What kind of light is in the center beam of this picture. And is it a adequate light source. Is it worth the trouble? We are remodeling the den.
Thank you for reporting this. Undo

What you have in this room is called a "coffered ceiling" and the light is "recessed" or "can lights". I have to say, I don't normally see the lights mounted in the woodwork as well as the ceiling panels. Recessed lighting is an is an adequate ambient or all over light source. However, it should be on a dimmer. All lights should be on dimmers to create layered light in the room that you can control. If you feel the light is adequate, you can add a couple of items of additional light source. You need more accent lamps and side tables to put them on, especially on each side of the sofa. You could also mount a beautiful chandelier over the coffee table in the ceiling panel. Looks like you have a lovely home.
