For that corner of the room that is always too dark, consider adding track lighting. If you have an existing ceiling light, it is a snap to replace it with track lights. I like to run track lights down the center of the ceiling, and then parallel to the walls, out from the walls about two feet. You can add a light fixture anywhere along the track. You don't even have to use the same fixtures throughout the room. Mix and match to suit your mood.
