In living rooms, where comfort and ambience are key considerations, emphasize accent and task lighting, with a minimum of general lighting. Start with accent lighting over bookshelves, special artwork, a fireplace or entertainment system. Add table, floor or recessed lights for reading areas. Complete the room with a close-to-ceiling fixture for general lighting, or an ENERGY STAR qualified ceiling fan/light for air circulation.
