This can be the new hardwood floors in your living area, the new what not in your den, or your newly tiled walkways and driveways. Either way, with some preparation recessed lighting can be a great lighting choice for any area of your home. Lighting is very important for your home. In addition to helping you to see the entire room, it also sets the mood of the room. Experts say that light can be used in emphasizing unique architectural designs. To help you out, here are lighting ideas for your living room:
Adding sports table lamps or touch lamps to end tables provide a sense of class and personality, to your home lighting décor. They provide illuminating light and decorative lighting. Give them a try. Recessed lighting is meant to enhance a living space without taking up room meant for other decorations. You wont find light fixtures hanging down from the ceiling or poking out from the wall, but instead the lighting will peek out from within the ceiling and walls with a pleasant glow. This lighting effect takes the focus off the light fixtures themselves and puts it on the room space by creating an ambient base layer of light upon which to build the rooms decor.
Try to draw the space together. You can accomplish this feat by highlighting a few focal points with either picture lights to highlight artwork or paintings or place a spotlight over a mirror or piece of artwork you have hanging over your fireplace. You can also consider lighting decorative curtains if you have them in the living room. For a reading light in this room, consider a sports lamp such as a floor-standing lamp specifically designed for reading.
A Few More Living Room Lighting Options & Tips: For homes with size limitations, recessed lighting will take up less space and give the area a roomier feel. By day, use as much natural lighting as possible. It is the best quality, and its free! If you have large windows, maximize them by using sheer drapes or glazed windowpanes to diffuse the light. Frequent headaches can be an indication of insufficient lighting. As you will be using your eyes a lot in the living room (between reading, watching TV and hobbying), ensure that there is the proper amount of light so as to avoid eyestrain.
