When you want to add style and character to your home, installing new light fixtures is a practical and economical option. By simply changing out a wall sconce, adding pendant lights over your kitchen island, or updating an outdated chandelier, you can change the look of your whole house. The experts at Countryside Electric, Inc. have the skill and ability to install any type of lighting for your Columbus area home, including the four types of lighting listed below.
Pendants are lighting fixtures that are suspended from the ceiling and direct their light straight down. Typically, these lights are hung over a table or kitchen island. They can add to and improve the character of any room, as they come in a variety of lengths, colors, and styles.
Similar to pendant lights, chandeliers are also suspended from the ceiling, but rather than directing light down, they direct their light upward. Chandeliers come in a wide range of materials, lights, colors, and styles. They provide lighting over dining room tables or in wide, large entryways, and they can provide soft ambient lighting as well.
7. Ceiling Lights
Ceiling lights are fixed directly on the ceiling and covered with either a glass or plastic shade. They can be very simple and practical, or they can be uniquely ornate. They are the most common type of light fixtures in most homes.
8. Wall Sconces
Mounted directly on the wall, wall sconces are built to either direct light upwards or downwards, depending on what you’re looking for in lighting. With wall sconces, you can dress them up or down, using a variety of covers and shades. Typically, wall sconces are installed in hallways to add ambient lighting, and are especially useful at night.
