Correctly choose the living room lights!
Choosing the right lighting is a very responsible task. You can use it to complete the design and make it look harmonious, or on the contrary – simply spoil everything with it!
The first thing to consider is the width of the surface and the height of the ceiling. The living room lighting has a representative purpose. It must therefore be both practical and aesthetically perfect. In terms of dimensions, this means that the living room lighting must neither be too big nor too small.

The level of lighting
With the standard ceiling heights, which are around 2.80 m, the chandelier must not hang too low, because this way its lamps shine in the eyes of those present. The lowest part of the chandelier must not hang lower than 2, 00 m above the ground.

But do we have a living room with a higher ceiling? So those count those who reach a height of more than 4 m. The hanging massive fans are the most appropriate in this case. Depending on whether you prefer a more elaborate or minimalist solution, you should opt for chandeliers with a long cable or for those with many small lamps.
Use chic accents!
Lighting directly on the ceiling
Maybe your living room ceiling is too low? Then choose one of the most modern variants, in which artistic lamps are attached directly to the ceiling and not hang from it.
Consider the idea of using suitable ceiling lights
More and more living rooms have unusual dimensions. They often have an irregular, unusual floor plan with lots of niches, nooks and crannies, and other tricky spots.

In this case, you should prefer the combination of a lamp in the middle and lots of additional lighting. In this case, the task of the central lighting would be to provide adequate ambient light. In addition, he should decorate the room through his appearance. The gloomy corners and naturally secluded areas then have to be brightened up with additional lighting. The strength of the additional lights must be adapted to the functions of the areas. If you turn on several lamps at the same time, they should work together. In terms of design, too, the different lamps would have to match each other.

Compositions of different lights
You can make combinations of several lights and thus achieve a decoration with high artistic value. Choose lamps with the same design and arrange them in different groups. You can playfully deal with the height of the attachment and the figures that make them up.

Style and color scheme
With regard to the style and the color design, the luminaire has to fit perfectly into the room design. If you want to introduce a modern solution in a more conservative context, then the best thing to do is to follow the rules of eclecticism. This means that you should look for common properties in the most varied of elements. That would be, for example, textures, colors, lines. If you stick to this simple rule, you can show a lot of creativity and still achieve a consistent appearance.

Finally, we would like to encourage you to look for bright colors for the lights. You are current and more universal than some of you would believe. In a neutrally furnished ambience, they would be an accent. If you want to have more color in the room anyway, then let the lamps in bright colors correspond well with each other.
We hope you enjoy choosing the perfect living room lighting!
