The living area is the core of the house. Proper finishing should be done to make it impressive. The finishing should not always be on wall painting, floor treatment and accessories but also creativity with the lighting system. If your living area is large, create large windows for the room to be fresh and airy. This also allows natural light flow inside the house leaving only artificial lighting for night. This makes you save on power bills.
Choosing the lighting system to install in your Living area
The type of lighting system to install in your living area depends on your choice because they are many. Without a perfect light you cannot read, watch TV, play video games or relax comfortably. Pick the right wattage and size depending on how big your living area is. At the center of your living room install the overhead lighting. Also a bigger crystal chandelier could do. For reading, create a floor lamp or table lamp for more light.
Getting the location right for your living room light
When your living room is complete, take your time to fix the right light at appropriate positions. Begin with the center, if your room is large and it is a place where the family members gather, a common light that captures the whole room should be placed. This should be floor lamps with halogen bulbs. Place table lights at each corner to light up the sofas and armchairs. Do not put any light near the TV but if you really need one then put one that gives a soft column. For the reading area, place a limelight. Take note that the lights that you put do not hurt the eye.
It is good to study the environment of the living room bearing in mind the type of furniture you have. The bright lights exude energy and the soft lights bring comfort. So to bring comfort create floor lights, candle lights and desk lanterns of impressive shades bearing in mind that lighting brings some beautiful impact in the living room.
