When we are decorating a room, we pay attention to the colors, the furniture, the type of floor, the style of the windows, but do we pay attention to the lights? Do we really choose the right lighting?
In this post, we will go over the main types of lighting. We will share with you the different styles of lighting fixtures and their functions, as well as the special places they can be located to create a unique living space.
Lets’ get started…
1. General Lighting (Ambient Lighting) generates light from corner-to-corner and can be found in almost every room of your home. Ceiling-mounted fixtures, pendants , recessed or track lighting, and chandeliers can be classified within this category. Generally speaking it is best to choose a light fixture based on the décor style.
Ceiling-mounted fixtures can be found almost in any room of the house; especially in the bedrooms, foyers and halls.
What does it happen if we have high ceilings? The best recommendation here is to choose pendant fixtures to create a better ambient lighting result. Usually these areas are: foyers, stairways, dining rooms, and sometimes kitchens.

After going through all these types of lighting, we can conclude that lighting a space is not as easy as we thought but that doesn’t mean that is impossible; it just requires attention to the space, to the details and also to the needs of each individual using this space.
