A chandelier is an elegant decorative lighting fixture, a single curved frame of light or bulbs suspended on a ceiling or other wall of a room.

Bathroom Vanity Lights
Bathroom vanities are decorative fixtures that are placed in bathrooms to brighten them up. A well-chosen bathroom vanity light can an interesting, decorative piece of your bathroom design. This type of lighting fixture is used to add style and class to the area and can be used to create the illusion of a larger space.
There are many different types of bathroom vanity lights to choose from. The most common option is the ceiling-mounted fixture, which usually sits atop the mirror. This vanity lamp is often made of iron and gives the impression that there’s a larger space available in the room than there really is. You can also choose an under-cabinet-mounted vanity for tiny bathrooms, and wall-mounted vanity for larger spaces. You can find these lamps in styles such as French, Victorian, or contemporary.
A pendant light, sometimes also referred to as drop or suspension light, is a single light fixture that hangs from the ceiling, typically suspended from a wire, cord, or chain link. Pendant lighting is commonly used in multiple, either hung in a parallel line over a table top or on the countertop, and, sometimes, even in bathrooms. The main purpose of this type of lighting is to provide ambient light during the daytime. This is often done by using pendants placed high up on the wall to provide lighting over large areas.
Pendants are generally hung vertically so they can provide a full natural light for your kitchen or dining room. When purchasing pendant lights, you should remember that there are many styles to choose from. If you’re looking for a traditional look, try using pendants with metal fittings. If you’re looking for something a bit different, try adding colored pendant. If you wish for a more dramatic look, you can opt for pendants with differently colored bulbs.
A classic Victorian style of lighting is an option that’s often preferred when it comes to pendant lighting. Some of the other popular pendant lighting styles include antique, contemporary, tropical, modern, and wood-framed pendant. Remember, pendant lighting is versatile enough to be used in just about any type of room, from a small bathroom to a sprawling garden.
A sconce light is a very old form of lighting fixture that’s most often fixed onto the wall. The light is usually, but not always, angled up and out, not downward. There are many different types of sconces, some being more expensive than others. The traditional sconce is one that has three parts: the base, the legs, and the light itself. These are all part of an Art Deco design that has evolved through the years. The style is still popular today.
An antique sconce is a unique and different type of light fixture. This style is typically a one-off piece that you purchase from a shop that sells furniture or lighting fixtures. Antique sconces are often very ornate and beautiful, and may come in metal casings. They have a large mirror, usually one with a gold tone and wrapped around the outside of the casing. These are often used to provide a dramatic effect and give a lovely touch to an otherwise plain room.
The truth is that what’s most important is choosing lighting fixtures according to each of your room’s design elements and functions. Mixing two up to four finishes, coordinating an open floor plan’s overall feel, choosing a focal point, and layering are all good ideas when it comes to mix and matching lighting fixtures. Keep in mind, however, that choosing a lighting fixture only because it looks great is never a good idea. You have to ensure that the one you’re picking serves the purpose of the room.
