Ceiling light fixtures are great for starters, but when it comes to setting a specific ambiance, they do not quite do the trick. They leave unwanted dark corners and unflattering shades on decorations. Table fixtures with shades are still popular, but overall, they are quite impractical. A floor lamp is easier to clean, has a better throw of light, and casts the most flattering shadows for the room.
Another very useful item for any home is a coat rack. If you want to create something original you can make one yourself using a tree branch or a piece of driftwood. You can either mount it on a wall or suspend it from the ceiling or any other structure. Add hooks directly onto the rack or put hangers on it to protect its surface. Make sure it’s big enough to accommodate your clothes and accessories.
