Varieties of ceiling lights
As essential pieces of your indoor lighting, ceiling lights exist in nearly an infinite diversity of types and shapes to meet all your wishes. Square, round, or rectangular ceiling lights are available for your room; they may hug the traditional lines of design, or break from overly uniform setups. You can also opt for multi-bulb ceiling lights to direct light to specific points you want to highlight, such as a table or reading corner, for example. If you have particularly high ceilings, you may turn towards pendant lights or chandeliers, or even ceiling globe lights that can magnify the volume of your room. In addition to the geometric shapes you will find in our online shop, you can also find ceiling lights in floral designs, in straight, and in curved line designs. Or, in case you are looking for outdoor ceiling lights for your terrace or patio, you will find a large assortment of lights available on our website.
The technical aspects to be taken into account
There are currently three main types of light bulbs: energy-saving bulbs, halogen bulbs, and LEDs (light emitting diodes). LEDs have been improved significantly in the past few years, and what was once a very expensive product a few years ago, is now widespread. This trend should continue because of LEDs extraordinary longevity and their very low energy consumption. They provide tremendous opportunities in terms of design for LED ceiling lights. Since March 2014, every light sold in the EU must be accompanied by an energy label to allow consumers to choose the most cost-effective lighting. Energy efficiency is indicated on a scale ranging from A++ (very efficient) to E (very inefficient).
The IP rating should also be taken into account, in particular for the purchase of a bathroom ceiling light. It is always in the form of a two-digit number; the first indicates the degree of protection against external physical particles, like dust; the second indicates how well the lamp is protected against water. A ceiling light in a bathroom should therefore have at least a minimum rating of IPX4.
