Before getting a floor lamp, there are some things to consider. Firstly, what kind of floor lamps do you want? Do you want these lamps for decoration purposes, or do you intend to do some serious reading with it? Your purpose will determine what kind of bulb you should get for it. For proper reading, you would need a higher wattage bulb, but for decorative purposes just get a low wattage bulb and it will serve its purpose.
Wall Sconces- Wall sconces provide great ambient lighting, especially larger or multiple arm scones. As mentioned above, sconces and a large overhead fixture are the perfect combination.
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.
