Pendant lighting is also another attractive choice. This type of lighting is typically used to provide light that reflects off the ceiling and diffuse the light around the room. Recessed lighting is also good to use for soft, ambient lighting. Soft white or yellow bulbs are used for this type of lighting which is actually embedded into the ceiling. Flourescent lighting is the typical lighting you find in pretty much any standard commercial building. In homes, it is usually reserved for utility rooms like the laundry room or the "mud room".
The same applies to ceiling lights in corridors. These can be softened with sconces and table lamps in the same style or in another style depending on your taste and desires. In the bedroom practicality and mood is important. The style of ceiling lighting has an important role to play. Table lamps and sconces are particularly useful as complements to the ceiling lights.
Lighting should be more focused when food is being prepared in the kitchen. In that case ceiling lighting will not be sufficient. The area around the sink, the cooker and other areas where food is prepared can be lit by track lighting, down lights and under cabinet lighting.
For general lighting, you may wish to use an ambient lighting, which lights the whole kitchen, on the form of a flush or drop fitting, depending on the height of the ceiling. For instance you can install a ceiling light over the bar or the table as this will create the mood of the room. It may also be a single pendant light or a group of three or four lights depending of the size of the area to be illuminated.
All of these factors and many more come into play when you are choosing the lights you will be using for your outdoor areas. You will need to consult with a professional when it comes to installing these lights since you will need to wire these, install switches and other things you will need to do to properly install these lights. You will also need to consult with these professionals on the location of these lights for maximum illumination.
