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




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.
