Living Room Lighting Ideas

Living room lighting ideas are different from bedroom or office lighting. You want to create a relaxing atmosphere in your living room, so you must consider general, task, and accent lighting when choosing your fixtures like wall sconces, chandeliers and pendant lights:

General Lighting 

This type of light should be used for its ability to create an overall feeling of comfort in the space by illuminating all areas evenly without focusing on any one particular space. It is best used in rooms like a living room where people spend their time watching TV or reading books because it provides ample illumination without being too harsh on their eyes and does not require any additional attention from you. This type of natural light includes ceiling lights and wall lights. 


Task Lighting

Task lights are installed over surfaces like desks or tables so that users can see what they are doing better than if there were no lights (which would mean using only ambient light). If possible, opt for two different types: one fixture with directional beams aimed downward to not distract from anything else nearby; another positioned upward toward both sides so that other areas are not left dark either." Task lighting is low hanging light and is purposely for reading, sewing, and other hobbies, including computers, work station, or console games. 


Accent Lighting

Accent lamps can be used to highlight specific items or a particular piece of furniture, artwork, or architectural feature in your living room. An example is the corner where an antique clock sits or an area rug in front of the sofa. You can also use it to draw attention to an elegant sofa or chair in the corner of your living room. It can also be used with ambient lighting (a general brightness level) so they do not look out of place with other lighting fixtures in your home.


Mood Lighting

Mood lamps are a type of lighting that is used to create a certain mood or atmosphere through an ambience by providing illumination that is soft and warm (such as candlelight), excellent (like blue LEDs), or even romantic (pink tones). They are ideal for creating a relaxing environment conducive to reading or conversation with family members after everyone leaves work. Generally speaking, mood lighting softens the contrast between general and focused light and helps create a cosy atmosphere. If you want to add romance or a comfortable atmosphere to your living room, try installing dimmer switches on the lamps around the room. That will allow you to adjust the light coming from each lamp to suit whatever activity you plan to do. 


Recessed Lighting

Recessed lighting is a great way to add ambient light to a room, primarily as an accent light. You can use recessed lighting to illuminate artwork or highlight a focal point in the room. It can also be used as a decorative element, which adds interest to an otherwise plain ceiling. Finally, this type of lighting can highlight architectural features like vaulted ceilings and arches (often found in living rooms).


Track Lighting

Track lighting is an excellent option for general and task lighting but can also be used for accent and mood lighting. Track lights are easy to install, so they are perfect if you want to add extra light to your living room without spending hours figuring out how to wire an outlet. You can use track lighting as general illumination throughout your living room or in certain areas, for example, on either side of a fireplace mantel or above an entertainment centre.
