The Drum, these enclosed rounds are more tailored than some other styles, bringing a little formality to the table while retaining a sleek and modern profile. Some have see-through shades, but we really like something a bit more oblique. They direct most of their light downward and upward, providing a beautiful column of illumination. You’ll want to augment with sconces or spots, as these emit less ambient light.
Per 100 feet of square footage, add CFMs for each fixture. Here is a list of CFM limits per fixture. Toilet 50 CFM, Bathtub 75 CFM, Small shower enclosure 50 CFM, Large shower enclosure 100 CFM, Jetted bathtub 100CFM.
Also consider whether you want suspended lighting or whether to use wall brackets or recessed lights for your lighting fixtures. So what one can do is use one central focal point for lighting and balance it out with recessed lighting fixtures at other points. You can also use wall brackets or sconces in conjunction with a central lighting fixture for optimum effect. So let proper lighting illuminate your dining room and your dining room furniture for the greatest effect.
Shadows: One of the main problems with overhead lighting is that downward light will cast shadows and leave areas of darkness because there are places that it simply cannot reach. Areas such as those beneath cabinets will not be adequately lit by a ceiling light therefore additional lighting such as under cabinet lighting may become necessary. You will need to choose the appropriate lighting for each area, and this does not mean that it has to be expensive or large fittings.
