My living room has five bright windows that let in some wonderful afternoon sun. However, at night, my lighting options are less than ideal. Let's examine them one by one, shall we?
Though I like the circulation provided by my ceiling fan, it's far from attractive. There's no dimmer switch for the lights, so my options are either operating room or darkness. For better or worse, I'm stuck with this as a renter.
Another IKEA lamp, this one leftover from a former roommate. I actually don't mind this one, though it doesn't provide much light on its own.
All my lighting seems to be in the front part of the living room, making it unbalanced. Maybe adding a floor lamp behind the TV (on the entrance wall of the room) and end tables with table lamps to either side of the sofa will even it out.
Do you have any lighting woes?
