Choosing the Right Lighting for Your Living Room: The direction in which your windows face can help to decide on the type of lighting you need in your living room. North facing tends to offer a cooler lights, and south typically warmer. East and west facing rooms vary throughout the day. Therefore, it’s worth thinking about how much time you will spend in your living room and when. If you get a lot of sunlight during the day, perhaps some ambient low lighting would be ideal to relax at night. In turn, a room which receives a lot of shade may require various options to maintain a lovely light throughout the day.
Creating a Living Room Lighting Plan: Whether you’re starting from scratch or planning to enhance an existing space, a little forward planning can make all the difference when it comes to creating the perfect ambience. It helps to make a note of oft-used areas in the room, any items of display and the time of day that you typically spend there. This, and a small hand-drawn map of your room can help to plan the perfect lighting for your space—especially if you plan to highlight certain areas with spotlights.
Living Room Lighting Tips: Accent lighting such as wall flush lights, table lamps and dimmer lights are great tools for creating ambience. This is ideal for calmer occasions such as relaxing or entertaining. Task lighting, such as desk lamps, may be more practical when a brighter, more focused light is needed such as when focusing on a certain job or task. Don’t forget to make the most of your natural light—a well positioned mirror can do wonders to reflect sunshine around the living room too.
