A variety of different lighting fixtures will work for your general lighting. Close-to-ceiling fixtures, wall sconces and interior lamps are excellent choices and provide ample lighting, they are decorative pieces and ideal sources of task lighting for reading or playing games.
This lighting fixture will be the main feature of your room, so it needs to express your personal style while also satisfying your general lighting needs. Use a chandelier for an excellent source of lighting. When hanging a chandelier, make sure that the chandelier is 6″ to 12″ smaller than the narrowest side of the table, and that it has 200 to 400 overall wattage.
Consider a chandelier with an integral downlight for additional light on the table.
Sufficient lighting is a must for performing all your culinary needs or even helping your kids with their homework. Use decorative fluorescent fixtures centred over a workspace. Use under cabinet lighting to help prevent shadows on the counters.
Hallways and stairway.
The halls convey the first impression of a home’s interior, for a big effect choose a traditional chandelier or contemporary pendant to feature in your hallway to provide basic illumination and create a welcoming atmosphere. Light bulb cord with socket are also a good option as it means there should be no leads on show.
