The most common type is your standard baffle trim. The baffle provides ambiant room lighting. You can create task lighting with the cans by adding a spot also commonly known as an eyeball. You can focus the light with these on a area to creating a working area or you can high light a piece of artwork or furniture.
You’ll want to consider your décor and the overall style of your home and go from there. Try to choose similar or complementary colors, or go big and bold with a pendant light that provides an interesting contrast to the room. Large, single pendant lights can make a statement, but don’t overlook smaller options as these can be just as bold when grouped together. If you do decide to go with a set of hanging lights, remember the “Rule of Three”, which will help you maintain a rhythmic balance. Whatever you do, make sure your pendant lighting doesn’t create a visual barrier in the room.
