Candles offer a flickering glow that is perfectly suited for romantic interludes or soft, peaceful light that adds cozy comfort. Scented candles add a pleasant fragrance that can be matched to season or mood.
As a rough guide, having a couple of table lamps, four to six recessed downlighters, a picture light to highlight an ornamental object or painting, some sort of concealed lighting inside a bookshelf or other unit, as well as a floor lamp - are considered a good quantity of light fittings which can be used to properly light up your living room. As you can see, you do not need to have all these different types of lighting and lamps all on at the same time. Rather, for effect, you would have a few lights on depending on what sort of mood you wanted to create and what activities were taking place.
The first and most important layer of lighting in the living room is natural lighting, found through windows and skylights in this space. Mirrors are the best way to enhance small sources of natural light as long as they are balanced with other accessories in order to keep the energy positive in the living room. Natural lighting is your most important source of lighting, and it should be the primary, even sole, source of daytime lighting in the living room if the room receives an abundance of natural light.
