The ceiling light in the hallway, the ceiling light in the living room or the ceiling light in the bathroom: for us, these are everyday sights that we quickly take for granted. As long as the lighting does its job and looks good to us, we don't worry about it. However, this changes quickly if we need a new wall or ceiling light for the bedroom or one of the other places, for example. Suddenly a whole series of questions arise before you buy. The sections below will help you find the answers that are right for you.
When it comes to materials, there are no limits to the designer's imagination. Metal, glass, wood, plastic and textile are used in a variety of models. Mixtures of materials are the norm for wall and ceiling lamps and not the exception.
Ceiling lights have the task of lighting the floor. They also indirectly take over the lighting of the room, since the light passes through them on the way to the floor. Wherever this is required, the corresponding solutions are used. Lighting can be space-filling or just selective. Lights can have multiple bulbs or just a single one.
The number of technical features has increased significantly thanks to the smart home. Many lights can now be controlled via smartphone. The colour of the light can also be adjusted. This can be chosen to suit your mood, for example. You can also set whether the lights should switch on or off automatically at a certain time.
In order to buy the right wall or ceiling light, you must first clarify in which room it will be used. Then you must determine whether it should only work selectively or fill the room. The shape and design should be decided by your taste. Your requirements and budget are decisive for the features. Long-lasting LED lights are now the standard solution for light bulbs.
