4 Living Room Lighting Ideas
The Living Room. The heart of the home and social activities, and the place to rest and relax after a long day. But how do you keep it feeling calm and cosy? It’s all in the lighting. Here are four ideas to help you get it right.
1. The right vibes
While bedrooms and dining rooms have special considerations when it comes to lighting, the Living Room is your place to Shine! Want to experiment with larger brighter floor lamps, or add stylish chandelier? The living room allows for different types of lighting, depending on what vibes you want. Need a mood light? Try a low table lamp. Want to brighten things up? Opt for a sprawling Ceiling lamp.
2. More space to shine
Lacking surface space? Go for wall lamps. Place one on either side of your sofa – they’ll perfectly frame your seating aream and cast just the right amount of light. Tip: make sure any other lamps in your room have the same bulbs or wattage to keep the light intensity feeling balanced.
3. Spread it out
The best thing about table lamps? You can place them (almost) everywhere, they have a small footprint, and you don’t need to screw them to the wall or ceiling. Plus, they can be easily swapped out or added in, depending on your needs. Mix different styles in the same colors to create a cohesive but curated look.
4. Adjust yourself
In the mood for some light reading? Opt for an angled design like the Mouille Wall Lamp. Adjustable lamps concentrate the light on a certain spot to give your eyes the right amount of light to read comfortably, without making the rest of the room too bright.
