8 Types of Residential Light Fixtures We Install (Part 1)

If you’re looking to upgrade the lighting in your Columbus area home, consider adding specialized lighting like task or accent lights. There are a wide variety of these types of lights that are available in different styles, materials, and colors. The team at Countryside Electric, Inc. has years of experience creating soothing and peaceful rooms with the following residential light fixtures.

8 Types of Residential Light Fixtures

1. Architectural 

There are several types of architectural lighting that can enhance any space in your home. Cove lighting is located on a ledge or recess high on a wall. Soffit lighting is usually installed near the ceiling and streams downward. Valance lighting can be placed high above a window or wall, and radiates both upward and downward. 

2. Recessed

Recessed lighting is exactly what it sounds like. It is built within the recess of a structure, typically the ceiling. Light from these types of structures streams in one direction and is usually installed in the bathroom, kitchen, or office.

3. Track

Track lighting consists of lights that are all connected to the same fixture and are typically arranged in a straight row. The unique part about track lights is that each individual light can be positioned differently. This lighting is used to accent a specific area, and is often used in a place like a garage, craft room, or kitchen.

4. Under-the-Cabinet

Most people view under-the-cabinet lights as being specifically for kitchens only. While they are used primarily in this space, they can also be mounted under cabinets that are located in other areas of your home, such as a laundry room or family room.
