ABOUT LIGHTING FIXTURES
There is an immense variety of lighting fixtures available, with even wider choice now possible through the internet. Lighting fixtures can be classified by the style (contemporary, traditional, Tiffany, rustic etc.), the type of room for which they are intended (living room, bedroom, dining room, bathroom etc.), the type of fitting (suspended ceiling, recessed ceiling, wall sconce, table lamp etc.) and the type of bulb (incandescent, fluorescent, low energy, halogen, or LED).
With increasing consciousness of the costs of energy, and the effects of CO2 emissions, there is a strong trend toward energy efficient lighting fixtures. The most efficient type is the Light Emitting Diode (LED), which uses a fraction of the electricity used by an incandescent bulb. This is partly because the LED emits negligible heat.
