Light in the Window Welcomes You Home
the ways you can add light to your life through the careful selection of a Troy
Lighting ceiling fixture. When conceptualizing a decorating or renovation
project, it’s easy to overlook lighting, but lighting is what makes a house a
home. It’s what you use to read your child a night-time story or to prepare a
culinary feast. It lights up your friends’ smiles as you share laughter and conversation.
It shows off the photographs and souvenirs from that dream trip. Light can even
soothe nerves when watching a scary movie alone at night!
lighting can take several forms, such as chandeliers, pendants, flush and
semi-flush mounts, track lighting, and pot lights. But before you choose your
fixture, consider how that light will be
- Do you need glare-free
light for reading or being on the computer?
- Do you wish the light to
be focused on tasks such as food preparation or grooming?

- Do you have art, books,
or other collected possessions which are to be highlighted? Or are there
imperfections in the room that you wish to conceal, such as a scratch on the
you want the light fixture itself to be a decorative focal point?

installed near a window, do you wish to keep the window view unobstructed?
- Are there floor or table
light fixtures that you wish to keep in the room? You may wish to coordinate
- How large is the room?
Some ceiling fixtures are more suited for smaller spaces, such as closets and
- Does the room get humid?
Not all light fixtures are constructed to work in a bathroom or kitchen due to the steam
created by showering or cooking. Look for a fixture designated as suitable for
damp or wet environments.
- Is there an existing
ceiling fixture that you are replacing? If not, an electrician will be needed
to work on creating a wired connection.
There Be Light
course, the choice also comes down to personal taste and the design style of
your room and home. If you’re not sure what your personal style is, check out a
retailer’s online galleries for inspiration. Remember to take note of a
fixture’s measurements. Flush and semi-flush mount lights have more flexibility
when it comes to ceiling height. Some ceiling fixtures such as chandeliers and
pendants require adequate clearance space, therefore some styles may not work
if you have a ceiling that’s lower than eight feet.

classical shapes to contemporary and modern, the variety is breathtaking, and
