25 Practical Living Room Lights Ideas
Old outdated light fixtures which look ancient or plain ugly? Not enough light to do anything? You shouldn’t have to suffer in the dark! Get some new and bold lighting to get enough light and add a chic touch to the space. When deciding how to decorate a living room with better lighting, there are different types of living room light fixtures and lamps designed for different purposes. Here are some functional ideas that may be useful for choosing.
In a large room, a single overhead fixture may not be enough. In most cases, pot lights are a good solution, but if recessed lighting isn’t for you there is another possibility. Consider hanging multiple fixtures throughout the room, which will create several layers of light – you may use all of them at a time or just some. They key to making this look work is to stick with fairly simple fixtures that have clean silhouettes, and to hang them on a grid rather than in random spots throughout the ceiling.

Highlight the height of your ceilings with a chandelier or a pendant lamp – it’s the most popular idea. Choose a piece that matches your room style and accent it with a ceiling medallion if you want. When it comes to living room lighting ideas, don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Lighting around the perimeter of a ceiling can provide accent light as well a unique detail not common to most living rooms. Such accent light accentuates the architectural details of the ceiling, but it adds an aura of elegance to this sophisticated space.
