Introduction to Picture Lighting

Adding or switching out old and non-functioning Picture Lighting for better fixtures or more efficient Picture Lighting can be a small act with big results. Few items in the Picture can make or break the room quite like Picture Lighting. The right Picture Lighting can determine whether you use a room often and how much you dislike or enjoy spending time there. A well-lit Picture, piece of artwork or sculpture, due to great Picture Lighting can mean that you enjoy your space, live, work and play in it well and often, and are getting the most out of that room in your home. Capitol Lighting does so many things well and right; One of those things is selling you the best rated Picture Lighting.

Pictures, Artwork or Sculptures or a combination of the three are displayed in almost every home. Some photos or pictures are beloved and you want to show them off. Maybe no one notices them because the lighting isn’t good around them to show them off. The question why is usually answered by the lighting choice! The Picture or Artwork in your home should be well lit, so you can show your wall décor off as you want to. The number of fixtures does not necessarily determine how much light your Picture will have; you can buy one piece of lighting or use one Picture light on either side of the Artwork or Sculpture or Photo. You just need the correct fixtures for the room, rather than many that do not light it well. Capitol Lighting has a great variety of Picture Lighting to fit your needs.

Wall lighting is a popular choice among many homeowners because of their many advantages. They are versatile types of fixtures that you can use in any part of the home for different purposes. Some wall lights, on the other hand, have specific functions. Take picture lighting, for instance. These are lights used to highlight pictures, paintings, or wall accents in the room. Are there paintings or pictures hanging unnoticed in your living room? Bring life to them with proper picture lighting.

What are Picture Lights?

Picture lights focus the attention of people to an object or area of a room. These are fixtures attached above the object, designed to provide direct illumination but without blocking the object you want to highlight. You do not need to free up wall space just to provide proper lighting as in the case of wall sconces and other wall lighting fixtures.

Picture lights are not new in the lighting industry. You have seen them many times in art galleries and museums. Today, however, many people have started using them in their homes too.

How to Choose the Best Picture Lighting

The picture or painting will lose its appeal if you use the wrong kind of light. Choose picture lights according to the theme of the picture or painting you wish to illuminate. If the picture is calm and subtle, then the fixture must also be simple but chic. An elaborate fixture will only draw people’s attention to the lighting fixture instead of the object it is supposed to highlight.

The size of the picture is also an important consideration. Most experts agree that the picture light must be half the size of the picture or painting. Too much light will make the picture look flat and dull. Over time, it may also cause fading. You need just the right size that will be able to cast light in an artistic way.

Where and How to Place Picture Lights

One problem you will probably encounter when placing picture lights is the picture or painting’s glass covering. The glass covering might reflect light and distract viewers from appreciating the beauty of the object. You need to position the picture light in such a way that it minimizes glare. Another way to reduce glare is to tilt the picture slightly to the floor.
