Consider pendant lighting. 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.

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.

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.

Similar to the sconce but possessing a personality all its own is the wall lamp. 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.

Skylights. Skylights aid in bringing the daylight into your living room. If you need to light up an area that doesn't have a lot of ceiling space you should use tubular skylights. The good side with these fixtures is that they collect and channel daylight from a collector on the roof to a diffuser in the room's ceiling without the need of you installing a finished skylight.

Natural Direct Sunlight. Natural light received from the Sun is the most obvious and healthy source of light we receive during daytime. Though the intensity and quantity of sunlight coming inside the space can be controlled using diffused glasses or curtains on windows. When the direct sunlight falls on the inside walls the color of the walls temporarily changes to a mixture of sunlight plus the original wall shade. This particular phenomenon can be use to our advantage. By finding out the wall that received direct sunlight and painting that wall with bright color a beautiful diffused and "reflected light" can be created absolutely free. This "reflected light" will help in creating an ambience in the living room. Also shadow patterns on this wall will add to some extra excitement if used creatively.

Wall light fixtures such as sconces and wall lamps are often overlooked when lighting purchases are made. Why is this? Some may be hesitant of the installation factor - wall fixtures need to be mounted and may need minor electrical work as well. With floor and table lamps one need simply plop the light down plug it in and voila - let there be light. So yes there is a little extra work or installation cost (for you non do-it-yourselfers) as opposed to other lighting options. But there are also some major advantages wall lighting has over standard lamps. Floor and table space for one. Everyone wants more room for family photos trinkets and even plants on their end tables and wall lighting is a great way to get this space while still adequately lighting a room. Second with floor and table lamps come unsightly and often dangerous (especially if you have kids running around) electrical cords. Properly installed wall lights are hard-wired and all wiring is hidden behind your walls giving your room an ultra-clean look. Let's take a look at a few popular wall lighting options shall we.

Artificial lighting is a wide area of study of interior designers. 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.
