Apartment Lighting Good lighting can completely transform a room, and its source doesn’t necessarily need to be a hardwired ceiling fixture. Invest in lamps to place on end tables, nightstands, and side tables. Position floor lamps to illuminate dark corners and hang plug-in wall sconces in hallways or above sofas.
