Ordinary fluorescent light covers -- the kind you see everywhere, in stores and offices and hallways -- tend to yellow and crack with age. Today's lighting designers are moving toward decorative fluorescent light diffusers, which soften the light while providing attractive touches. Some even allow you to look up at "sky" or "balloons" instead of bulbs and fixtures! These are particularly valued in medical, dental and other health-care settings, as a way to put patients at their ease, but there's no reason you can't use them in your kitchen, bathroom or any other place that needs an uplifting view.
