Proper lighting is essential for any home. It is important to maintain balance between personality and the functionality of the room when it comes to lighting the living room. You can transform the entire atmosphere of your living room with the proper use of lighting. Remember that lighting not only has aesthetic and mood enhancing values, but plays an important functional role in lighting up those important “task” areas in the living room. Well positioned and easily controlled lighting makes reading easier, while subtly designed lighting makes rooms more livable and relaxing to spend time in.
The living room is an important room where many people spend their a lot of leisure time with families or friends. If your living room is large with different zones such as a dining area, home office or a lounging area, it is important that each zone has adequate lighting without overpowering other areas. While choosing the lighting, one should consider the atmosphere, one is looking to create and choose the bulbs and lamps accordingly.
It is best to buy energy bulbs that can be dimmed easily to create an atmosphere of warmth and change the mood of the room whenever required. Work areas need to be properly lit, and photos and artwork on the walls can be lit with spotlights to bring attention to them.
People spend hours choosing the perfect sofa or the paint color for their living room, but they forget the importance of lighting. For a good living room lighting, it is important to use different kind of lights and at different levels that work together to create the perfect ambiance. The lighting should not only allow you to carry on with your daily lives, but also accommodate different events and parties that you might host. A bad lighting design can make your living room look old fashioned and unattractive. For these reasons, proper use of lighting is very important to bring your entire living space together.
