Light Buying Guide From LITB

Find Your Fixtures:

1. Ceiling fixtures: Ceiling fixtures, such as chandeliers or flush-mount lighting fixtures fill a room with light. Using an additional lamp helps to counteract the harsh shadows cast by ceiling light fixtures. Decorative ceiling light fixtures, such as chandeliers and pendants, make a beautiful and functional addition to any room. Other modern ceiling light fixtures include track lighting and recessed lighting.
2. Table lamps: Table lamps usually range from 25 inches to 34 inches in height and are the most-used general lighting in all homes. Table lamps look best when the base and the shade are in proportion to each other. When you sit, the lampshade should be at eye level and the light bulbs unseen.
3. Accent lamps: Accent lamps are smaller, useful in rooms such as the hallway, bedroom, bathroom or entryway. They are usually less than 20 inches in height and use a smaller bulb. They can create an ambient, luminous glow near bookcases or hobby collections or in an unused corner of a room. Accent lighting under kitchen cabinets or back lighting on the top of kitchen cabinets is currently popular. Also popular is lighting for curio cabinets and picture lighting for artwork.
4. Floor lamps: Floor lamps are often adjustable, using three-way bulbs. Choose torchiere lighting, which sends the light upwards, shade lighting, which focuses the light of the floor lamp out and down, or a floor lamp with a combination of the two.
5. Sconces: Wall-mounted lighting, such as sconces, is a popular way to illuminate porches and hallways. Wall sconces over a sofa set or in a dining room will add to the ambiance of your home. Home lighting creates moods and warmth in home decor, and wall sconces make dramatic focal points in your room. Most wall mounts or wall sconces shed soft lighting and are meant as room accents only. Many must be hard wired into your wall. Professional installation of these wall light fixtures is recommended.
6. Bathroom lighting: Bathroom lighting should be flattering when you look in the mirror. It also needs to provide illumination for tasks like shaving and applying make-up. Combine overhead lighting with sconce lighting or a lighted vanity mirror to get the right combination. Wall-mounted lighting sconces and vanity lighting must be hard wired into your wall.
7. Picture lights: Picture lights make a dramatic difference in the appearance of your wall art and photos. The added light brings out colors and details you might not notice under the regular lighting of a typical room. Most picture lights mount to the frame, and many are cordless. You can find them in a variety of styles and finishes that coordinate with a variety of frames. Typically, you want picture lamps that feature a warm white light. If you go cordless, make sure it is energy efficient, so you won't be replacing batteries too often.
8. Outdoor lighting: Outdoor lighting makes a home safer and accentuates landscaping. Porch fixtures welcome you home and let people know where the front door is. Patio lighting can make the outdoors into a second living room. Garden lanterns can illuminate a path or the area around a pool. Choose from several types of outdoor lighting: landscape lights, utility lighting, safety lights and solar outdoor lights.
9. Tiffany lamps: Tiffany style lamps feature stained glass shades. Any type of lamp -- a floor lamp, table lamp or accent lamp -- can be a Tiffany style lamp. The beautiful stained glass shades are soldered together with copper foil, and they provide you with an array of color and style choices.
Tips from Lightinthebox.com:
You may want to have extra light in places such as the kitchen and workroom, where tasks are performed, and in rooms where the ceiling is over 8 feet high. Dark colors on walls and floors absorb light, so add extra wattage in those rooms.
 
Cleaning a Chandelier
Chandeliers can be the stunning focal point of your room, but these dramatic light fixtures are also great at collecting dust and cobwebs. You can keep your chandelier sparkling by dusting it regularly and cleaning it thoroughly twice a year. To learn how to clean your chandelier using both the wet and dry methods, keep reading.

Cleaning a Chandelier:

Remove the dust. Use a feather duster to quickly remove surface dust before you begin. Since you will be cleaning the light fixture, don't worry about being too thorough.
Prep the area. Preparing the area where you will be cleaning will save time later when you're reassembling your chandelier or letting it dry.

Wet method:

This method is best if your chandelier does not have removable crystals or if you don't have the time to remove each piece by hand. To prep for wet cleaning, lay a tarp on the ground under the light fixture. Cover each light bulb with a plastic bag and secure it with a rubber band or waterproof tape. Make sure not to leave any wiring exposed.

Dry method:

To prep using the dry method, first take a photo of your chandelier to document the placement of each crystal. Then place newspaper on a flat surface and begin removing your crystals. Try to arrange them in the right order on the newspaper to make re-hanging them easier.
Wipe down the fixture and crystals. Take the time to clean each individual crystal for the best results.

Wet method:

Use window cleaner or a spray bottle filled with chandelier cleaner and spray evenly over every part of the chandelier from each angle.

Dry method:

Individually spray each crystal with window cleaner and wipe it dry with a microfiber rag. Then clean the fixture that is still attached to the ceiling with a damp paper towel or cloth.
Let it dry. After you've washed your chandelier, give it some time to air-dry before reassembling it. If you used the wet method, let the cleaner drip onto the tarp and leave the lights off overnight to ensure that the fixture dries completely.
