Characteristics Single chandeliers are mostly used in bedrooms and restaurants. Multi-head chandeliers should be installed in the living room.

The chandeliers have the most patterns, including European candlestick chandeliers, Chinese chandeliers, crystal chandeliers, parchment chandeliers, fashion chandeliers, conical cap lanterns, pointed flat cap lanterns, waist cap lanterns, five-prong ball chandeliers, yulan cap lanterns, olive chandeliers, etc. The lowest point of ceiling lamp installation height shall be not less than 2.2 meters from the ground.

Choose Consumers had better choose chandeliers that can install energy-saving lamps. Don’t choose the pendant lamp with electroplated layer, because the electroplated layer will fade over time. Select all-metal and glass chandeliers that are consistent inside and outside.

Consumers should not choose chandeliers that are too cheap. At present, the quality of chandeliers around 200 yuan can be guaranteed to a certain extent. The quality of chandeliers below 100 yuan is generally poor.

Luxury chandeliers are generally suitable for duplex houses, while simple low-pressure lanterns are suitable for ordinary houses.
The highest grade and the most expensive are crystal chandeliers, but there are few real crystal chandeliers. Crystal chandeliers are mainly sold in Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other places. The sales volume in the north is very small, which is also related to

the air quality in the north, because the dust on crystal chandeliers is not easy to clean.

Choose There are two kinds of ballasts in ceiling lamps: inductive ballasts and electronic ballasts. Compared with inductive ballasts, electronic ballasts can improve the light efficiency of lamps and systems, can start instantaneously, and prolong the life of lamps. At the same time, it has small temperature rise, no noise, small volume, light weight, and power consumption is only 1/3 to 1/4 of that of inductive ballast, so consumers should choose electronic ballast ceiling lamp.

The annular lamp tube of ceiling lamp has halogen powder and tricolor powder, and the tricolor powder lamp tube has good color rendering, high luminous intensity and slow light decay; Halogen powder lamps have poor color rendering, low luminosity and fast light decay. Distinguishing halogen powder from tricolor powder lamp can light both lamps at the same time. Place your hands near the two lamps. You can find that the light of halogen powder lamp is white and distorted. The light of tricolor powder lamp is the natural color of skin.

Floor lamp ? Characteristics Floor lamps are often used for local lighting, not comprehensive, but emphasizing the convenience of movement, which is very practical for creating a corner atmosphere. If the lighting mode of floor lamp is directly projected downward, it is suitable for reading and other activities requiring concentration.

Choose The choice of desk lamp mainly depends on the quality of electronic accessories and the manufacturing process: generally, the electronic accessories of desk lamps from small manufacturers are of poor quality and the manufacturing process level is relatively low, so consumers should choose the desk lamps produced by large manufacturers. Generally, living rooms and bedrooms are decorated with table lamps, while work tables and study tables are equipped with energy-saving eye-protecting table lamps, but energy-saving lamps cannot be dimmed.


Characteristics Downlight is generally installed on the surrounding ceiling of bedroom, living room and toilet.

This kind of concealed lamp embedded in the ceiling projects all the light downward and belongs to direct light distribution. Different reflectors, lenses, blinds and bulbs can be used to obtain different light effects. Downlight does not occupy space, which can increase the soft atmosphere of space. If you want to create a warm feeling, you can try to install more downlights to reduce the pressure of space.

Choose The main problem of downlights lies in the lamp socket. Some miscellaneous downlights have lamp sockets that are not resistant to high temperature and are easy to deform, resulting in the bulb not being screwed down.

Choose Spotlights are divided into low-voltage and high-voltage types. Consumers had better choose low-voltage spotlights, which have longer service life and higher luminous efficiency. The lighting effect of spotlights is reflected by power factor. The higher the power factor, the better the lighting effect. The power factor of common spotlights is about 0.5, which is cheap. The power factor of high-quality spotlights can reach 0.99, which is slightly more expensive.
