Living Room. Tuesday , May 30th , 2017 - 00:16:15 AM
When choosing living furniture, most people will choose the furniture they like irrespective of the décor or the general furnishings of the room. They may see a lovely sofa with chairs to match, or a sectional unit that they can switch around as the mood takes them. However, few take the whole look of the room into consideration, or take a holistic view of furnishing their living room.
That being said, remember that overhead lighting is great so long as it is accompanied by additional task lighting such as wall sconces or reading lamps. This is to avoid casting shadows, creating glare, and causing eyestrain from insufficient lighting at eye level.
Accents & Highlighting- Draw attention to a fireplace with overhead recessed lighting or track lighting fixtures. Alternatively, wall sconces on either side of the mantel will both emphasize the fireplace and offer more lighting for the entire room. An up light situated behind the object can highlight pedestals, figurines or floor plants. Add additional layers with multi-tiered hanging lamps or wall/ceiling wash lights. Accent lights placed in alcoves, corners or closed in spaces will accentuate a specific area or piece and give the room a larger appearance.
