Let’s face it…most basements are dark by nature!
For most of us our basement is starved of natural light from a lack windows and doors that just aren’t present.
So a finished basement space needs to be artificially lit with plenty of light fixtures. But what fixtures work best in the basements? What light fixtures will create the “best bang for the buck”? Which light fixtures do the best job of “evenly” lighting our new subterranean living spaces?
