Lighting is one of the essential elements of a room and can impact how everything else looks. That’s why it’s important to plan your lighting design early and consider all the sources of light you’ll need. You should design the room with lighting in mind. Having your architect draw the lighting in is a great method. If you think of lighting last, you’ve already damaged your possibility to be right. It should be part and parcel of the room, because lighting is an integral part of the room’s look.

Mix

A successful lighting design combines a number of light sources at different levels of the room. Add layers of light from a number of types of fixtures that can be used together or separately for a flexible space.

Find the Perfect Pair

Table lamps are perfect when you need a little extra light once the sun goes down. And they’re even better in pairs. Set matching table lamps on side tables or on either end of a console to give the space a sense of balance and symmetry.

Sculptural Sconces

Wall lights or sconces are a great way to add interest to an empty wall or frame the sofa or a work of art. They’re also ideal for small spaces and help free up floor or table space. Try a pair of colorful or sculptural sconces that will draw the eye and illuminate the space, or go for a solo light for a minimalist look.

Add aCenterpiece

Whether you go for a romantic chandelier or a modern pendant, a striking light fixture can complete a living room. Use the piece to brighten the seating area and create a focal point. Install a dimmer switch to be able to switch up the atmosphere and set the mood.

Let Your Art Shine

Your art collection deserves to be displayed with pride. There are a number of options for lighting art, including picture lights, track lighting, wall washers, and ceiling-mounted accent lights. You can also install picture lights on bookcases to highlight framed pieces, objects, and collections.

Choose a Lamp with Reach

If you don't have a ceiling fixture, consider floor lamp that curves over the space. The piece will add light from above without the need to call an electrician.

Illuminate a Corner

A lonely armchair instantly becomes a cozy reading nook when you add a floor lamp. Take advantage of an empty corner and create a calm spot that’s the perfect for curling up with a bestseller.
