Lighting Tips From the Pros
From dim to dazzling, lighting transforms any space. Beyond illumination, lighting can instantly change the look and
style of a room from traditional to contemporary and everything in between. When selecting options for your next light
fixture, consider these lighting tips from the product experts at Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery.
Shapes – Round vs. Rectangular
How to choose? Hint: Start with the existing furniture, textures
and colors in the room. Is the furniture contemporary with
straight lines or geometric patterns? Complement with a
rectangular fixture. Does the room contain multi-pillow seating,
large areas of lush carpet or floral motif wallpaper? A round orb
fixture will blend all elements together. Still can’t decide? Select a
fixture that artfully pairs the shapes together in a singular design.
Respect the Bulb
When the light source is exposed, showcase the intricate
hand-made filaments of antique vintage bulbs. The choice
between tubular or traditional A-shape bulbs will completely
transform the look of the fixture. LED options provide additional
brightness and performance with a fraction of the heat output
and energy cost.
When selecting your next lighting fixture, use the tips the pros know to create a
space that is functional, well lit and beautifully illuminates your style.
