Artificial lighting is the primary source of nighttime lighting in the typical home, and many of us use it for a variety of evening and late night activities. This may include reading, writing, using the computer, watching television, enjoying movies, or late night talks with special friends and family members. A flip of a switch can add or remove illumination as desired to create almost any mood or support any function.
It's best if you plan the decor of your living room with the lighting in mind. The most important fixture for creating the right mood is the table lamp. So place table lamps in strategic places like the side tables on either side of your sofa or next to the armchair where you like to sit and read. You can also place table lamps on a sideboard, a wet bar or a chest. Table lamps act like accent lights, lighting up only their surrounding areas. They create interest in the room because there are pockets of light and shadow and the different areas in the room are lit selectively. If your room only had a ceiling light, the entire room would be uniformly and, perhaps, quite brightly lit, creating an uninviting, cold feel.
A floor lamp with an up light can also be placed in the corner of the room to highlight a ceiling detail. If you have painting or pictures on the walls, use spotlights to focus on them.
