There are many ways to decorate or improve upon your living room. You can get some new sofa sets, get a new coffee table, buy a new rug or just rearrange your furniture. But there is one thing you can do that will make a significant different to your living room, that will not cost a lot of money. That one thing is to get a nice looking floor lamp. Getting a lamp will improve the lighting in your room, but it will become more noticeable during the night when your house starts to get dark.
A few years back, homes and apartments were not built with ceiling lights. Many of these homes that did not feature ceiling lights had light switches that connected to an electrical outlet. During this time, floor and table lamps became a very common item in stores because they were needed to light homes. Depending on the type of light needed and décor of the room, some common types are: floor, table, ceiling, hanging, and desk lamps.
Multiple layers of light make a living room feel more open and spacious; layered lighting adds energy and sufficient illumination any time of the day, making the room more functional and welcoming to family and visitors alike. Designing a living room with layers of light is possible once you understand what makes up each layer and how to combine them. You can use all layers or pick the one that is most important to your overall design scheme for the living room.
As a rough guide, having a couple of table lamps, four to six recessed downlighters, a picture light to highlight an ornamental object or painting, some sort of concealed lighting inside a bookshelf or other unit, as well as a floor lamp - are considered a good quantity of light fittings which can be used to properly light up your living room. As you can see, you do not need to have all these different types of lighting and lamps all on at the same time. Rather, for effect, you would have a few lights on depending on what sort of mood you wanted to create and what activities were taking place.
Wall Sconces- Wall sconces provide great ambient lighting, especially larger or multiple arm scones. As mentioned above, sconces and a large overhead fixture are the perfect combination.
