Lighting in the living room

We usually spend the biggest amount of your time at home in the living room. This is the room, where the household masters can rest, watch television, or have guests over. That’s why it should be well lit. Daylight should be utilized to its full potential using French windows and appropriately selected colours, which would help make the room seem brighter. Synthetic lighting can be shared, local, or accenting. Shared lighting comes from a common pendant light fitting, such as the chandelier, or from equally spread light sources on the ceiling, with its help, all activities can be carried out – games, reading, visits.

Accenting lighting draws the attention to a specific object – the fire-place, the television set, and everything else, which the home masters may want to be a centre piece. For this purpose, bracket lamps, spot lights, or built in lighting over the object in question can be used. Special lighting is targeted at places, used for studying, writing, or playing games. For this purpose, desk lamps or lampions can be used. Incandescent light bulbs are very suitable, as they create a beautiful sparkle and help make the atmosphere unique.
