Fabric ceiling lights – General lighting in its cosiest form
General lighting – an essential part of any room – is easy to achieve with ceiling lights. Coming in all different shapes, colours, sizes, designs, materials and of course with modern LED technology, there is almost no better way to furnish your home with a basic yet stylish lighting effect.
Why choose a fabric ceiling light?
We recommend fabric ceiling lights for the following reasons:
- Fabric lampshades create a particularly cosy and homely atmosphere due to its material and design.
- Light shines through fabric lampshades to provide a particularly snug and atmospheric lighting effect. It is also more muted and non-reflective.
- Fabric ceiling lights come in all kinds of design, shape, colour and material combinations.
Do fabric ceiling lights come with LED technology?
Absolutely - and if you don’t want to have to change a light bulb ever again, opt for a fabric ceiling light with permanently installed LEDs. This means you’ll be able to enjoy the most beautiful light without ever having to change the light bulb.
What designs, colours and sizes do fabric ceiling lights come in?
We offer round, square and rectangular lampshades. Popular trends of late include having several circular fabric lampshades of different sizes that fit inside each other or having several small circular lights connected together on a beam on the ceiling.
As for the colour of fabric lampshades, the hottest choices these days are classic white, grey or cream, but you can also get black, brown, green, orange, red – the sky is the limit. You can even get printed lampshades. Create fascinating lighting effects in your room with gorgeous details in materials such as crystal, metal or wood.
Which rooms are best suited for fabric ceiling lights?
In living rooms and bedrooms, fabric ceiling lights are a perfect fit! That’s because the light pouring through the fabric lampshade is gently muted and fills the room without any glare – so it’s ideal for relaxing. Besides the light, the fabric lampshade itself radiates comfort, cosiness and ambience.
Fabric ceiling lights work well in halls and hallways too, especially if you’re going for a cosier feel in these areas. Just make sure there’s enough light when you’re looking for your keys or putting on your shoes!
Dining rooms are also a good option, particularly for general lighting. However, if you’d like to light specific spaces, such as the dining table, we have a better suggestion – hanging lights! You can even get these with a cosy and effective fabric lampshade.
The one room that we don’t recommend using fabric ceiling lights in is the kitchen because odours from cooking get absorbed and grease can settle in the fabric – and nobody wants that. We recommend opting instead for a ceiling light without a fabric lampshade or even downlights, spotlights or LED panels.
Can you dim fabric ceiling lights?
It depends on the type of ceiling light you choose.
Ceiling lights with permanently installed LEDs
It depends on the product. Check the product description to see whether or not your light is dimmable. You may need to attach an external dimmer.
Ceiling lights with replaceable light bulbs
These lights are only dimmable if you attach an external dimmer. In case you have a suitable dimmer, you can use it with any halogen or traditional light bulb – or LED bulbs if you prefer! Simply make sure that the product description states that the LED light bulbs are dimmable.
Ceiling lights with the Easy-Dim function
You can dim these lights easily from the wall switch - all you have to do is attach your ceiling light!
