If you are redesigning a whole house or decorating a new
home, lighting is a key element in achieving a professional look and making
your house a home. It may seem like a simple task, but the sheer variety of
lighting options, as well important considerations such as placement, size and
wattage make it a more complicated but still enjoyable undertaking.
For most, the main function of a ceiling light is to provide
general illumination to a room, however, the right choice can enable you to
enjoy a space at its full potential – creating specific moods and ambiances
while serving an important function. Choosing an exquisite crystal chandelier
to hang in an entryway conveys a dramatic and stylish first impression which will
linger long after your guests have left. Opting for an unexpected fixture, such
as a mini chandelier in a bathroom makes a strong style statement and turns a
functional room into an inspirational and sophisticated space. The versatile
pendant light offers decorative flourishes and excels in showcasing smaller
areas such as kitchen islands and dining room tables. However, flush mounts are
an ultra-smart and fashionable option which are available online from prominent
and established lighting companies such as Crystorama Lighting.
Below are some factors to keep in mind when choosing the
right ceiling light.
If your ceiling is lower than 8 feet, a semi-flush fitting
may be perfect. Unlike a pendant light, this fixture is typically suspended by
a mount and drops down slightly to cast light across the surface of the
ceiling. Crystorama’s ‘Solstice’ collection of chandeliers includes a 3-light
semi-flush mount which incorporates a crystal shade in an antique silver cage,
creating a dramatic and ambient effect. Particularly popular in area of high
activity, such as hallways, kitchens and playrooms, semi-flush fixtures hang
from 6 to 21 inches from the ceiling and still allow ample space below.
For ceilings lower than 7 feet, Crystorama’s ‘Astro’ series
includes a flush mount which hugs the ceiling directly and combines Old World
whimsy with astronomical accents. However, these fixtures are available in an
array of metallic finishes – consider the ‘Broche’ series which features
wrought iron leaves in burnished antique gold or English bronze. There is even
a two-tone option within this collection which showcases the mixed metal trend
in an elegant and dramatic manner.
Another important consideration for Canadian customers is
the high custom charges which are often associated with purchasing items from
companies such as the US-based Crystorama. Delivering convenience and
affordability, Canada-based online retailer Click Lighting
custom taxes and offer free shipping on items over $99. Their website features
hundreds of Crystorama’s most popular and high-quality products. Offering
affordable price points and encompassing every style and trend from modern and
industrial to rustic and two-toned, Crystorama ceiling lights are a flexible
option which will suit any décor and budget.
