Ceiling lights certainly have their place, but when you’re looking for a little more atmosphere, romantic ambiance or you just want to relax, then turning to other options is the way to go. This post explores how to light a room without the use of ceiling lights.
Everyone Loves a Lamp
Using a combination of lamps to light a room without the use of ceiling lights is one solution. Using lamps gives you more control and allows you to adjust the amount of light in any given room. You can brighten up dingy corners using lamps or even create zones within an open plan living space – but which lamps are best for a particular purpose?
Table lamps are very versatile and can be used for many different reasons. On a desk as a reading light for example or on top of a set of drawers in an alcove. The trick is to plan where you are going to place the table lamp ahead of buying it and to figure out why it is needed, then choose your new lamp accordingly.
Typically used in combination with other types of lamps and lighting, floor lamps come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Adjustable floor lamps, lamps with multiple shades, arc and tripod floor lamps are among the designs that you may want to consider. Placed in a corner or behind a piece of furniture, floor lamps are an effective way to help light your living space.
