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