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.
When lighting a large space, floor lamps are quire popular. Typically, they are placed in the corners of the room and often serve as decorative pieces as well. Floor lamps are commonly found in entry ways, dining rooms and bedrooms. This fixture provides light while enhancing your décor; you can't go wrong with that.
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.
