A ceiling spot light is a single or multi-light fixture. It has a focused beam that is mainly used to highlight one or multiple objects or to attract attention to a specific area. Also known as accent lighting, a ceiling spot light’s directional light adds drama to a room by creating visual interest, such as when highlighting paintings, other works of art and even a beautifully textured wall. Ceiling spot lights may be used for indoor or outdoor applications.
Ceiling spot lights are available in a multitude of styles, finishes, and types. Some spot lights have one head or as many as six heads, and most, if not all are equipped with adjustable heads. Styles include one or more heads attached to a circular canopy while other styles have heads that hang from a curved or straight frame or from a linear track. Moreover, some are so simple that one head may hang from a single, straight rod. Choosing a ceiling spot light that’s right for your interiors is simple as these are also available in a variety of finishes, including chrome, rubbed oil bronze, satin nickel, brushed nickel, brushed steel and satin brass. Ceiling spot lights are available in low voltage halogen, fluorescent or LED types.

A single spot light is also ideal if you have a sculpture on a table that you’d like to draw attention to. Use a fixture with multiple heads if, for example, you have a wall lined with two or more paintings. Spot lights may also be used in commercial spaces, such as in retail stores, wherein directional light is used to highlight clothing and accessories to make them stand out. A track lighting fixture
, wherein individual heads are positioned anywhere along a linear track, give you greater flexibility as to where the beam of light can be applied.
