Put light where you need it. I used a 320/meter COB light strip which gives an even light that fills the whole room, much like the sun does during the middle of the day. But without the heat and using only 24 watts.
This light strip is five meters long, so it spreads light throughout the whole room. Yet it doesn’t take up a lot space, is energy efficient, and can be dimmed to suit your needs. The photo shows it when it is dimmed mid brightness, since the room has dark walls and furniture, it appears subdued. I can bring it up to full brightness to make it seem like noon on a sunny day.
