Living Room / March 1, 2018 / Leah Venegas
Planning a light scheme for the living room is a crucial part of designing the living room. A living room should typically have three types of lighting; an ambient light scheme, focus lights for wall art and curios and task lights in the form of table lamps. While the light itself enhances the room, sometimes the source of this light need not be seen. Cove lighting is a style of ambient lighting that has become very popular. This style of lighting is muted but gives the living room a stylish edge. When it comes to picking a table lamp, there are a number of styles to choose amongst. While a lamp base is ornamental, the lamp shade has a more functional purpose and its style determines the amount and direction of light emitted.
A quick way to transform a dull living room is to lay wooden flooring over the existing one. The warmth of the wood as the natural light reflects off it will completely alter the ambiance of the space. Nowadays, it’s possible to install certain types of wood floors within a day as they come with an interlocking mechanism that clicks in place.
