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.
A few years back, homes and apartments were not built with ceiling lights. Many of these homes that did not feature ceiling lights had light switches that connected to an electrical outlet. During this time, floor and table lamps became a very common item in stores because they were needed to light homes. Depending on the type of light needed and décor of the room, some common types are: floor, table, ceiling, hanging, and desk lamps.
The first and most important layer of lighting in the living room is natural lighting, found through windows and skylights in this space. Mirrors are the best way to enhance small sources of natural light as long as they are balanced with other accessories in order to keep the energy positive in the living room. Natural lighting is your most important source of lighting, and it should be the primary, even sole, source of daytime lighting in the living room if the room receives an abundance of natural light.
