When choosing spotlights and down lights, consider the beam angle of the bulb and the height of the ceiling. Also, always be consistent with the colors of the bulbs in the same area. As mixing LEDs with different Kelvin ratings can create a really unflattering appearance.
When placing ceiling lights, ensure that they are spaced evenly and at a distance of two feet from all four sides. In a large living room, this is particularly necessary. While recessed lighting does help create a mood, it is not great as ambient light (light that allows you to move around comfortably in a space). Also, it is not great in a space with high ceilings and will just waste energy. In smaller rooms, an upward-facing chandelier with a dimmer, along with other portable lamps and accent lights will provide enough ambient lighting.
Quick Tip: Before placing lights in task areas, use a simple table lamp at different angles and locations to get an idea of how comfortable you are with the placement of the light.
Quick Tip: In a room with a low or a high ceiling, use an arc-lamp instead of a chandelier as the central lighting for your living room.
