Lighting a room with a post and beam ceiling
My kitchen ceiling is open beams with sheetrock in the bays that is screwed to the floor above. If I use flushmount ceiling lights on the sheetrock, will the light get 'trapped' in the beams? I need a solution that creates diffuse/ambient light in the space.
Would I be better off using semiflushmount lights on rods that put the fixtures themselves below the beams?
Or should I use a monorail system mounted to the bottom of the beams with some pendants and some directional heads?
Any other ideas?
