The living room is basically the jewel of the house. Family and friends who make an entry, first are likely to comment about the look of the living room. In reality the type of lights that you have installed will spell the charm. Basically, there are three types of lighting – ambient, task, and accent. Ambient light provides a room with overall illumination, task lighting directs light to certain work zones, and accent lights highlight specific objects.
A mix of different types of lighting, placed at different points in the room, is essential for creating a proper living room lighting experience. When it comes to overhead lighting, it’s always a great idea to use two different kinds spot lights provide the majority of light which can be spread across the ceiling, while a hanging fixture will emphasise the seating area in the center of the room. You can still create a central light source with an arc floor lamp.
The arcs on these types of lamps are generally fairly high, ensuring that you or any other family member will not bump their head when walking underneath. Here again the placement plays a key role. Also, you can nclude accent lights in built-in shelving as a way to highlight special objects and accessories.
When it comes to living room lighting ideas, don’t be afraid to think outside the box.
