Carefully planned lighting is essential for any finished basement. Use a combination of recessed can and recessed fluorescent fixtures to maintain headroom. Use separate circuits and dimmers where possible for versatility.
That's probably the ultimate compliment for anyone who has completed a basement makeover. And a major part of that good impression has to do with an effective lighting scheme. Good lighting is critical in any finished basement, because there's very little natural light available.

The use of decorative fixtures and accent lights, combined with mirrors, will make your finished basement look more like “upstairs” rooms.
Use separate switches to control light levels. It might make sense to turn on general lighting at the top of the basement stairway. Once you're down in the basement, two switches in a single electrical box can give you control of accent and task lights.
Shine the light where the action is. With proper support.
No matter what you use to light your basement, there's no substitute for natural sunlight to keep the area beautiful.
Making the most of your basement windows and window wells is the perfect way to bring as much daylight into the area as possible.
And upgrading the basement windows and window wells will also do wonders to keep the basement energy-efficient!
Recessed fluorescent lights provide maximum illumination at low cost. The fixture and lens cover are sized to fit openings in your ceiling grid.
