Lighting is important in a room to create the effect you want. In our living room, or main room as some people would call it, we have two large windows. This room flows into the dining area where we have a bay window along the same wall, so we have a lot of outside lighting during the day. In the evening, we use several lamps which is sufficient for us.
When people need additional lighting, they may consider adding a lamp and maybe a wall sconce. When planning lighting for a particular room, it’s important to remember all the different uses for that room and plan accordingly.
