What SUX in light fixtures? Oversized “statement” pieces.
Chandeliers used to be limited to ballrooms, mansions and doomed opera houses, but the “statement light fixture” has become the blazing hot thing to hang from the ceiling in your dining room, kitchen, living room or even bathroom or bedroom.
When carefully chosen and installed the right pendant lamp or chandelier can elevate a room, but too often they force people to either awkwardly stare upward or bob and weave to avoid crashing into them. These two extremes also tend to leave the space either underlit or overlit.
Dimmable recessed LED lighting!
It can be a rather pricey upgrade, but this approach is the easiest way to keep illumination consistent throughout a room and avoid creating bright and dark spaces.
Since the hardware is hidden above the ceiling, it doesn’t distract from the furniture, the décor and the people you’re supposed to be interacting with. Using a dimmer switch for precise control is essential for setting the mood and conserving energy use.
