Q: I recently moved into a one bedroom apartment in Denver. The kitchen, dining room (turned into my computer room) and living room make up one wing of my apartment. All the rooms connected look like a huge corridor. The light in the kitchen is two huge fluorescent long bulbs. The one in the computer room is a 60 watt bulb tucked away in a recessed ceiling fixture. The only lighting I have in the living room is a floor lamp from Ikea. How do I brighten up the living room and computer room to look more inviting?
Right now, my iMac offers more lighting than this dingy 60 watt bulb. I'm thinking about adding a flood light in the computer room and maybe installing a ceiling fan with a light in the living room for more lighting to fill it out. Please help.
