What kind of home ceiling lighting to choose and what to follow? What can it consist of and finally – how to compose ceiling lighting for individual rooms?
Here are some important issues to consider when planning solutions for your own home
Elements of ceiling lighting – you need to know them
Ceiling lighting must be chosen according to the type of room and its size. Especially in small spaces, it may be that only one type of lighting can do the job well. In larger rooms, combinations of different types of lighting are most often used. What options do we have to choose from?
Ceiling lamp or chandelier
Traditionally, the primary type of ceiling lighting may be a stately chandelier or a slightly less festive ceiling lamp, which, however, can be extremely atmospheric in some styles. This type of lighting is the primary source of light and is intended to illuminate the room evenly
Large chandeliers, for example, decorated with glass or crystal elements, work well not only in interiors inspired by historical styles, but also in modern glamour styles
What about ceiling lamps? Here the variety is much greater. Our choice can be industrial, modern or even minimalist lamps. The number of lighting points is chosen according to the size of the illuminated surface. It is important that the lamp harmonizes with the interior design.
It is very useful when you need to enhance the effect of the ceiling lamp. Spot lighting in the ceiling can also be used to emphasize the values of some architectural elements – for example a decorative brick or stone wall. Due to its energy efficiency, LED spotlight will be especially good solution.
Use of plafonds can be useful in both modern and traditional interiors. Although they often go out of fashion, their advantages are appreciated in low rooms or under slants. The point is that the source of light is very close to the ceiling, which does not take up valuable space.
Halogen ceiling lights
Halogen lighting has a directional character. Thanks to it we can also illuminate, for example, the opposite wall or a painting or mosaic located on it. LED spotlights are also useful here.
Ceiling lights for different rooms
Lighting for the bedroom
The ceiling lamp should create the effect of light diffusion. Its stream can not be too strong due to the nature of the room, which is used for sleep and rest. An interesting addition will be LED strips or fiber optics in the ceiling, whose task will be to create an imitation of a starry sky.
