- ADVICE & INFO -
Ceiling lighting shines bright on all that you hold dear. They bring illumination to darkness in rooms big and small. Of course you need these kinds of lights at night when the sun goes down and you're still wide awake. But ceiling lights often shine the brightest during the day, when the closest sun from windows is far away. The simple flip of a switch can bring shine to your chandelier or activate the pizazz of your pendant. From semi-flush to flush, recessed to track lighting, follow the glow to your favorite style and brand. You can even look for lighting from your ceiling fan to combine the best of both worlds. There's nothing like a cool breeze under a warm glow.

Types of ceiling lights and their uses
The ceiling of your home has a lot of untapped potential when it comes to incorporating design elements into a space. It is a natural spot to bring in ceiling light fixtures to illuminate your home, and it is a great opportunity to explore lighting options. There is a wide variety of lighting that can happen on the ceiling including chandeliers, pendant lighting, flush/semi flush fixtures, mini pendants, track lighting, and recessed lighting. All of these fixtures are hard wired into your home (with the exception of some plug-in pendants/chandeliers). Hanging fixtures such as mini pendants, chandeliers, and pendants are decorative elements that serve as focal points or as an added accent to a room. Fixtures can be ambient lighting (pendants and chandeliers) or be used for task lighting (mini-pendants). Recessed lighting is installed when you are looking for a minimal visual impact on the surface of the ceiling; and can serve many functions in lighting a space (including ambient light, diffuse light, and task lighting). Track lighting serves similar purposes, but it is mounted on the surface of the ceiling and can be re-positioned along its track as your lighting needs change. Flush and semi-flush have decorative elements but often serve as the main lighting source for a room.

Choosing the right ceiling lighting for your unique style
Because ceiling lights have so many functions, nearly all types of these fixtures will be used across various design styles. It comes down to the decorative elements of a particular fixture and the materials it uses. A modern or contemporary ceiling light will often celebrate the sculptural element of a particular fixture by providing little ornamentation and exposing its form. This is especially successful with metallic surfaces or unusual materials on a fixture. Alternatively, a traditionally styled home will welcome fixtures that have classical design elements, a fair amount of ornamentation, and focus on the fixture as a centerpiece of the overall room. Transitional fixtures will be a blend of each and will often have geometric or simple patterns incorporated into the design.


 

- FAQs -
Q: In what rooms and instances do people choose ceiling lights over other lighting options?

A: Ceiling lights are used in every room and are chosen for functional, task-oriented, and decorative reasons. Most rooms have a single light in the center of the ceiling that is for the day-to-day functions of a space. Other ceiling lighting will be for specific tasks (think recessed cans that shine onto your countertops in the kitchen). Decorative lights are often sculptural in nature, like a chandelier, and can often have the added purpose of being task oriented.
Q: How many ceiling lights should I have per square foot of room?

A: The number of ceiling lights per square foot varies, because it needs to take into account the whole volume of the space, and how far down the light spills from a fixture. You might have ten recessed lights in the ceiling, but if are on too high of a ceiling, the light output of the fixture itself may not reach the floor. You want to find the right number of fixtures based on the light they give off in a space. If you are using canned ceiling lights that are 6 inch in diameter, than the standard rule of thumb is to space them 3-4 feet apart. But again, it all depends on the type of light, the height of the ceiling and the overall lumens required.
Q: What are pendant and mini pendant lights used for specifically?

A: Pendant and mini pendant lights are often considered decorative task lighting. They can bring in added style while also casting light onto a surface. Pendants are considered a focal point of your lighting and mini pendants more accent pieces. Additionally, mini pendants are often hung in multiples to illuminate a long surface such as over a kitchen bar or table.
Q: What is recessed lighting used for specifically?

A: Recessed light has many different uses depending on the type of fixture you purchase, but they are generally either task lighting or used to bath a large space in light. Recessed lighting can be directed towards walls and surfaces to highlight artwork or a tabletop. They can also have different filters or rings placed on them to be diffused, or pinpointed to create a specific cone of light.
