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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
