5 Most Popular Types of Lighting Fixtures

From elegant chandeliers to simple modern pieces, lighting has evolved from being a way to brighten a dark space to becoming a decorative statement for the home. Whether redecorating or building a brand-new house, making the proper lighting choices will add function, personality and a special flair to any room.

5 Most Popular Lighting Fixtures:

1. Hanging Ceiling Lights

Hanging ceiling lights are called chandeliers or pendants. Traditional chandeliers can be elaborate in design, chain hung and have arms (such as a crystal chandelier) where modern chandeliers and pendants may have a cleaner silhouette and are hung from single rods, wires or chains.

Mounted ceiling lights are called flush mount, semi-flush mount or recessed lights. These types of lighting fixtures are an excellent source of ambient lighting and perfect for areas of the home that see a lot of activity such as kitchens, foyers and living rooms.
