The main light fixture should offer a great deal of light. This is usually an overhead fixture, though some designers are moving away from this traditional solution. In addition to being the primary source of light, this fixture should add aesthetic appeal to the room because it will be a focal point. Choose something inviting, bold, or creative according to your room decor and taste, but let it be something inherently decorative. Homeowners enjoy installing chandeliers or pendant and hanging fixtures in the sitting and living room for this reason.
