When selecting lamps for the living room, pick a fixtures that are good to look at whether the light is on or off. The lamps need to be placed where they will not obstruct the view. The height of most living room lamps is 26-34 inches tall. To determine the height without looking up, you may sit on a chair near the table where the lamp is and check if the shade bottom must not be higher than your eye level. Choose a sturdy-based lamp with adequate weight so it won't easily be knocked off with accidental bumps. Light sources in a room must be positioned 10 feet from one another.
Accents & Highlighting- Draw attention to a fireplace with overhead recessed lighting or track lighting fixtures. Alternatively, wall sconces on either side of the mantel will both emphasize the fireplace and offer more lighting for the entire room. An up light situated behind the object can highlight pedestals, figurines or floor plants. Add additional layers with multi-tiered hanging lamps or wall/ceiling wash lights. Accent lights placed in alcoves, corners or closed in spaces will accentuate a specific area or piece and give the room a larger appearance.
Generally, many households tend to have an insufficient number of light fittings to completely satisfy the lighting requirements of the room. A pendant and a few lamps, floor and table lamps, for example, are generally not enough to do justice to living rooms which also tend to be quite large in comparison to other rooms in the house.
Managing lights in living room is not only placing lamps on corners of its room, but you must to notice what condition you want. If the living room style is modern futuristic, it can be applied by adding different light colors. For example mix yellow-green light or white-blue with the room theme.
A floor lamp with an up light can also be placed in the corner of the room to highlight a ceiling detail. If you have painting or pictures on the walls, use spotlights to focus on them.
