If you have a nice plant in the room, try placing a small lamp near it and watch how the leaves cast interesting shadows on the walls. Lampshades too can add to the mood as they cast soft and diffused light. Sometimes the unique shape and patterns on the lamps and their shades elevate the lamps themselves from a functional purpose to an aesthetic statement.
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.
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.
Remember also that when it comes to lighting, the different types of light fixtures are quite versatile and can adapt to suit different lighting requirements. For instance, using adjustable lights means that you can highlight different objects by simply repositioning the light source from the lamp. Similarly, decorative table lamps can be used not only as an ornamental object but can provide background lighting for performing tasks as well as being a light source for other objects displayed on the table.
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.
