Ceiling light fixturesare the most used fixtures in the home. Ceiling lights are used in the bedrooms,, closets, utilities, and any other unassuming rooms of the home. Did you ever wonder if the ceiling light you are purchasing for a certain room is providing sufficient light? The basic rule is to first calculate the square footage of the room. Then multiply that square footage by 1.5 to get the wattage required for proper light. For example if you have a utility room that is 8’ x 10” that would equal 80 square feet. Multiplying 80 x 1.5 = 120 watts. You would need a ceiling fixture that holds 2-60 watt bulks. As you choose or replace ceiling lights, use this rule and enjoy proper lighting in every room.
