Living room lighting: which chandeliers to choose
In the living room, one generally relaxes by reading a book, watching a film on TV or having dinner with friends: it is an environment to which a lot of attention is paid when furnishing it, but one must not neglect the lighting aspect because the lights can make the living room more warm and welcoming.
Ceiling chandeliers and living room ceiling lights
If the living room is spacious, its focal point is the chandelier that illuminates the furniture but also the people who live in the room, usually positioned right in the center where there are sofas or the dining table. Better to opt for a ceiling light if the living room is small, to give more depth to the room.
What to choose depending on the light you want to get in the living room
There are many types of modern chandeliers to best illuminate the living room: they are suspended and positioned in the center of the room, in Nordic-Scandinavian style, in metal, glass or plexiglass. In any case, it must be remembered that, before choosing the chandelier, the height of the ceilings and the size of the room must be taken into account: if the former are too low or the living room is small, it is better to opt for a modern ceiling lamp.
What style to choose for living room lighting?
The style of living room lighting also depends a lot on the type of light sources you choose: in addition to the chandelier and ceiling lights, there are LED strips that give a contemporary touch to the room. Then here are the spotlights and wall sconces that give a classic touch to the environment. Lamps must never be missing, whether they are table lamps near armchairs and sofas, or floor lamps, with long arms that illuminate the relaxation area or the table present.
Pendant lamps for living room
Suspension lamps are distinguished from chandeliers by their size, being smaller and usually with a more contemporary design, so much so that they are considered true furnishing elements. They can be placed above the dining table in the living room or above the relaxation area, in order to illuminate sofas and guests.
How to place spotlights in the living room?
The spotlights can be recessed and/or adjustable: they are placed where you want to illuminate precise and particular points with a beam of light, with a view to that emotional lighting. They are used to enhance a bookcase, a green corner or a wall full of paintings and the scenographic effect is guaranteed.
