Guide for Different Types of Lighting

Ask any experienced designer what is the most important in working with the interior and you will get the following answer – “light”. Light is what makes a room look bigger or smaller, brighter or darker and so on. Therefore we need to be very careful when selecting lighting fixtures.

Let’s talk about the most popular types of indoor lighting and select the most suitable option for your home.

Recessed lighting

This kind of lighting looks laconic, strict and stylish. The main thing here is to make sure you have provided the lamps with proper insulation. Another important factor is clearance above the ceiling – it should not be less than 5 inches.

Recessed lighting fixtures look fine in a kitchen, hallway or bathroom.


Chandeliers are a classic kind of lighting. Speaking about Regenbogen chandeliers we should note that these look especially luxurious and stylish. This is a great solution for a living room or for a bedroom.

Ceiling lamps

In addition to recessed lighting fixtures there are also Regenbogen ceiling Lamps mounted on the ceiling, but not inside of it. There is a great variety of such lamps in our online store.

Ceiling lamps are so popular due to versatility – one may mount them in an office, kitchen, living room and even bedroom.

Wall sconces

Such lighting is a must-have for houses and apartments with old-style interior. Wall sconces look tremendous side by side with antique mirrors and beautiful paintings, but putting these into a modern interior will just ruin everything.


Undoubtedly, pendants are the best options for kitchen if you want to make this room look cosy and traditional. Variety of pendants nowadays is really impressive – everyone can easily find something spectacular.

Another room where pendants would look fine is a kid’s room since a pendant provides good light focus – for example, on a table where your children do their homework.

Some things remain classic, some things appear for the first time. It concerns everything including lighting. Choosing suitable lighting fixtures will let you turn your interior into the design masterpiece, while selecting something that does not fit the style at all will bring all your efforts to nought.
