Lighting around the perimeter of a ceiling can provide accent light as well a unique detail not common to most living rooms. Not only does the accent light in this room from Creative West Architects accentuate the architectural details of the ceiling, but it adds an aura of elegance to this sophisticated space. When it comes to living room lighting ideas, don’t be afraid to think outside the box.
Do your homework. With all the new light bulbs, transitioning from incandescent to LEDs, figure how just how much light you need. Make sure you follow a manufacturer’s recommended wattages—especially the upper limits. Overamping can result in overheating, possibly shattering glass shades, for example.
No ceiling lights? No problem! You can still create a central light source with an arc floor lamp. The arcs on these types of lamps are generally fairly high, ensuring that no one will bump their heard when walking underneath, but considered placement is still important. Keep in mind that these lamps are quite modern and work best in contemporary settings.
When it comes to overhead (ambient) lighting, it’s always a great idea to use two different kinds. In this elegant living room by Su Hodges Interiors, pot lights provide the majority of light (which is spread across the ceiling), while a transitional hanging fixture emphasizes the seating area in the center of the room.
