A Contemporary Trend
Although track lighting is a modern trend, it is versatile enough to be used in any age and style home. Whether your house was built in 1960 or 2010, track lighting can be used in hallways to highlight pictures or installed outdoors to illuminate a new porch. If you are a new homeowner in an older house, add some young flair with these trendy tracks. However, you do not have to feel restricted by design preferences; track lighting will not clash with vintage decor the way a modern lamp might.
Rather than a bulky floor lamp that you may have to put together yourself, track lighting can be easily installed – especially near an existing power source. Even ceilings that have an electrical box for wiring fixtures may need more lighting in certain areas of the room. Once the track is installed, you can angle the heads in directions that need light the most. For instance, if you want to display a favorite painting or have a spotlight on your desk.
