Lighting is creating an atmosphere, and a visual and functional necessity and setting a mood or just highlighting an object or area. There are ceiling lights, table lights, accent lights, chandeliers, track lights or sconces and fancy, decorative, artsy, affordable, expensive and very expensive light sources.
Of course each category is about decor, size, material and a fit within your living space.
Choosing a source of light is a challenge.
Naturally, you have to be aware and plan to consult a certified electrician because you want to be sure all is installed correctly and within your local code. Table lamps just need to be plugged in to any outlet. You may want a dimmer to brighten or dim the light effect of the area you want to highlight and shine upon on, you may also just want to clap your hands to activate or deactivate the function of your light fixture. Just ask your electrician and see what is the best and latest technology that suits you best and find out the many ways interior lights can work now a days.
The toughest task is to select and hang a chandelier. You may decide to have one over a Cocktail table, dining table, in a hallway or bathroom. This is when you want to be sure to select just the perfect size and hang it at just the right hight.
Above the dining table you want to be sure it hangs centering the table with its base not too low above the table to obstruct the view of your guests when everyone is seated to allow eye contact and conversation. You also want the right overall size and amount of arms in proportion to your table and general area. Of course yours or your decorators skills are needed to decide the materials, colors, shades or no shades, bright light bulbs, frosted or clear.
Most chandeliers are adorned with crystal drops or beaded strings, some more elaborate, some understated, some in colors but most are just clear crystals. Of course the styles vary widely from traditional, contemporary, Art Deco, provincial, modern and on and on.
