What type of lighting do you prefer: overhead or table lamps?

Overhead. I feel like you can't get enough light in a room with just table lamps. Actually I prefer overhead direct and indirect lighting with some LED spots and task lighting as required, but that might just be the architect in me:)

I like it really light and overhead is lighter, so that's what I use.

It depends on the room & what I'm doing. I tend to not like things as bright as DH, he is the king of lights. I like natural light during the day & whatever I can get by with at night. We just painted an accent wall in our living room metallic copper, it looks great with the standing lamp with 3 fixtures shining on it, definitely a nice glow. I love that I can read on my iPad whiteout turning on lights!

Also depends on what room and what I'm doing. We have bright overhead lighting in the kitchen and I hate it. Ray turns it on every chance he gets. In our family room I'm okay with lamps. I like natural light coming into the house and in the morning I hate lights turned on.

I am a lamp person.... I like soft glow lighting as opposed to bright white light.

It does depend what room I am in..

In my kitchen I have over the counter lights- when we built the house the electric guy talked me into them- so glad he did =).. He said that is where you are working - on the counter.
