Tips for Choosing a Light Fixture
1. Consider your ceiling heights. The bottom of the fixture should be no lower than 7′ from the floor. If you have 8′ ceilings look at flush mounts and 9’+ ceilings can often accommodate a semi-flush mount.2. Lighting should coordinate throughout the home, but doesn’t need to the same. In other words, stay in a similar design style such as mid-century modern, traditional, contemporary, etc. without putting the same fixture or collection everywhere. Mix finishes, open/closed shades, and shapes.3. Add personality with your lighting by incorporating your design style.
