What better place to avoid the glare of downlights? Valance or cove lighting in a bedroom, concealing 32 watt T8's, creates a very clean, tranquil effect. It can be youthful in a child’s room, or elegant in a master bedroom. The uplight also acts to enhance sloped ceiling lines, resulting in a much more interesting room. 15 watt CFLs, the equivalent of 60 watt incandescents, cast a soft glow from the table lamps in guest bedrooms.
