How to Select the Right Light Fixtures for your Home

Selecting the right light for every room of your house will mainly depend on the ambiance you want the room to have and how you plan to use each room.

 

There are numerous types of ceiling lights you can choose from. But the most common are: hanging or pendant lights, recessed lights, flush mount lights, utility light, and chandeliers.

 

Pendant or hanging lights

 

Pendant or hanging lights are ceiling lights that are hanging from the ceiling. This type of ceiling light usually has a metal rod or chain to attach it to the ceiling. Pendant lights come in various stylish designs and are ideal for homes or rooms where you don’t want lights that are too bright.

 

Utility lights

 

This light type is commonly used in rooms where you need bright lights – laundry area, a garage, or even in rooms where you do some activities that will require you to see objects clearly.

 

Recessed lights

 

These are the little lights you can see installed within the surface of the ceiling. Most recessed lights have a soft glow that it is ideal for rooms where you just want to relax. Since these lights are placed within the ceiling, it is best used for spaces with low ceilings.

 

Flush mount lights

 

These lights are directly mounted to the ceiling. Most flush mount lights are not bright enough to illuminate an entire room by itself – but there are much larger versions of flush mount lights if you want its light to occupy at least one room. Just like recessed lights, flush mount lights are perfect for rooms with low ceiling

 

Chandelier

 

Grand, eye-catching, and hanging from the wall, chandeliers are commonly placed in dining rooms or areas where guests are normally entertained or received in your home. There are endless designs of chandeliers but one thing remains the same for all of them – it is undeniable that they were made to be aesthetically pleasing. A chandelier can instantly elevate the beauty and grace of any room.

 

Custom Built Home

Advantages of Choosing a Custom Built Home

Many of us prefer things that are specially made to meet our needs and reflect us as a person – clothes that show our style, bags that can hold all the items we want to bring with us day to day. In short, if given the chance, there are countless people who would want something that is individualistic rather than something that’s mass produced.

 

When it comes to building homes, this remains true. Many people still prefer custom built homes rather than uniform production homes. There are several advantages a homeowner can enjoy if they choose to have a customized home built for them.

 

Individuality is among the best advantages of having a custom home built for you. You can go with the design of your choosing, and, as long as it is possible to be constructed, you can go with almost any design in your mind. In the end, you will have a home that shows your personality, taste, and style – a home that is unique.

 

Together with uniqueness is the freedom to go with a design that will give you everything you need. Production homes are usually set on their designs – two bedroom, one toilet and bath, or the likes. With custom built homes, you can add the number of rooms that you need. If you need bedrooms each with toilet and bath connected – it can be built for you.

 

In building a custom built home, you will have a say in the materials used for the construction of your home. With production homes, there’s a great chance that the contractor or builder will use the standard construction materials they have also used in the previous homes they have built. With custom built home, you can choose the material you want. For example, if you want to have strictly eco-friendly materials used in your home construction, you can have it.
