Regardless, any of these options can add value and give a space just what it needs to be unique and beautiful. Especially when they’re high-quality and mounted correctly. Here’s what one needs to know before investing in new ceiling mounted lighting.
Flush Ceiling Mounted Lighting
Flush ceiling mounted lighting is available in a variety of styles and sizes. Even in a small size room, such as a bedroom it’s possible to find a stunning light that ties in with the existing décor. When working with a flush mounted light there are two types; close flush-mounted and semi-flush mounted. The close version is placed right onto the ceiling while the semi-mount sits below the ceiling. There are actually several inches between the fixture and the ceiling.
If the ceiling is lower, it’s best to invest in flush ceiling mounted lighting. A low ceiling is considered to be anything 8 feet high or lower. Common places for these lights are bathrooms, closets and kitchens.
If your ceiling is higher than 10 feet, you may want to consider a hanging light. Hanging lights such as chandeliers and pendants are the best choice and a simple design is recommended. They come with a cord or chain for hanging and come in many styles and sizes as well. Pendants are more simple, while chandeliers tend to be very heavy and showy.
Lighting for the Bedroom
There are all types of ceiling mounted lighting, as anyone can see. But which are best for the bedroom? Hanging lights are easily placed over a bed, but should be hung at a height that allows for headroom or they’ll just be annoying. They are also perfect to hang on either side of the bed for reading purposes, and look wonderful over night stands.
It’s important that when one is choosing lighting for the bedroom that they keep the design elements at the forefront of their choices. Hanging ceiling mounted lighting right in the center of the bedroom is not always the best choice. A smart decision is to hang the light centered above the most interesting focal point of the room; it could be a sitting area or vanity, but in most cases it will be the bed.
Recessed Lighting – A Popular Choice
When working with recessed lights only a few strategically placed fixtures are necessary. While recessed lighting is a very popular pick for homeowners who want to keep their spaces open and bright, if the lighting is overdone with both recessed lights and lamps, and pendant lights among other types, the room will end up looking cluttered. This goes for bedrooms or any room where lighting is needed. Another mistake many homeowners make is installing too much ceiling mounted lighting, and as a result the room looks like a runway. Work with professionals or do online searches to see how lighting is placed by experts.
There are also fixtures that feature dimming elements, and ceiling fans, the options are endless. Regardless of which style of bedroom ceiling light is chosen by the homeowner, as long as the right amount of light is achieved and the fixture provides it easily, the results will be spectacular in any room of the home.
