Low ceilings can make a room seem small and large fixtures that hang in living space can be annoying and even dangerous. Understanding how light in room will help you choose best type of outdoor ceiling lights for your low ceiling, either in a basement, attic or other areas of your home.
Light does not have to travel as far as he bounces around room; he loses less intensity than it would be in a room with standard outdoor ceiling lights. Paint your ceiling and walls a light color to maximize light bounce, and use of floor lamps that use light bulbs halogen tube aimed towards ceiling. Wall sconces that aim to increase height of walls are also useful in low ceiling areas, but generally are not sufficient as a primary light source.
Choose light fixtures, wall sconces or if ceiling mount toilets, which are low profile. This means they are thin and do not stick in room as much as other devices. For outdoor ceiling lights, look for units that use two or more bulbs in bases that hang on side instead of down. Choose lights that fit snugly against walls.
