For example, a halogen bulb should always be housed in an enclosed lighting fixture to avoid the dangerous consequences of a burst halogen bulb. The fixture has to be evaluated on various other parameters, like what type of task it is chosen for, what is the kind of light distribution can be expected from it(given its shades, shape, color, etc.), how does it effect the efficiency of the bulb and what kind of color distribution does it render. Hence, choosing a lighting fixture purely on aesthetic criteria is not a judicious decision.
When you are looking to really make the other decorative accents in the room pop, think about using recessed light fixtures, which will allow the focus to be on the texture of the walls or the art that hangs there. Recessed light fixtures allow for a more gentle ambient glow, while interior lamps and wall sconces should be used as long as they contribute to the prevailing theme. Place them in such a way as to make the light shine down on some particular aspect of your room. This is an excellent way to make sure that you can get your guests` eyes to go where you want them to go.
Accent light fittings basically have three distinct components. The actual fixtures themselves are comprised of the housing, the trim that encircles the exterior of the housing, and the bulb. All these elements are essential to accomplish a recessed light fixture.
While selecting a light fixture, it is important to keep in mind the purpose of the lighting being installed. Fixtures are available in a variety of choices and designs depending upon the place that is to be lit. This includes, bedrooms, bathrooms, bars, halls, playrooms and closets. The main purpose of a light fixture is to facilitate the room`s lighting. Fixtures are used to hold light bulbs, transformers and cables in place.
