PLACEMENT OF LAMPS: This is one of the simplest answers. CORNERS. Place lamps in corners. They illuminate the room and reflect off of the walls. Recessed lighting should be lighting used for the middle of the room while lamps should be used in corners, with additional accent lighting in the middle.

TYPES OF BULBS: As traditional incandescent bulbs are slowly being phased out three new choices are available: Energy saving incandescents, CFL’s, and LED’s. Each of these has its positives. Energy saving incandescents have the ability to work with dimmers, the two types cannot. Both the CFL’s and LED save about 75% of energy that a regular incandescent bulb would use, and last at least 10X longer. Although initially more expensive, these models will start to pay for themselves after 9 months of usage.

Used properly and in moderation, lighting can be one of the most useful tools, an important asset to have in your bachelor pad. You can change the mood of the room with just a flip of the switch. Buying nice and tasteful lamps is always a good investment, as a lamp will out live most any piece of furniture that you own.
