Different Places To Place Light Fixtures In Your House

Are you thinking about buying some new light fixtures but do not know which ones to pick or where to put them? If so, then you might want to take a look at the following article because today we are going to be talking about the different places that certain light fixtures should normally go.

The first place that you will commonly find light fixtures is the ceiling. There are a lot of different types of lights that go in the ceiling but for the most part you will see chandeliers , florescent lights, fan lights and pendant lights. Of course you can try and put other lights up there as well but these are the ones that are the most fashionable and easiest to install. These types of lights are great at lighting up whole rooms. If these types of lights are not what you are looking for then there are other types of lights such as track lights and recessed can lights that might better suit your needs.

The next most common place to put light fixtures is on the floor. There are many different types of lamps but they all pretty much fall under the category of floor lamp. This is not to say that all of these lamps look the same though, as they can be short, tall, skinny or have 10 light fixtures on them. These types of lamps go great for accent lighting or just lighting up one area and not a whole room.

The last place that we are going to be talking about today is the wall. Sconces are the number one light fixture to be placed on walls. The reason for this is because all of the wiring for the sconce is in the wall. Another reason that they are so popular is because they can be indoor or outdoor light fixtures. An example of this would be the copper outdoor sconce which usually would be placed in path ways, walk ways, or entry ways.
