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.
Main Living Room Lighting Options- The main light fixture should offer a large amount of light. This is usually an overhead fixture, though some designers are moving away from this traditional solution. In addition to being the primary light source, this fixture should add aesthetic appeal to the room because it will be a focal point. Choose something inviting, bold, or creative according to your room decor and taste, but let it be something inherently decorative. Many homeowners enjoy installing chandeliers or pendant and hanging fixtures in the living and sitting room for this reason.
Amazingly most people starting out have no idea how they would like their living room design to turn out. In fact, most people buy a home on the looks of the kitchen, and the bathroom according to popular consensus. So what does this say about living room design? It says that people are not thinking about it enough, and thus find themselves without a viable living room decorating plan at move in time.
