Would someone consider placing fluorescent lighting in a bedroom that was supposed to be relaxing? The answer to this question would probably be no. Ceiling lighting can help to determine the mood of a room. Softer lighting is usually used in bedrooms and living room areas. Stark fluorescent lighting would not be relaxing while attempting to get ready for bed in the evening. Every area of a home has its own personality and charm, and the lighting should match the decor and design of the room. A traditional home would require a completely different lighting scheme than a contemporary home. Merging two very different lighting styles can leave a room with a less than appealing appearance.
The ceiling height and space in a room will also determine the lighting style. Vaulted ceilings can entertain a large Chandeliers. Ceilings that are higher than a standard eight foot ceiling can encompass a pendant or larger light as well. Lower ceilings would need more consideration of flush mount lighting to light a room. Depending on the size of a room, recessed lighting is a great option so the focal point isn't a very large and bright light in a room while the corners are dark. Inexpensive fixtures are just that, inexpensive. They will not light up a room and add charm like high end lighting will.
A great example of lights than some individuals use are the cheap rope lights that are made of plastic or rubber. Some individuals use this type of lighting to brighten a room or for the top of kitchen cabinets. These types of lights turn yellow and crack over time. Proper ceiling lights can eliminate this problem. A mixture of recess lights and pendant lights can brighten a room much better and more eloquently than some cheap rubber tubed lighting. Bathrooms are another room that careful planning for light choices need to be made. Entering a dark tub or shower can create a safety concern. Using a mirror without proper lighting to apply make-up could be a disaster.
Ceiling lighting can be chosen with a variety of finishes. An owner can choose a shiny chrome fixture for a modern house or bronze tones for a traditional home. Coming home to a house at night that has better lighting can leave the occupants feeling safe when there's no dark spots they can't see into. When choosing lighting, choose high quality fixtures that match both the style of the home and the taste of the homeowner from Kichler lighting.
