Ornella Celeste. Lights. January 10th, 2018.
Floor lamps and table lamps should be dispersed about the room such that separate from any other lighting they can reasonably light the room for most occasions. The room size will ultimately dictate the number of lamps but if you have some other light source three lamps is a good number to consider - one being a floor lamp. Keep in mind that dark lamp shades really restrict the lamp's overall light output.
If you have a TV in the room make sure there's no glare on the screen from any of the lights. This can be controlled by placing a table or desk lamp next to or behind the TV.
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.
However having an elegant looking in the living room is a great idea. This is a place for the visitors to stay when they are in a person's house. So it is usually this particular room where a person considers best putting a sparkling and elegant crystal chandelier.
