Each room in our homes have very specific purposes, but when it comes to the living room, this is often one of the most multi-functional areas of the home. Here we share some great lighting advice to help you brighten this space and bring much-needed illumination to the living room, thanks to our friends from Illumina.
The living room is the one space where we can relax in front of the TV, gather with family and friends, enjoy snacks, meals, laughter and fellowship with those closest to us. We can curl up here and read a good book, enjoy a cuppa or play games with our kids. It really is a versatile space and that’s why it is important to provide ample lighting to make this a pleasant room for the entire family.
Here are four ways to add illumination and versatility to your living room:
1. Table Lamps
Create a beautiful ambience in your living room with carefully positioned table lamps for added lighting in this space. Great for mood lighting and task lighting – providing light for simple tasks like reading your favourite magazine in a corner of the living room. Create an elegant look with a pair of matching table lamps on end tables or create interest with bold feature table lamps scattered throughout the room.
2. Feature hanging lights
Nothing makes a better statement than an oversized and elegant chandelier or hanging light as a feature in your living room. Take for example this group of gorgeous woven chandeliers (featured above) as a magical addition to any living room. Go bold and group a selection of lights or use a single fixture for a sophisticated and opulent feel.
3. Floor lamps
Floor lamps are great for added illumination in the living room. These are great for adding light to a corner of the room that would otherwise remain unilluminated. Where table surfaces are not available, a simple floor lamp is a great choice. The benefit – floor lamps are mobile and you can play around with these until you find the right spot!
4. Wall SconcesBring stylish lighting to your home with wall sconces in strategic areas around the living room. These are great for added lighting and can help create an elegant look paired on either side of an artwork or mirror!
