Ceiling lighting uses different light fixtures in order to give illumination to a building or structure. These light fixtures vary mainly in style, color, shape and size. These fixtures are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Ceiling lighting fixtures can be divided into two main categories namely, flush mounts and semi-flush mounts. For ceiling lighting using flush mounts, they are characterized as fixtures that have no gap or almost have no space between the light fixture and of the ceiling. While semi-flush mounts use fixtures that are attached with parts or stems, creating a space is necessary between it and the ceiling.
There are numerous designs to choose from when it comes to ceiling lighting fixtures. Traditional, contemporary, and modern lighting fixtures are some of the more general types. Art-deco, Victorian and ultra modern styled lighting fixtures are some of the more specific types.
Aside from having different designs, ceiling lighting fixtures can also be differentiated through their uses. Some of these fixtures are used for focusing directly to a work area or can also be used as diffused lighting, like for instance, ceiling lightings on greenhouses and photo studios.
The more specialized type of ceiling lighting are ceiling fan lights, chandeliers and recessed lights. Ceiling fan lights are suitable for places that have a warm or hot climate.
Chandeliers are the more fancier and decorative type of ceiling lighting, since it has intricate designs and uses expensive materials. For recessed lights, they are mainly used as accents in interior spaces and at outdoor spaces as well. Using this type of ceiling lighting can have a dramatic effect. The intensity of the illumination can also be adjusted.
Choosing the right ceiling lighting can be both rewarding and exciting, but at the same time, can be frustrating and daunting. But by using the right type of lighting for a particular area, everything will follow through. Style, color or size that you may choose, may also greatly affect the functionality of the ceiling lighting.
