What are the best sized
for a 21X18 foot den? And how many lights? Thanks
Thank you for reporting this.

The answer could be anywhere between 0 and 10 or so. Without a plan of the room or photos, I don't know where to begin. Usually I like to place
where it might serve a dual purpose such as lighting up a bookcase at the same time as making it safe to walk through the room. I also like to use recessed lights pointed at artwork, while providing ambient light for that area of the room.
You may, and probably do, have a
which will need a recessed light or two above it. A lamp would also be a good addition to a desk area, so if your desk is in the middle of the room, I hope you have a floor outlet to give it power.
If you can tell us more, we could probably do the same for you.
