How to Choose Bedroom Lighting
When it comes to choosing lighting for your bedroom, it can be hard to know where to start. After all, your bedroom is the scene of so many activities, from waking, dressing, and getting ready for your busy day to winding down and resting at the end of it. How do you select versatile and functional lighting for such an important space? Fortunately, it’s possible to address all of your bedroom lighting needs by installing a few different types of lighting.
Start by choosing your overhead lighting. This is your most general-purpose lighting, ideal for the morning as you prepare for work, for the evening as you start to wind down, or for bedroom tasks that require plenty of illumination such as tidying and making the bed. For a dramatic statement you might install a chandelier over the bed. There are seemingly endless bedroom chandelier options to suit a range of interior styles, from modern to traditional and beyond! For a more subtle effect, a flush mount or semi-flush mount light on the ceiling is a great pick as well.

Best Ceiling Fans for Your Kitchen
There are many reasons to put a ceiling fan in the kitchen. For one thing, when the stove gets hot and the dishwasher gets steamy, a ceiling fan provides ventilation to keep you cool and comfortable while you cook and clean. As well, if you select a fan with a light fixture, you get all the breezy benefits of a fan with the added perks of illumination for detailed tasks from slicing veggies to scrubbing the stove. Yet another great reason to install a fan in the kitchen? The right ceiling fan can seriously enhance your kitchen’s decor.
Consider the style of your kitchen before selecting a ceiling fan. If you have a traditional space with details such as inset cabinets, marble countertops, or nickel hardware, look for a fan that complements those touches. When it comes to finishes, choose brass, silver, or brushed metallic casings. Other features such as smoothly curved blades and simple but elegant light shades are all hallmark aspects of fans that suit a traditional kitchen. On the other hand, in a rustic or vintage-inspired kitchen, you may have elements such as butcher block countertops, a farmhouse sink, and glass paneled cabinetry. Ceiling fans with oil-rubbed finishes, woodgrain blades, and scrollwork accents look great in this kind of space.
