The light fixture you need for a closed study space may be different from the one you need for a living room with a lot of guests and entertainment. The key is not to overdo it and not to under do it either. Keep your personality in mind and never do anything in haste while deciding lighting for the house.
Kitchen Needs Cabinet Lighting
The kitchen is the busiest room in the house which requires well-lit counters to cook, wash, do daily chores, and cut veggies. This room needs accent lighting from a pendant as well as task oriented lighting which will be given by cabinet lighting. Cabinet lighting ensures all areas of the kitchen are bright and prevents shadows from being cast where knives and other harmful tools are kept.
Dining Room Needs a Decorative Chandelier
Don’t you want make guests to feel great and at home when they arrive for the dinner you invited them for? The impact of your dinner wouldn’t last under plain fixtures even if your food was tasty and irresistible. This is where chandeliers can make an impact. Chandeliers are suspended over the dining table and provide a decorative element that enhances the beauty of your furniture and the whole dining room.
Living Room Needs Layered Lighting
The living room is the most used room of all the other rooms. It is necessary to have multiple light sources to suit the different uses. Since this is an all-purpose room, it needs layered lighting.

The light could be from a chandelier, a normal lighting bulb, a ceiling fan with a light, and multiple pendants.

Mood lights can be used near the bed which give a homely and cozy feel to the room. Mood lighting helps us relax after a hard day at work.
