Living Room Lamps- Having a variety of lamps around the room is an easy way to create a sit-down, relaxed atmosphere. When you're ready to kick back for the evening, switch off overhead lights and turn on these living room lamps for some calm time. Floor and table lamps are also great because they offer a portable lighting solution, which means you can move them to a different area if more light is needed for a specific task.
It's better to use downlight lamp for bright up whole spaces. Put some lamps at ceiling with proportional distance between one another, so all of general activity places can be reached by light.
Living room is also often used to put some arts or your family photo at its wall. These decorative things are good to dramatize the room atmosphere. Painting or family picture can be lightened by spotlight every frames. Spotlight can be applied for sculpture or another interesting art. If the art object is high enough, directing the light upper so it looks dramatic. With fit and flexible lighting in your living room, your family will fall more enjoyable.
That being said, remember that overhead lighting is great so long as it is accompanied by additional task lighting such as wall sconces or reading lamps. This is to avoid casting shadows, creating glare, and causing eyestrain from insufficient lighting at eye level.
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.
