    Default Advice on lighting a finsihed attic.

    I have an old house with a finished attic. At the moment, there's a very old flush mount ceiling lamp with 3 bare bulbs. I'm thinking of replacing it. What do you suggest for lighting a room with angled walls. The ceiling is about 8 ft high, and the knee wals go up 48 inches. The box is in the middle of the room.

    I know in a basement, it's good to bounce light to make it look bigger, but what about a room like this with angled walls? Halogens boucning of the angled walls? Or?

    My opinion is to install a white 4 feet fluorescent lamps (maybe two, depending on the size of the attic.) The kind which hangs with a chain, attached to the ceiling.

    I pefer the track lighting with halogen can lights that you can angel and slide on the bar to differnt locations or position. I think by keeping the light closer to the ceiling is better. Good luck. Process of elimination.
