What lighting should I choose for my living room?
Please give best suggestions
Definitely, absolutely, fully - whatever lights you choose - make sure they are warm white (3000K). Keep away from cool white and daylight white!
I like sconces. They are making a huge comeback and look quite artistic and classic, and also functionally they don't use up space like floor lamps and table lamps.
I would go with a really stunning pendants that is a show-off piece ... makes a great talk point, and gives superb mood. Make sure it is dimmable.
Ensure you use layering in your living room, for example a pendant light together with a couple of table lamps.
If you have intersting furniture in your living room, use spotlights to focus light on them, this creates excellent mood and atmosphere.
If you have an older type house, put in a chandelier.
Definitely use warm white light circa 3000K.
For minimalist lighting, use a grid of downlights (gimbles are great!) making sure they are not too close together, and dimmable.
I would recommend that every living room has at least 3 lights, for example a pendant, a table lamp and some candles.
A large oversize wooden pendant can look stunning. I have one myself and guests love it.
The only thing you need to remember is to install a dimmer 😉 everything else is subservient to that!
Consider putting table lamps with coloured shades - gives quite an interesting effect.
Ensure your living room has lots of shadows. I know this is counter intuitive but creates excellent mood.
Nothing beats candles in large candlesticks!
Make sure you use as much natural light as possible.
