Different rooms require different types of lighting, for instance the Kitchen requires the most functional lighting, helping shed some light on your food preparation.

In a living room, the hub of the house, as used for a number of different functions the ability to create atmosphere is important. A place to socialise and entertain, or to relax with the latest boxset and have the occasional afternoon nap you can see how ambient mood lighting is necessary here.
Chandeliers, ceiling and pendant lights are a striking addition to any living room, providing an illuminating glow to the space, also great to wire in with a dimmer switch enabling you to adjust the feel of the room instantly.
Floor lamps also work very well as a main source of lighting in a lounge area and where you have limited table space for a table lamp. One of the best things about floor lamps is their portability, abling you to refresh your room layout easily from time to time if you wish.
Table lamps are a lovely little addition to your lighting arsenal, they work well to illuminate forgotten corners of the room, or can create somewhat of a feature if you pair two matching lamps in a symmetrical position, this creates a very sophisticated feel to the room. Spotlight style table lamps also make great task lighting helping you when reading or working.
