It’s true, lighting can be tricky! There are many different aspects to selecting the right fixture for your ceiling and hanging it correctly. For instance, if the fixture is hung too high then it will get lost – as will your lighting. Hung too low, light will be the only thing you see – your fixture will block faces and conversation and cause unwanted glair.
There is a right way to hang a ceiling light to make sure you are maxing out on functional light while offering the right amount of mood lighting. Above all, you want your ceiling light to be functional but also add another element of style to a room. Before a light fixture is chosen to be the star of the show, the right size and placement must be taken into account. These are the tried and true measurements in the design world that will guide you to the perfectly placed ceiling light.
