Using lighting to create the perfect living room

By May 22, 2020Electrical

In recent weeks, we have explored the ways lighting can bring out the best in your bedroom. Now, we are taking a look at how the right lighting creates a stunning atmosphere in your living room.

The living room is an essential part of your home; the place where family comes together to enjoy each other’s company and the place where you will spend time with guests. So, how can you use different lighting to make your living room feel perfect? 


Utilise multiple lighting types

Incorporating various types of light within a single room can create a sense of depth and texture. We recommend using at least one of each of the following lighting types:

Ceiling lights: It can be as simple as a light fitting in the middle of the ceiling or as sophisticated as a dangling chandelier; whatever suits your style. 

Floor lights: Floor lights in the form of tall standing lamps or an accent light-up can overcome gravity and give new warmth and style to the room.

Table lights: Mid-level lights are not only beautiful but can be functional too. Try a table lamp, desk lamp, or even a low-hanging pendant-style light fixture.

Ambient, task and accent lighting 

In our last blog post, took a look at ambient, task and accent lighting and the ways they can be combined to enhance the look and feel of any space. Try incorporating all types of light into your living room to achieve a living space which is as aesthetically pleasing as it is practical. Read our blog post about ambient, task and accent lighting to find out more. 

Feature lighting

While functionality is obviously the most important when it comes to lighting, aesthetics are very important when it comes to the special spaces in your home. Lighting can function as a piece of art or feature of any room.

This may be in the form of specialised lighting or stylish lighting fixtures, but this is entirely up to you.
