Don’t limit lighting to downlights. Depending on the location consider wall sconces or uplighting to create a softer ambiance and avoid potentially harsh downlighting that can cast ominous shadows.
A floor lamp nestled against a window is a smart substitute for daylight so that when the sun goes down an ambient glow will pour in from a similar direction to balance the central light overhead.
As you evaluate the status of your lighting style keep in mind that lighting also functions as art that helps define your style set the mood and perform practical tasks. Think of adding light in unexpected places such as a chandelier in the master bathroom. And consider using light in unconventional ways — such as using hanging pendant lights as reading lamps.
