Advantages of ceiling lights

Ceiling lights are an interior lighting favourite because they come with a multitude of advantages. Let's look at some of the main benefits of ceiling lights:

  • Ambient lighting. Ceiling lights provide excellent overall room lighting. The position of the light source means it spreads evenly in every direction. Find more lighting ideas to brighten up your space here.
  • Saves space. They don't take up space on a floor or table surface. This makes them ideal for smaller rooms, or those with low ceilings. It means you can maximise the space you have, making it feel less cluttered.
  • Design versatility. The wide range of sizes and designs available suit all interior design styles. You can find a ceiling light to tie in with any aesthetic: from classic and elegant to modern and minimalist.
  • Decorative focal points. Whether in the kitchen, bedroom or living room, you can use them to create a decorative focal point. A striking or elegant design will draw the eye and enhance your interior design.
  • Intensity of light. A number of ceiling lights give you the option to dim or brighten the intensity, giving you more flexibility. When you add a dimmer switch, you can create a different ambience according to the time of day or how you're using the room.
  • Easy to clean and maintain. Pendent lights are easier to clean and maintain than table or standard lamps. They don't accumulate as much dust, and need little maintenance.
  • More durable. Ceiling lights are securely attached to the ceiling. They're much less likely to fall or cause an accident. This makes them a hard-wearing, long-term option.
  • Sensation of higher ceilings. Pendant lights make ceilings feel higher. This space-gaining optical illusion makes them particularly beneficial to spaces with low ceilings.

Base your choice of ceiling lighting for different rooms on different factors. The room dimensions, your décor style and the ceiling height to name a few. Let's look at some ideas:
