Lighting Fixture Catalogs Should Be Reviewed

Lighting fixture catalogs have a wealth of information for homeowners looking to upgrade their display illumination. These product listings are an excellent first step for homeowners planning a project, and there are some valuable pieces of information a homeowner can pick up by looking through a listing. Armed with this info, a homeowner can speed up the selection process and ask more in depth questions during a consultation with a designer.

Most lighting fixture catalogs include pictures of the product, along with some technical specs. Phantom’s product listings are designed to be a comprehensive reference guide, offering a quick glance in the form of specifications and features, and more detailed looks at how the system can be positioned and customized.

However, even with some basic details and a photo or two, a homeowner can make some decisions about what system to look for. Does a particular product fit in with a home’s aesthetic? Is it classic, elegant or contemporary? Is it compatible with modern illumination technologies, like LED, or is it designed for older systems? Can it be aimed in multiple directions, or does it only fire up or directly down? How customizable is it? Can it be positioned and then aimed, or does it need to be aimed before positioning?

All important questions, and the answers will be different for each illumination source. It can seem like a lot of info to take in, but that info will help a homeowner make the right choice.
