Chances are that your living room is the biggest room in your home. It is the place where you want to impress your guests with your taste and style. You also want them to relax in a warm and cosy environment. The easiest way to create the right mood is by using the right lighting in the room.
Wall light fixtures such as sconces and wall lamps are often overlooked when lighting purchases are made. Why is this? Some may be hesitant of the installation factor - wall fixtures need to be mounted and may need minor electrical work as well. With floor and table lamps one need simply plop the light down plug it in and voila - let there be light. So yes there is a little extra work or installation cost (for you non do-it-yourselfers) as opposed to other lighting options. But there are also some major advantages wall lighting has over standard lamps. Floor and table space for one. Everyone wants more room for family photos trinkets and even plants on their end tables and wall lighting is a great way to get this space while still adequately lighting a room. Second with floor and table lamps come unsightly and often dangerous (especially if you have kids running around) electrical cords. Properly installed wall lights are hard-wired and all wiring is hidden behind your walls giving your room an ultra-clean look. Let's take a look at a few popular wall lighting options shall we.
Paper lanterns. They are inexpensive and unobtrusive. They cast a soft even and omnidirectional light that is not only pleasing but also very effective. You should hang the lights individually or in groups from the ceiling. The good side with the lights is that they provide a mobile-like effect regardless of whether the bulbs are on or not.
The next thing to do is to carefully select the bulbs. Unlike the kitchen or bathroom the color of the light in the living room should be warm and yellow not stark white so choose the light bulbs accordingly. CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lights) and LEDs are more energy-efficient than conventional incandescent bulbs and can result in significant savings in the long run.
