Planning:

SHOULD I CHOOSE LIGHTS THAT POINT UP OR DOWN?

This is largely a matter of personal choice. However there are a few things to consider. Lights that point up reflect most of their light back down off the ceiling and will work best if you have a white or pale coloured ceiling. If you choose lights with glass shades they will allow light through whether they are pointing up or down and clear shades will obviously let more light through that frosted or coloured shades. Consider how much light you need in the room taking into account any other lights (wall lights, floor lamps etc.) that you have in the room.
