Such lighting is best suited for rooms where people relax, spend time in conversations and relaxation.

For premises, where the owners prefer to read, perform any small or accurate work, it is better to choose a chandelier with lamps looking down. They will give a brighter light, the degree of illumination will be higher, which will allow working without harm to the view of the inhabitants of the room.

Light from the lamps sent down, fills the room, creating the maximum brightness of the lighting.
