The main light fixture should offer a large amount 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 room because it will be a focal point, in addition to being the primary light source. Choose something inviting, bold, or creative according to your living area decor and taste, but let it be something inherently decorative. Homeowners enjoy installing chandeliers or pendant and hanging fixtures within the sitting and living room for this reason.
