Why choose a ceiling light for lighting?
By definition, a ceiling light is a light fixture directly attached to the ceiling. Unlike a pendant light such as chandeliers, the ceiling light is not suspended and does not include accessories or ornamental elements. It has the advantage of being less bulky than suspension luminaires, and of offering real space saving. The ceiling light is therefore more suitable for small spaces or rooms with a low ceiling. The fact that it is recessed directly into the ceiling allows the ceiling light to cover a larger surface and to diffuse the light evenly throughout the room. A ceiling lamp provides elegant lighting for every room in the house. It can go alone for general lighting or in accumulation with other spotlights for more targeted and decorative lighting.
What are the different types of ceiling light?
Before choosing a ceiling light, you must first determine the type of lighting associated with it. There are two main types of lighting:
- Incandescent lighting: it is especially recommended for passage rooms such as hallways and bathrooms, as it provides instant lighting
- Halogen lighting: it provides general light and is better suited to living rooms such as the living room, kitchen or bedroom
In terms of design, ceiling lights are so varied today that there are some for all styles of interior decoration. You will have the choice between:
- Metal ceiling lights
- Glass ceiling lights
- The spotlights
- Cluster design ceiling lights
- Flat and recessed ceiling lights
- Semi-flush ceiling lights
- The candlesticks…
