Lights to Use in the Living Room
There are mainly two types of lights that work best in your living room space:
Chandeliers: The most classic lighting fixture, chandelier, fills up the void of the room. Chandelier, because of its multi-point illumination, provides a soft sparkling effect to the room.
Sconces: These lighting fixtures are attached to the walls, typically in pairs. Sconces are usually used to define a room’s focal point.
Lighting Ideas for the Living Room
To balance the lighting, highlight specifics, and eliminate shadows from the corners, create layers of light in your living room. Below are ideas on using a combination of chandeliers, lamps, sconces to transform your living space:
Task Lighting: For living rooms that are much in use, task lighting is what you should opt. As the focus is on the reading area, the central source of light and built-in lights on the ceiling direct illuminance on the focal point.
From Corbett Lighting’s extensive collection, you could choose the Geisha, Vamp, or Vertigo sconces with Amadeus, Cesto, or Crescendo chandeliers.
Ambient Lighting: This provides an overall illuminated area with balanced lighting – a central source of light complemented by sconces, wall-mounted lanterns, recessed or track lights.
Corbett lighting offers a number of product options here – Modernist, Chime, or Meteor chandeliers matched with sconces like Pipe Dream, Regatta, or Tivoli.
Accent Lighting: It is perfect if you want to add drama to the room by creating visual interest. Focus light of a sconce or wall fixture on a plant, painting, or any other prized possession. Add three times the light to the focal point as the lights surrounding it.
Match the Flirt, Graffiti, Harlow, or Fathom central pieces with fixtures like Femme Fatale, Inertia, Mambo, or Romeo; from lightings by Corbett.
Some Handy Tips
Take note of the following when choosing lighting fixtures for your home:
1) Pay attention to the size proportion of the fixture in the room.
2) Create continuity in your home by using same/similar fixtures in adjoining rooms.
3) Make sure your lights are placed as such that they do not create too much shadow.
