Ceiling Lighting

Posted on May 11, 2014 by Daniel B | 0 comments

Ceiling lighting is probably the easiest kind of lighting to pull off, as many of us have probably reached that point where we’ve changed light bulbs, or took down a lamp because it was malfunctioning. The ceiling is generally the most logical place to install lighting fixtures, especially for direct, functional lighting.

LED lights are currently replacing incandescent light bulbs as a household lighting staple. While the price might make people drag their feet a little, in the long run LED lights are energy savers and help you save on extra electricity costs. Ceiling lights that make use of LED lights also have the option of either using colored LED lights (which are prettier than normal lights) or standard ones. It’s easier to play with ceiling lighting with LED lights.

On the other hand, ceiling lighting does not need to serve a directly functional purpose; it can also offer ambient lighting in the form of recessed lights. Yellow lighting, in particular, is great for ceiling ambient lighting, lending a laid-back, casual sort of air to the room. It also shows certain colors in a better light.

Ceiling lighting can get extremely intricate and artsy, too. Chandeliers come in all forms, from different metal finishes to crystal or diamond accents. The beautiful designs make chandeliers a largely decorative form of lighting, but are also extremely functional as overhead lighting.

Our selections offer a wide selection of ceiling lights that combine both functionality with unique designs and reasonable prices.

Buyer's Guides - Restoration Style Tips
Restoration Style was derived from Charles II after he was restored to the throne of England in 1660. During this period a big richness was noted in English design, architecture and art. Upon his return from the Netherlands and France he and his followers brought with them the latest European styles. 

Take a trip back to 1920's Venice with delicate milk glass sconces in your powder room, or the regal elegance of an embellished Victorian crystal chandelier in your staircase or foyer. Bring a taste of medieval Europe to your dining room with a dramatic round iron chandelier. Most Vintage style collections span throughout time including ceiling lights, pendants, sconces, chandeliers and bathroom fixtures, as well as floor lamps and table lamps.

Consider the Use

Reading lamps need a wider shade to provide plenty of light. 

Consider the Room - What is the color and style of your room? Will the lamp have a starring role or compliment its surroundings?

Consider the Bulb
Be sure you have 2-3 inch separation from bulb to shade, especially for higher wattage bulbs. Be sure the top opening is wide enough to vent the heat. Compact Fluorescent bulbs are great for most lamps because they burn cooler, but you may need larger harp since CFL's are taller than standard light bulbs.
