The second you come home and turn on the lights, it becomes important to be able to orientate oneself immediately. This is why it is a smart to install lights with a high output in places such as hallways or entrances, in other words you need a good ceiling light. The color of the light may not be as important as the efficiency. It can be round or square, choice of material comes down to taste. What is important however, is achieving a well illuminated area.
Power efficiency plays a key role here, and therefore it is important to choose a smart light source, such as a circular fluorescent tube, which has a high output, low energy consumption, and come in various color temperatures. They cost a bit more, but are worth it in the long run.
