A Larger Room Illusion 
Natural light will immediately make a room appear larger, but if your room doesn’t have windows, or has fairly small windows, there are other things you can do. Using floor lamps and desk lamps and table lamps will help brighten your rooms and create the illusion of a larger room.

Lighten The Mood
You will often find people saying how they feel happier during the bright sunny days of summer, but feel more down and lethargic during the dark nights of winter. Lighting has a big effect on your mood and behaviour. Having a lot of lighting makes for a more joyful feeling. Adding lots of light with lamps can create a happier atmosphere.



Directional Lighting
The lighting in a room either provides illumination for the entirety of the room, or it highlights very specific elements. Light fixtures with adjustable necks and lamps can be pointed at specific elements, such as a wall painting, the vase of flowers on an entryway table or the bar top or kitchen island. Floor lamps can be used to point lighting at the floors or ceilings to create vertical beams of light as opposed to an overall glow from central light fixtures hanging from a ceiling.



Functionality
One major role of lighting in the interior setting is functionality. Wall lights add length and size, visually, as well as light the way. Consider the style of lighting you want to ensure you get the best directional or luminescent type for the setting. Look into table lamps for desks and other work areas where functionality is more important than overall room illumination.
