That a very marked difference is noticed in the ability and comfort with which one can see things in different homes, no one will doubt. This depends on the types of lamps and luminaires used, upon the wattage consumed, the color effect produced by colors of lamps and wall covering; and also on the reflection factors of walls and ceiling. It is on the last mentioned factor that we wish especially to dwell and for which we can give definite experimental data.
