The next thing to do is to carefully select the bulbs. Unlike the kitchen or bathroom, the color of the light in the living room should be warm and yellow not stark white so choose the light bulbs accordingly. CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lights) and LEDs are more energy-efficient than conventional incandescent bulbs and can result in significant savings in the long run.
If you have a nice plant in the room, try placing a small lamp near it and watch how the leaves cast interesting shadows on the walls. Lampshades too can add to the mood as they cast soft and diffused light. Sometimes the unique shape and patterns on the lamps and their shades elevate the lamps themselves from a functional purpose to an aesthetic statement.
Next, what color do you want to get for your lamp? This will depend on the color scheme of your living room. Make sure that the design of the lamp is something that matches with your furniture to ensure that it will not stick out like a sore thumb. The height of the lamp is also very important, so that it will be able to blend in seamlessly at a corner. There are also different kind of light colors, so get one that brings a nice warm hue to your room.
