Florianne Amarante. Lights. January 13th, 2018.
In spite of variations in shape size and volume of living rooms depending upon design of each one thing is common for all kind of living rooms and that's their need to have an inviting nature.
Create layers of light. You need to create light layers that bounce illumination throughout the room in order to eliminate any shadows that might be in the corners. You should use a chandelier to provide overall light and visual interest.
Finally on the day that you are entertaining guests use only your lamps and spotlights and perhaps light a few candles in the room to create added intimacy. The ceiling light should remain switched off.
It's best if you plan the decor of your living room with the lighting in mind. The most important fixture for creating the right mood is the table lamp. So place table lamps in strategic places like the side tables on either side of your sofa or next to the armchair where you like to sit and read. You can also place table lamps on a sideboard a wet bar or a chest. Table lamps act like accent lights lighting up only their surrounding areas. They create interest in the room because there are pockets of light and shadow and the different areas in the room are lit selectively. If your room only had a ceiling light the entire room would be uniformly and perhaps quite brightly lit creating an uninviting cold feel.
