Hammer Heads carpenter Carmen De La Paz says, "Another mistake that homeowners will often make is not taking into consideration the lighting in their home. The lighting in your home can completely change the colors, the feeling, the ambiance."
Designed to Sell's Lisa LaPorta adds, "There are really three main types of lighting: general lighting, task lighting and drama or accent lighting. You need a combination to have a really good end design."
A pharmacy floor lamp with an oil-rubbed bronze finish and transitional style were placed by each sofa, to provide supplemental lighting for the room. The floor lamps free up floor space that would be required for side tables with table lamps.
