Fluorescent Lights

Florescent lights are usually used in many homes as well as offices for energy saving purposes. An 18-watt fluorescent bulb could produce the same amount of light of an 60-watt standard bulb. But this energy efficient feature comes with a cost in the guise of ugly fixtures. Hence there should be a way to cover these ugly fixtures without sacrificing the energy efficient feature of the fluorescent light. This is where the importance of light covers would come in handy. The light cover would allow to conceal those ugly fixtures of the fluorescent light and help you to enjoy the benefits of it. There are several methods of covering fluorescent bulbs. Some of them are highlighted below.

Reflectors – Placing a cover over the fluorescent light is the best way to conceal the ugly features of it. Reflectors or diffusers are actually sheets of translucent material that are used to hang from a chain below those ugly fixtures. Diffusers would really act as a large lampshade for a ceiling light. They are ideal to cover the ugly fixtures of the fluorescent light and allow the user to focus on the beneficial side of the light.

Light Boxes – Light boxes are also made of translucent materials. This light cover would allow light to filter out in multiple directions. The light box was famous in most of the kitchens during the 1980’s. The latest light boxes come in different colors and shapes and are made of lightweight materials.

Rice Paper Light Covers – Rice paper could be made to act as a temporary light cover. They would essentially act as a lampshade here. A frame of wood can be used to affix rice paper in creating a versatile lampshade for fluorescent lights. These type of light covers are more flexible in nature and can be used on table lights, wall lights and many other type of light fixtures.

Soffits – This is one of the most popular techniques used in covering fluorescent lights. Soffit is a ledge which would act as a dropped portion from the ceiling. This will help to create a hidden slot for lighting. This type of covering could be made to blend with the wall and ceiling. These coverings are usually built using wood framings, plastic and metal and crewed on to the ceiling. They are built within the edges of the ceiling to house fluorescent lighting systems.
