When it comes to your home’s lighting, there are probably things that you like and things that you don’t like. For example, you may love the floor and table lamps in your living room, but you’re not crazy about the ceiling fixture in the middle of the room. At The House of Lights & Home Accents in Melbourne, we understand the frustration that can come with not being happy with your lighting. It might be a design problem, or there could be an issue with a light’s functionality, but whatever the case may be, we can help you find the right solutions.
If you’re not happy with the lights on your ceilings, then we can provide new ambient lighting solutions that you’ll enjoy for years to come. Ambient lighting refers to the general illumination that usually comes from your central fixtures, such as a chandelier or a ceiling fan with a light kit. Two issues that can often arise with your ambient fixtures is that they don’t match the rest of your fixtures, or they don’t provide enough light for the space in which they’re located.
Ambient Fixture Doesn’t Match
One major issue that many homeowners have with their ambient light fixtures is that they don’t match the rest of the lighting in the room. This often happens when you buy new lamps and other accent lighting that are a certain style, but they don’t mesh with the ceiling fixture. You really like the lamp style, and figure you can live with the old ambient light for a while. However, after living with it for a few months, all you can think about is how outdated the ceiling light is and how you should replace it with a new fixture.
When this happens, it’s important to consider what fixture will be the best option. If you currently have a semi-flush mount light, then perhaps a new ceiling fan would be a good replacement. If you have an old chandelier or hanging fixture, then maybe a new, bigger chandelier is the way to go.
Ambient Fixture Doesn’t Provide Enough Light
Another issue that can cause headaches for homeowners is an ambient fixture that doesn’t provide enough light. Ambient lights should provide enough illumination for a space so that you can turn on that fixture alone and have plenty of light by which to see. If the fixture is too small for the space, or you’ve rearranged the room to be more open, then your old light might not be bright enough to illuminate the area properly.
A solution for this can often be to add a larger and brighter light fixture. An old fixture that was installed in the 1980s can be replaced with a new, larger fixture that uses LED light bulbs. You can also install an additional fixture that spreads light to another part of the room. This is especially beneficial in big areas like your living room or long spaces like your front hallway.
