Where should I put my lighting?
“Ideally, lights should be below your eye level,” says Adelman. “Set up task lights under the stove range or cabinets to light countertops.” In living rooms, use a combination of floor lamps, table lamps, and down-lights (recessed or track lighting). “Here the lighting should be part of the decor,” says Galuppi.

Do up and down lights give much light?
