Living room lighting lends itself to being open to many different lighting sources and your mix of indoor light fixtures and fittings should accommodate a wide spectrum of moods and activities.
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.
Next, what color do you want to get for your lamp? This will depend on the color scheme of your living room. Make sure that the design of the lamp is something that matches with your furniture to ensure that it will not stick out like a sore thumb. The height of the lamp is also very important, so that it will be able to blend in seamlessly at a corner. There are also different kind of light colors, so get one that brings a nice warm hue to your room.
Candles offer a flickering glow that is perfectly suited for romantic interludes or soft, peaceful light that adds cozy comfort. Scented candles add a pleasant fragrance that can be matched to season or mood.
Overhead lighting. This includes ceiling fans, overhead lighting fixtures, and all similar options that are ceiling-mounted. There are literally thousands of different types of overhead lighting to create the perfect look, depending on your sense of style and the room's décor. A dimmer switch is an important option for controlling the level of light and desired ambiance.
