Lighting - Home Lighting Fixtures

Brighten your decor with the right home lighting

There probably isn't a room in your house that doesn't have some sort of lighting (the creepy crawlspace under the stairs doesn't count!), yet it is one of the most overlooked features when it comes to designing a home. Far from just picking out the appropriately colored lamp shade, lighting design is the process of deciding what type of lighting is needed in the room and then what fixture is the best means of delivery.

Lighting Types

Interior lighting can be divided into two main categories: task lighting and decorative lighting.

Task lighting tends to be brighter and focuses on a specific spot or surface. The main purpose of a task light is to provide greater illumination over work-intensive areas in order to reduce eye strain. Common places for task lighting include under kitchen cabinets, on an office desk or over a workbench.

Ceiling light fixtures can range from a bare light bulb to an ornate crystal chandelier . The fixture you choose will depend largely on the size and design of your space, but popular forms of ceiling lighting include chandelier lighting, track lighting and recessed lighting.

Wall lighting essentially refers to sconces, though occasionally swing arm lamps can be wall mounted as well. Sconces generally come in pairs and mimic the old-time look of torches or candles in wall mounted holders. Today, the torch or candle is often replaced by a light bulb, but the look remains popular, particularly for antique, rustic and country-themed rooms. Of course, the look has also been adapted to suit many other room styles , so you're sure to find something to suit your decor.

Lamp lighting is generally task lighting, but sometimes (in apar...
