Lights. Saturday , January 13th , 2018 - 08:28:32 AM
If your living room is also where your children occasionally do their homework then supplement the lamps with a ceiling fixture. If the kids do their assignments on the coffee table then a fixture directly above the table is a good idea as the light will also be in the center of your seating area and won't look out of place. But don't forget to use dimmers particularly on the ceiling lights as you can control the brightness of the light and thus control the ambiance in the room.
Finally on the day that you are entertaining guests use only your lamps and spotlights and perhaps light a few candles in the room to create added intimacy. The ceiling light should remain switched off.
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.
