Creating the perfect environment for your living room is manageable with proper lighting. Many family gatherings and important occasions occur in the living room, which is why lighting plays such an important role. The lighting presents perhaps the most demanding of design challenges. The need to understand your family's way of life is as important as understanding the architectural space. Outside of its effect on the ability to perform different tasks, Lighting can be used to invoke different moods such as calm or excitement and must be sympathetically integrated into your particular lifestyle.
The key technique to help us achieve that prefect balance and atmosphere in the living room is to provide multiple sources of light and by layering them. Points of interest such as artwork, should be illuminated with low voltage accent lighting, which are aimed at the perimeter of the room or low voltage track rail or cable lighting which provide a lot of flexibility. Task areas which include: reading, wet bars, or hobby tables require adequate illumination that is provided by floor lamps, spot lamps, monopoint lights, recessed lighting, cable and track lighting or pendant lighting which can all help accentuate these task areas.
Other sources of light that can be used not only for their lighting output but also as decoration are: chandeliers, pendant lights, wall sconces, cable, rail and track lighting systems and up lighting of indoor plants which brings drama and interest to the space. Maintaining balanced lighting in the room is very important and we achieve that by reducing the contrast between the different parts of the room and by using dimmer switches and scene control units. These help achieve the ability to create unlimited lighting situations that provide the exact type of lighting combinations for any personal or social need. After illuminating the living room correctly, we can truly notice a big change in the space. The room comes to live! Colors are brighter, art is focused and accentuated, our visual performance increases and the most important: we feel happier and better.
