Recessed trough lights 16"x48" give off the best overall light by far.

Even a black basement ceiling could feel inviting.

Up lighting can sometimes create a sense of height, as can a ceiling colour that is a shade lighter than the wall colour - agreed with Fred that hiding light fixtures is an advantage.
