Can I light up my house with minimal ceiling lights?

12 days ago

Renovating my house (mid century modern) and finally getting close to running electrical. The existing house had basically no ceiling lights except for some ugly soffits which have been removed. We decided to do exposed beams and with no attic there is no room for recessed lights. We did put in the plan one hanging light fixture for the bedrooms and the great room. Will wall sconces do a good job lighting up the house? I am not too worried about the kitchen as there will be pendant lights and led light strips. I do not want the ceiling to be dark, but I am not sure if wall sconces by themselves will provide enough accent lighting for the ceiling. Maybe I can have wall sconces lower on the wall to provide general lighting and uplight wall sconces further up to light up the ceiling? What do you guys think makes the most sense? Thanks!
