Help with overhead lighting of living room
Right now, our living room has one recessed overhead light. We never use it because it doesn't really "light" anything, but a circle of carpet. I'd like to change it out for something else that would look nicer and be more functional.
I've attached 2 pictures so you can see what the room looks like. It's a standard L shaped living/dining room combo. I didn't clean up, because with three little kids, the room looks like this more often than not, so I wanted you to have a REAL feel for the room. The ceilings are 8ft high and as you can see the light is not in the center of the room. It is in line with the dining room chandelier. The light is 6 ft. from the fireplace wall and we have the couch placed about 16ft from the fireplace wall.
Would a ceiling fan be a poor choice because of ceiling height? What would be a good choice?
