There can be no doubt that lighting is as important to a room as its carpets, curtains and furnishings. The kind of ambience you create in the room comes from the style of lighting you choose. Whilst overhead ceiling lights may not suit everyone’s tastes, they are an essential fixture and should be considered carefully.
The range of ceiling lights available today is immense and interior lighting is certainly big business. You need only visit the lighting department of any large departmental store to confirm this. Whether your taste runs to up-lighters or pendant lights, chandeliers or sleek cones, Danish, Italian, or Chinese lanterns, there is such a vast range of shapes and styles available that choosing the right ceiling lights for your rooms is not easy.
Modern light fixtures tend to be minimalistic to create a dramatic artistic statement. Geometric designs in satin-finished nickel have replaced the shiny chrome of previous decades; while stunning slabs of striking alabaster or dusky smoked glass have replaced the plastic and Perspex of yesteryear.
However, crystal chandeliers are still immensely popular and, when chosen well and in the right room, will always produce the wow factor.
Whether your taste in ceiling lights runs to funky modern or traditional classic, there are designs to satisfy every whim and every pocket. To enhance the ambience of a room, add a touch of dramatic depth or create focus on artistic features, wall lights or lamps can be used in conjunction with ceiling lights to create the desired effect.
