustic farmhouse style. Never go by the trends and fashion unless your home has a modern decor. If you have a traditional design and choose the latest modern designs of ceiling lights, they may never go with each other. So, try to choose a style that blends well with the atmosphere, furniture and furnishings in the room.


The ceiling lights and table lamps come in various finishes. While choosing these lights, remember to match them to the items already available in the rooms such as the switches, door handles, curtain rods, fire surround, sockets etc. Sometimes, you may be beginning from scratch. At this point, consider the home decor you are going to use and buy the lights accordingly. The lights come in various finishes such as chrome, brass, satin brass and satin silver etc.


The lighting of the room is very important because it has to serve a lot of purposes. Apart from lighting, it has to be decorative and visually appealing. Avoid using too many ceiling lights and table lamps. Use them only wherever required. By overusing, you are only meddling with the proportion of lighting in the room. Decide how much light you want and use the lights accordingly.
