Choosing lighting fixtures is a difficult and important decision. Lighting can set the general mood of the home, it determines how comfortable and functional it is, so you need to give it very careful consideration – here are a few of the most important things to consider before making the investment:
- Consider visual appeal – color, size, shape and style are all essential aspects when you choose your fixtures. Think of your fixtures as decorative elements and choose them in a way that highlights the best parts of your room, that accentuates or dresses down the room. Choose chandeliers for elegant rooms, pendant lights are perfect for smaller spaces or in kitchens, while ceiling-mount fixtures work great in any area. Most importantly have them installed by Denver electricians that are licensed;
- Layer the light – combine fixtures installed on the ceiling with lighting bodies mounted on the walls. Smaller, wall-mounted fixtures are great for highlighting wall art and for creating dimmed light for romantic evenings, while standard lamps provide great, targeted light and so do recessed lights;
- Functionality – make sure that the light fixtures are suitable from a functional point of view as well. Your fixtures should produce light that is sufficiently bright for the room and they must also be of the right size.
