The lighting in your living room area should be warm and inviting. Your family area is the site of family gatherings, and should evoke pleasant feelings. Even rooms that don't have overhead lighting can be made cheery and bright by strategically placing a few great living room lamps. End display and tables cases are good places to place lamps that will make up for virtually any lack of lighting that you may have. Many homes have spots that floor lamps will work at the same time. Floor lamps is often great, in that light will bounce off the ceiling and be diffused through the entire room, shedding some all-important light on all of your family.
