Ceiling lights are the most conspicuous among other types of lights. Lights that fall under this category are used in almost all parts of the house, may it be the living room, kitchen, dining area, bedroom, bathroom, garage or basement.
Determining what kind of light or lights to use in an area of your home requires a lot of consideration. Of course, first thing you consider is the size of the room or area. A traditional sized chandelier will look out of the way if placed in a small living room. On the other hand, placing a small chandelier in a huge living room will probably be useless since it will not be enough to light the room, plus it probably wouldn’t even be noticed because of the size.
