1. Find the light source

A usual mistake is trying to light up the whole all the room with only one point of light! Instead, try to use multiple points and play with the shades of them. According to David Rockwell, “the best-lit rooms have layers of light that blend well together,”. “Choose your light source, and then determine how to defuse it” he added.

The right lampshade can make all the difference. We suggest you bring low-wattage bulb to the store to try it with different shades.

2. Always have in mind the function of the space

There are multiple functions for a living room like watching television, read a book, be with the family and friends. At this area, you can choose a combination of floor lamps, table lamps and suspension lamps. You always should have in mind that the lighting should be part of the decor of the house.

If you have a big living room, you can split the spaces by zones and have an individual reading corner, for example. Here you should opt for a light for that function. Try to play around with a floor lamp with a smooth and relax lighting.
