Ceiling lighting is more than just gorgeous chandeliers and discreet recessed lights; it's arguably the most practical and efficient way to light a home. Ceiling lights can illuminate entire rooms with minimal obstruction, and oftentimes a single light bulb, simply by being placed in the correct overhead spot. If you’re trying to track down the perfect ceiling light for your space.
With the discovery of fire, the earliest form of artificial lighting used to illuminate an area were campfires or torches. As early as 400,000 BCE, fire was kindled in the caves of Peking Man. Prehistoric people used primitive lamps to illuminate surroundings. These lamps were made from naturally occurring materials such as rocks, shells, horns and stones, were filled with grease, and had a fiber wick. Lamps typically used animal or vegetable fats as fuel. Hundreds of these lamps (hollow worked stones) have been found in the Lascaux caves in modern-day France, dating to about 15,000 years ago. Oily animals (birds and fish) were also used as lamps after being threaded with a wick.
Choose the best one that best matches your home or office interior as there are many lights available for almost every theme. Track lighting can be an excellent choice for home offices and craft rooms.
You can also use room conditioner ceiling fans inside the room, which provides both cooling and warm effects in summer and winter seasons respectively.

Dining Table: The pendant should be suspended about 30 to 36 inches above the table. This will allow for ample illumination while reducing glare at the same time. Bar or Raised Counter:: The bottom of your pendant light should float about 30 inches above the counter surface. For desks, bring the light in closer to the work surface by allowing your pendant lamp to float about 16 inches from the surface. However, this can change depending on the height of you and your family. Foyer: Illuminate your space without encroaching on head space by suspending your hanging lamp about seven feet from the floor.
