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.
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.
While selecting ceiling light fixtures people may choose decorative fixtures. This adds to the beauty of the place along with providing adequate lighting. Nowadays, it is possible to purchase a wide variety of light fittings that coordinate with the color of the walls. Light fixtures can be used for floor lamps, ceiling lighting, wall lighting and other ornamental lighting to create a striking visual effect for houses, offices and guestrooms.
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.
