Wall Light Fixtures.There are different reasons behind the light fixtures in different areas of a house. There are garden lights and those at the porch or the front door. When you choose these lights, you may want to use a wall fixture reachable by hand.
Bathroom Light Fixtures Explained. Light fixtures for bathrooms can be the simple light bulb holder with the pull down chain. Those bathroom light fixtures are the easiest to maintain as the bulb can be changed when burned out without the need of unscrewing glass enclosures. The bulb found in many upscale bathrooms usually in a long row of equal size bulbs are actually screwed into bathroom light fixtures. The fixtures are the brass or copper covers of the live wires that connect the light bulb to the electric circuit.
Pot lights under the cabinets are a popular source of lighting. Many people have them installed or buy kits to do it themselves. It is fairly easy to set up, but for anyone who prefers electrical things to be done for them, you can easily have an electrician come in and set them up. They usually run about a foot apart and hide neatly in place. No wires are seen and the appearance is nice and tidy. At night when the pot lights are turned on, there is enough light from them, to light up most of the space, but most people keep a few extra light fixtures on just to have more lighting.
Too much light is also the mistake that many homeowners make in selecting bulbs for their chandelier light fixtures. More is not always better especially when you are trying to create a certain atmosphere with rustic chandeliers. Rule of thumb is to take the room dimensions (12`x12`= 144 square feet) and multiply this total by 1.5. This will give you the total watts necessary for the space (216 watts). If you have 6 bulbs, select the lower of the bulbs available (30 watt as opposed to 50 watt). You can always add matching wall sconces to make up the difference if needed.
