Lighting Ideas for Living Room

Living room is cozy place for relaxation for whole family. This multipurpose space is used for watching TV, taking a nap, eating, reading or socializing with family and friends. For those reasons when you design your living room, you should think of it as the hub of your domestic life. When it comes to fixed lighting, you should not exaggerate by placing it, because one day you might decide to change the arrangement of the furniture, so it will no longer be fully functional. Here are some useful tips for you, hopefully to use it.

With so many products on the market, you can choose your fittings to blend in with your overall scheme, whether you go for the period look, such asTiffany-style lamps, or minimalist hi-tech chrome track. You may also use table lamps dotted around the outside edges of the room on shelves and tables. They’ll radiate light inwards, making the room feel spacious yet cosy. If your house already has a ceiling rose, it might look a bit strange without a light. Make a feature of it by hanging a spectacular decorative light and boost light levels elsewhere.

For romance or entertaining, use a real fire and candlelight supplemented by wall lights dimmed to their lowest setting. Position a freestanding uplighter or standard lamp behind the sofa. Do adapt your central overhead light so that it doesn’t cast unflattering shadows. Either extend its flex – a simple job – and screw a cup hook into the ceiling so you can clip it out of the way, or put in low-voltage light to detract attention from it.

Mount wall lights beside features that won’t be moving – in alcoves, for example, or on either side of a fireplace. With an extra budget, commission a lighting designer to install a digital lighting display, which changes colour in timed sequences or in response to music.
