To maximize light output use a T5 fluorescent or LED light source that will wash the ceiling with light. This helps to create a brighter ceiling that bounces and reflects light throughout the space without glare. Combine this with lots of natural daylight to increase the overall light levels in a room.

Notice that this space also includes a pendant sconces and art lamps (more on those later) as well as a full wall of windows. Including at least three layers of light from different categories and in different locations eliminates strong shadows and adds a sense of sparkle that allows all the other furnishings to look their best.

Plus they are often combined with a wall washer so the architecture is fully on display. Uplights can also act as wall washers when installed in the floor especially in contemporary homes. The effect of many wall washers and pot lights can be a bit modernist and even a little cold so use this effect only if you enjoy a minimalist gallery-inspired look.

The line between these two can be blurry as a chandelier is essentially just a large (and often more decorative) pendant light. Chandeliers also are more likely to have multiple bulbs (which help create more layers) but what is or is not a pendant is still a gray area especially with more modern fixtures like the one here.
