Good lighting enables activity, enhances color, and – most importantly – gives a room a sense of warmth and life. Light fixtures also bring fun and fashion to a space. Use lighting in practical and provocative ways to alter the mood in your living room.
One of the keys to creating a comfortable and flexible room is to layer the lighting. Use a mix of ambient, task, and accent lighting to delineate different zones. Establish a plan that allows you to adjust the room’s illumination levels gradually from bright to dim to suit your needs.
