Main Living Room Lighting Options- The main light fixture should offer a large amount of light. This is usually an overhead fixture, though some designers are moving away from this traditional solution. In addition to being the primary light source, this fixture should add aesthetic appeal to the room because it will be a focal point. Choose something inviting, bold, or creative according to your room decor and taste, but let it be something inherently decorative. Many homeowners enjoy installing chandeliers or pendant and hanging fixtures in the living and sitting room for this reason.
If your living room is also where your children occasionally do their homework, then supplement the lamps with a ceiling fixture. If the kids do their assignments on the coffee table then a fixture directly above the table is a good idea as the light will also be in the center of your seating area and won't look out of place. But don't forget to use dimmers, particularly on the ceiling lights, as you can control the brightness of the light and thus control the ambiance in the room.
If you have a TV in the room, make sure there's no glare on the screen from any of the lights. This can be controlled by placing a table or desk lamp next to or behind the TV.
