My apartments (in the San Francisco Bay Area, California) are so depressingly dark because I have no ceiling-mounted light fixtures. I just have standing lamps (with 5 ultra-bright bulbs). Where I come from (United Kingdom, and ethnic origin of India) ceiling lighting fixtures are always installed.
I guess installing ceiling lighting (fluorescent tube light would be fantastic) is too expensive. What is the next best substitute? Or if ceiling lighting installation in rented apartments is possible, who do I speak to to try getting them installed?
