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.

Wall sconces generally don't jut out too far from a wall, like wall lamps can, and are usually fixed in a single position. They can be uplights or downlights, and some designs can even be mounted in either position. This feature just adds to the sconce's versatility. Sconces work well in almost any room, but are ideal for halls and entryways, and can even work well in dining rooms.

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.

You also want them to relax in a warm and cosy environment. The easiest way to create the right mood is by using the right lighting in the room.

This wall fixture distinguishes itself by generally having the ability to swivel and swing on a jointed arm. The wall lamp thus juts out farther from the wall than a standard sconce. The swinging arm makes the wall lamp perfect for living rooms and bedrooms, or anywhere one does a lot of reading. The adjustable nature of these fixtures puts you in control of the lighting more so than most any other light fixture you can buy.

Unlike sunlight in this type of lighting every aspect of light, right from its color to it's intensity or even it's area of spreading can be controlled with various controls. Also depending upon the requirement of the living room space a single or multiple number of lights of various intensities can be used. But for creating a "moody" environment lights are used in specific areas of the living room such as ceiling corners or along the edge of the room. In creating a mood it is necessary to hide the light source and only show its effect. By hiding the light source using a "false ceiling" and projecting the light on bright colored ceiling panels such kind of mood can be created.

It works perfectly in high-ceilinged rooms; therefore, if your living room has a high ceiling you should highly consider going for this lighting. The good thing with the lighting is that it brings the source of illumination closer to where it's required. At the same time it provides visual interest over your head.
