Living Room Lighting Fixtures
Floor lamps and arc lamps are popular light fixtures for living rooms. They bring light to the room and are aesthetically pleasing. Torchiere lamps can accentuate contemporary or modern design while table lamps can aid in completing tasks such as reading or writing. Tiffany lamps can be used for task lighting or decorative lighting; place them on a shelf to bring a focal point and produce inward light in your living room.
Recessed ceiling lights give living rooms a sleek and modern look. Pendants work to complement the recessed lights and hang over specific areas of the living room like a coffee table. Chandeliers or mini-chandeliers hung next to furniture cast a welcoming pool of light and practically invite guests to sit down and enjoy the room. Use track lighting for general lighting or accent lighting to illuminate objects that are architectural details, artwork or furniture. Flush mount, semi-flush lighting and ceiling fans can also be used as another layer of light.
Sconces and swing arm lights add a decorative touch to living rooms and are an alternative to lamps because they take up less space. Try placing a swing arm light over bookshelves to light up your personal library. Under cabinet lighting can be installed in entertainment console nooks that hold keepsakes or mementos in your living room. And, for highlighting pictures and artwork on the wall, use picture lighting.
About Living Room
Living Room Lighting needs to be versatile; living rooms, whether formal or informal, typically have a series of places to sit, read, relax, and entertain. Different zones are either consciously or subconsciously created, which gives each part of the room its own identity while still retaining the overall family room cozy feel. In order to accommodate different activities and moods, the lighting scheme should be adjustable. For a well-lit room use a central control panel that is capable of dimming or layer the lighting scheme in the living room.
