Wall & Ceiling Lighting

Buy affordable, beautiful, high-quality ceiling lights

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.

What types of wall and ceiling lights are there?

  • Modern ceiling light: It is a design style that relies on clear shapes and patterns. Metal and plastics are often used. We'll talk more about "modern" in a technical sense in the features section.
  • Classic ceiling light: This is the counterpart to the modern solution. These lights are visually reminiscent of design concepts from the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. Many variants are mounted directly under the ceiling. However, there are also modern chandeliers of this type.
  • Hanging lamps or pendant lights: These are attached to a cable or a rope. As a rule, they are only intended to illuminate part of a room and are therefore often used above the dining table, for example.
  • Spotlights: These create selective lighting and often do without an artistically designed frame, but instead rely on puristic simplicity.

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.

Features and areas of application: Where are wall and ceiling lights used?

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.

Buying the right wall and ceiling lighting: This is what you need to look out for when making your selection

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.


How is a ceiling light different from a ceiling lamp?

The two terms are often used interchangeably, but strictly speaking they are not the same. The light is everything: bulb, socket, housing, etc.; on the other hand, the lamp is really just the bulb.

How are ceiling lights connected?

First the neutral conductors are connected, then the so-called phases (the small cables). The identical colours should meet. If the same colours are not used, the brightness is decisive: The lighter and darker phases belong together.

Why do wall and ceiling lights sometimes flicker?

Flicker is caused by the power being processed in the bulb changing rapidly. This can mean that the bulb has reached the end of its life. There may also be a problem with the phases. Defective switches, loose contacts and electrical interference can also be decisive.
