Hi guys

Bought our house recently. It came with terrible wall lighting that my wife hates. I can't figure out if I should take it out completely, and put in shelving. Or, if I should put in different lighting. Any advice is appreciated.

edit can't attached picture its too big.

Your question is to vague. Are you referring to sconces that she dislikes? What room is this? What do you mean about shelving?

What might work out is both. Why not make custom shelving with little pot lights installed in them. That way you get shelving plus ambient lighting. The wiring is already there so it shouldn't be too big of a problem.
