1. What type of lighting is best for the living room?
The living room is the area in our houses that hosts a wide range of activities. Depending on the occasion, it might be where we relax after a long day, entertain ourselves with a good book, welcome our friends and family or even eat an occasional meal. Lets see how lighting can pull together this multi-use space for any occasion.
Firstly, consider the activities that happen in your living room- and you are already halfway there!
Mix it up
A successful lighting design combines a number of light sources at different levels of the room. Adding layers of light, from different types of fixtures that can be used together or separately for a flexible space.
Add a Centerpiece
Whether you go for a classic chandelier or a modern pendant, a striking light fixture can complete a living room. Use the piece to brighten the seating area and create a focal point. We recommend installing a dimmer switch to ensure you get maximum use out of the main fixture, by changing light levels according to the mood of the moment.
Choose a lamp with reach
Floor lamps are fantastic additions and, here’s the best bit, easily movable to bring light to any area of the room. Depending on the style of the lamp, you can create arcs of light over a sofa, highlighting just one area of the room at a time, provide extra illumination for craftwork or reading, or allow different members of the household to tweak the lighting to their preference in the room- all without the need to call an electrician!
Ilite recommends the following basics to bring your living room come to life
Why should you get a floor lamp for your living room? Two words. Dark. Corners.
Floor lamps are very practical, not only illuminating a specific space, but they can even make a room feel bigger and add depth. Plus, they are perfect if you are in the mood to enjoy a quiet moment with a book. Ilite has a great selection to help you match your lamp with your main lighting, with different styles to choose from to compliment your decor, from the furniture to the curtains.
A large floor lamp adds personality to the room and can be used as the lighting ‘statement piece’.. If you own a smaller room consider floor lamps with slim bases that won’t take up too much space, but don’t be afraid of the size of the lamp, we say Buy Big and Go Home!
Living Room Ceiling Lights
If you are blessed with high ceilings don’t think twice and make a statement with a lighting sculpture or a dramatic lamp. Or go all out with one of our fantastic chandeliers that packs a punch of style, glamour and personality into every room! Just remember that overhead lights primary function is to provide style and ambience and they’re not always an effective lighting for all corners of the room. This is why we always recommend pairing a main overhead light with supporting layers of lighting, like lamps or recessed lighting in dark corners, so help lift all areas of the room.
Looking at the colour scheme, natural light available and desired feel of your space, consider the colour of light you want for your living room. A larger room can benefit from soft or warm white bulbs for example, to create a more welcoming and relaxing cosiness.. Cool, white light is energising, and great for open-plan spaces to help spread out the light and enhance the contemporary feel of the space.
Again, you can use the additional lighting to good effect here by using different bulbs, to easily create a different feel - for example a bright overhead chandelier can be switched off to enjoy the ambiance of soft bulb lamps in the evening.
At ilite we provide LED bulbs in all our products, to ensure you are getting the best choice in tone, range and safety. They are also extremely economic compared to other light bulbs, so you can go home knowing your lighting is not only friendly on your purse, but our planet too!
