First and most importantly, open your blinds, draw the curtains, and let the natural light in! Natural light is better for your health than artificial light. Natural light is also much brighter. No matter how good the lighting product is-nothing can compete with the sun. Yes, you will still have to get lighting fixtures for the nighttime, but you can save a lot of money on electricity if you keep artificial lights off when they are not needed. If you‘re living room is like many other homes, you may not have a lot of potential for natural light even with the blinds open. In these cases, make sure you invest in some quality lighting products that will brighten your room during both the day and night.
Have a Look at Your Room - Having prepared a digital or a drawn layout plan, you should have a look at your living room as it is and mark the zones you have defined there. Decide on the items you will use to mark the areas. These can include lighting accessories, curtains, wallpaper combinations, furnishings, rugs or carpets and what not. The choice depends upon the living room decor available in your home.
Arguably, the best advice that one can be given when it comes to decorating the home is take your time before your purchase your living room furniture. The living room is a very important part of the house. It is the family main where the family gets to sit, bond and create everlasting memories. It is the same room where visitors are hosted. It is the first room that welcomes each and every person that walks into the room. It is important to note that the living room creates a certain impression about the entire home. This simply means that it is important that time is taken to ensure that the it sends the exact correct message about the entire home.
It‘s particularly important to layer the lighting in a living room. Balance ambient, task, and accent lighting throughout the room. This way, all areas of the room are receiving the kind of light they need. Ambient lights will provide an overall main light for the room. Task lights illuminate a specific area such as a desk or a bookcase. Accent lights illuminate key elements of the room such as a beautiful architectural design or a work of art. Try to avoid using recessed downlights as your only form of lighting. Instead of downlights, use lights that will bounce off the ceiling, and therefore provide your space with better ambient lighting.
