Living Room Lighting Guide

Homeowners spend a lot of time choosing the color of a sofa or paint for their living room wall, but often forget the importance of proper lighting. In a place where you watch TV, read books, play games and entertain guests, lighting plays an important role in the function and appearance of a room.


Height and Living Space

First, you must figure out how the space is used and perhaps the time of the day spent there. Again, it is of great essence to note how vast the area is and the total height of the ceiling. If you have a low ceiling, large ceiling fixtures such as chandeliers will make your living space appear smaller and cluttered. In contrast, smaller ceiling fixtures may get lost in larger rooms with tall ceilings. Therefore, ceiling height and the size of the living space are important factors to consider when choosing a ceiling light fixture.





Selected Lighting Type And Ceiling Lamp Type

Living Room Lighting Guide

Different types of ceiling lamps have different functions and create different lighting types. It's important to consider the function of the ceiling lamp you choose for your area of life, based on the ideal atmosphere you want to create.

There are three types of lighting: task, environment and key lighting. Generally speaking, ceiling lights will provide ambient light because they provide extensive lighting in an area and can be controlled by dimmers. In the lighting design of the living room, you can use the layer to supplement the environmental lighting. This can be achieved by using lamps and floor lamps to provide tasks and focus lighting.



Create Levels of Lighting

While a ceiling light is likely to form the focus of your scheme, don’t overlook the rest of the space. Think vertically and split the room into 3 levels, then consider how best to light each layer. By planning like this, you avoid daunting yourself with a daunting space. Think in layers and tackle one at a time.





Plan Around a Central Feature

So now that you’ve chosen the ultimate in show-stopping central lighting fixtures, be sure to plan the rest of the scheme around it. You might choose more reserved lighting at lower levels to balance the space. Also, position furniture around the central feature light, make sure it takes centre stage.

While light fixtures like the aforementioned chandelier require calling an electrician, floor lamps can be plugged into the outlets you already have, making them an ideal option for renters and homeowners who don't want to drill into drywall. Place a floor lamp in a corner strategically within arm's reach of your couch for convenience.
