Track Lighting

Track Lighting is perfect for rooms that need a little bit of extra light in certain areas – it’s popular in bathrooms over the mirror as well as in kitchens above food prep areas.

Flush Mount Overhead Lighting

Flush Mount lighting is one of the most common overhead lighting options. It’s simple, inexpensive, and functional. Chances are, you’ve got at least one flush mount light fixture in your home already.


Pendant Lighting

Pendant lighting works well in many spaces – especially in hallways and corridors. It’s a good option for smaller rooms as well, but many styles wouldn’t give off enough light for a larger room. Here are some fun choices.



Chandeliers give off a lot more light, and are very popular overhead lighting choices for dining rooms. Because you can find them in designs ranging from very simple to very elaborate and elegant, you could potentially put them in any room in your home.

As you can see, there is an overhead lighting option to fit every style, decor, and every budget. What works best for you depends on your personal taste as well as your home’s design.
