Old outdated lights that look old or just ugly? Not enough light to do something? You shouldn’t have to suffer in the dark! Get some new and bold lighting to get enough light and add a chic touch to the room. When deciding how to decorate a living room with better lighting, there are different types of living room lights and lamps designed for different purposes. Here are some functional ideas that can help you choose.
In a large room, a single ceiling light may not be enough. In most cases, pot lights are a good solution, but if recessed lighting isn’t for you, there is another option. Consider hanging multiple lights throughout the room, creating multiple layers of light. You can use them all at the same time or just a few. The key to making this look work is to stick to relatively simple light fixtures with clean silhouettes and hang them on a grille instead of random spots on the ceiling.
Elevate the height of your ceilings with a chandelier or pendant lamp – this is the most popular idea. Choose a piece that suits your room style and accent it with a ceiling medallion if you want. When it comes to lighting ideas for living rooms, don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Lighting around the perimeter of a ceiling can provide accent light as well as a unique detail that is not common in most living spaces. Such accent lighting emphasizes the architectural details of the ceiling, but gives this refined space an aura of elegance.
Sculptural wall lamps
Make a bold statement with one-of-a-kind wall lights. Modern wall lights are adjustable so that the user can change the size and direction of the light. More importantly, they represent a unique, sculptural element that gives the room a modern tone. You can go for different colors and finishes, but the most popular options are black and metallic like brass, copper or gold to add a shiny, glamorous touch to the room.
