There are a number of ways to properly light up a room with embossed metal ceilings. For example, it is important to consider alternatives to ceiling fixtures, since you don’t want to ruin your metal ceiling. Other considerations include types of lighting, color, and spacing.
Avoiding Ceiling Fixtures
Some – but not all – metal ceilings will require you to think differently about lighting fixtures because ceiling fixtures cannot be installed on some ceilings. As such, standing and table lamps are a great way to keep a room well lit. Additionally, maximizing the natural light in a room is crucial in any space, but this is especially the case in a room where you cannot install ceiling fixtures.
You can get creative with the types of lights you do install, however. For instance, a torchiere is a floor lamp that shines light upward so that the light will bounce off of the ceiling and create an effect similar to that of a ceiling light.
When you have a room with lots of space – as rooms with tin ceilings often provide – mixing and matching lighting colors can be a great boon. For example, layering yellow and white light with bright blue can create a wonderful texture. Lighting color is also a great way to get creative in a room like this one, especially when you play off the colors of the furniture and artwork that you have on display.
Finally, it’s important to consider how you want to space out your lighting. Mixing and matching is always a great way to go with styles of light, colors, and even different kinds of lamps to add a personal flair to any room. When it comes to your tin ceiling, good lighting is also a way to show off its embossed patterns and intricacies.
Many metal ceilings do allow for installing a light fixture from above. As such, a chandelier can be an excellent addition to your home’s interior.
