Knowing what you’ll do there can help you choose the best, most beautiful and energy-efficient fixtures. Let Kichler Lighting help you plan your living room lighting scheme.

LIGHTING LESSONS FOR YOUR LIVING ROOM

LAYER LIGHT A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY
LAYER LIGHT A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY

Layering light is a staple of lighting design. You begin with ambient lighting, add a few accents and then top it off with task lighting. In your living room, how you layer depends on how you use the room. If you’re going to be curled up watching your favorite shows and movies, you’ll want less glare and lower light.

Sconces on either side of the fireplace. A light above the painting or sculpture, and maybe on both sides of it. Your living room is your living room. Nobody else’s. That’s why it matters to take the time to light it right and draw attention to what you love the most in your home.

Decorative light brings a special warmth into a living room. You can cut the glare and soften the shadows. That side table or end table that you adore? Give it the attention it deserves with a pendant or pendant cluster. Need to clear the air while shedding some light? An indoor ceiling fan might just do the trick.

Mini chandeliers over a loveseat, a side table or a desk. Mini pendants or small sconces with articulating arms over a reading chair. You can create cozy nooks and special gathering spots with lighting – don’t dismiss those corners of your great room – let lighting lead the way to greatness!

Cabinet Lighting for Living Rooms

Reading, watching TV, scrapbooking, playing games…consider all of the “tasks” that happen in your living room, and light accordingly. Emphasize and spotlight entertainment centers with LED tape lighting or hard strip lighting behind a  flat-screen TV hanging on the wall.
