Types of Lighting Fixtures

Light fixtures come in many different shapes, sizes, colors and fittings.  There are a lot of options to choose from, and that can be a little confusing to the average home owner. Understanding what each type of fixture is may help you decide what your room needs and what will work for your space.

Today we’ll talk about 3 common light fixtures – Recessed Lights, Track Lighting and Pendants

Recessed Lights
 
Recessed lights are installed above the ceiling. They have an opening that is flush with the ceiling. Installing recessed lights requires at least 6 inches of clearance above the ceiling (where the cans are set in). This type of lighting is great for ambient, task or accent lighting.Screen Shot 2015-04-03 at 2.06.07 PM

Track Lighting

This type of lighting can be mounted or suspended from the ceiling and is typically used as accent lighting. The lights are attached to a “track” and typically be positioned in many different angles and directions. This adjustable lighting fixture is a great option for rooms with artwork.

Pendants

Pendants are suspended from the ceiling. Most pendants direct light downwards. This type of lighting is typically used over kitchen tables or over a kitchen bar.
