Choosing Lighting For Paintings Is Easy

May 23rd, 2011

There are many sites online which provide many different gadgets, like an art light or a LED picture light to illuminate the paintings or photos that we like to have around us. These kinds of gadgets come in many different forms with many having low energy bulbs or low profile properties to make them less obvious. Some of these will be wired directly into the power supply while others will be battery operated. Some are remotely controlled too and this is the height of chic for sure!

Choosing the right gadget for the job is probably the most important thing to do. The size and shape of the painting or photo should be taken into account, along with the surround that it has. Even the decor in the room will have some effect on the choice too and, if so wished, this may be all the ambient illumination needed for people to watch TV or enjoy their dinner etc. Next will be the finish that the buyer will like. Some people like shiny things which glow in the dark, but some people may find this a little too flashy. If this is the case, go for the burnished effects which give the best of both worlds. There are also modern or more traditional shapes on offer too so it is really down to personal taste which ones are best for the room itself.

Apart from the one already mentioned; there are several other kinds of bulbs too which will give a very different effect depending on what is needed. An incandescent bulb will throw a yellowish hue, a halogen bulb bright white and fluorescent will give a cool white glow. Some of these will have some effect on the colors in the painting or prints so it is imperative that just the right one is chosen to bring out the best in the item. Also, for those who are concerned about the size of the gadget, it is imperative to get one that fits in with the print width and height. In general terms, it should be anywhere between half to two thirds the width so that the illumination reaches all the corners in the same intensity.

For the gadgets to work at their best, it is always wise to make sure that they have the right form of power. Sometimes people will have a definite place for the painting in mind and, if this is the case, an electrical outlet can be dug into the wall professionally. For those who do not mind having trailing wires, having an outlet at floor level is also good. However, for those who do not like trailing wires and who do not have the said outlet in the right place, then the battery operated variety fit right into place here.

Lastly, finding the right gadget will certainly lift the look of the room so do not be afraid to experiment in trying out an unusual style etc. If more than one is to be used however, it is a good idea to get them all in the same color or style.
