That being said, remember that overhead lighting is great so long as it is accompanied by additional task lighting such as wall sconces or reading lamps. This is to avoid casting shadows, creating glare, and causing eyestrain from insufficient lighting at eye level. Task Lighting- Use table lamps or free standing lamps for working on individual projects such as a puzzle, game, paper, crocheting or other hobby.
For example, when I got a call from a new client who said her living room was "too dark" I knew I had to take a look before I could be of much help. After all, what is too dark? If you like to sit and do fine needlepoint your lighting requirements may differ than those needed for the sports enthusiast who just wants to watch some TV while entertaining friends. Also, family spaces come in all kinds of shapes and sizes and often have a unique set of strengths and weaknesses. And, of course, ceiling heights may vary.
Since video is my profession I plan our living room layout around the TV and entertainment center (again to the chagrin of my wife). The TV is always placed at an angle away from the main window in the room in order to eliminate window reflections on the screen. Our living room lamps have shades that direct lighting downward and are not very translucent in order to minimize their reflections.
Today, most kitchens have at least one ceiling light fixture, that is mounted on the kitchen is ceiling surface or is recessed in the ceiling. These lighting fixtures often use compact fluorescent light bulbs or standard incandescent light bulbs. A number of manufacturers now make bulbs that work with these standard sockets.
