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.
When it comes to lighting the bathroom and kitchen you obviously want something that provides good light to work in but also packs something of a style punch. There are many flush mount lights that fill these roles perfectly and they will typically cost anywhere from $40 to $75.
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.
The small globe fixtures that are perfect for lighting closets are the least expensive type of lighting and can be purchased for as little as $10 These are not powerful but they serve the purpose of providing light in a closet just fine. If your closet is not wired with a light switch there are battery powered versions of these lights available.
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.
In some cases spot lights are also used to bring attention to specific areas of the living room such as the loop created by sofa sets around the TV unit. Corner end tables that come with a living room set are good for creating a platform for decorative lampshades that will lit the entire sofa set area for some extra lighting.
