Excellent light fixtures for low ceilings


(CYNTHIA MUGI) Overhead lighting can be tricky if your ceiling is low. When on the hunt for light fixtures you will often find large chandeliers that hang several feet.  With a low ceiling, this means that you will hit your head on the light fixture every time you walk past.  Light fixtures for low ceilings need to be close to the ceiling itself and should be able to carry your sense of style.  In order to ensure that light fixture accidents do not happen, it is advisable to ensure that the fixture does not hang lower than 6 feet 8 inches off the floor.

In order to have a light fixture that is both dramatic and eye catching you will need a low profile fixture that is large in diameter.  This will create the ceiling drama necessary without the risk of bumping your head.  The diameter of the light fixture should be determined by the size of the room.  The larger the room, the greater the diameter of the light fixture you choose. Another way to create eye catching ceilings and lighting is to use wall paper on a section of the ceiling accompanied by a light fixture that brings out the colors of the wall paper on the ceiling.Lamps-Plus-8

Excellent designs for low ceilings include a flame fixture, sunburst fixture, flush mounted fixture and resin bowl designs among others.  If you have a long hallway with a low ceiling, a repetitive pattern will create both drama and interest.  Lighting for low ceilings can also be achieved by making use of the architecture you have in the room using recessed lighting in the ceiling and walls.  Basically, with a low ceiling you want light fixtures that will maximize diameter or width instead of height.  You can still get the same eye popping ceiling drama without losing the glamour!

    So you mean to tell me if an unrepentant ISIS soldier responsible for causing untold suffering and beheading a fellow human being was captured, he should pay for it by a simple life sentence?

      Capital punishment shouldn’t be the norm for certain crimes as the risk of a mistake is always there. Some people (not just terrorists), however, are simply to dangerous to be allowed to live. Prisoners hardly ever serve a true life sentence, but are released back into society at some point. How often do we hear police describe a parolee as “extremely dangerous, and likely to re-offend”? Escapes take place, and offenders get released by mistake.
      Clifford Olsen, a Canadian who killed several children, stated in response to a question about capital punishment,that the state has not just a right but a duty to protect itself from people like himself.
      The world is changing and compassion, forgiveness and turning the other cheek can’t protect us from the monsters being created by certain ideologies.

    Eliminating evil people is the right thing to do. Keeping them around does not make sense.

    Recently saw a photo of a youngster in Iraq looking up as ISIS terrorists point their guns in his face, also saw photos of kids massacred and if you find those terrorists and need someone to press the switch for the trap-door, give me a call once the trial process ends.
