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.
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.
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.
Sconces, or wall sconces if you prefer, are a very popular lighting fixture with models designed for both indoor and outdoor use. 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.
