Main Living Room Lighting Options- The main light fixture should offer a large amount of light. This is usually an overhead fixture, though some designers are moving away from this traditional solution. In addition to being the primary light source, this fixture should add aesthetic appeal to the room because it will be a focal point. Choose something inviting, bold, or creative according to your room decor and taste, but let it be something inherently decorative. Many homeowners enjoy installing chandeliers or pendant and hanging fixtures in the living and sitting room for this reason.
Kept spotlessly clean, the living room location permitted the homemaker to entertain guests without their getting far into the dwelling (where messes lurked). A home maker might comfortably engage in polite and interesting conversation, and make an impression on guests in the living room. That location, the most formal, coat-and-tie room in the house, exuded sophistication as well as cleanliness and it wordlessly identified the family as rising in social status (or it did not). But, housing changed in the U.S. in the 1970's when people wanted to express themselves, to have more choice, and they cared less about what guests thought of them.
Another easy way to revive your space is to paint the walls a new shade. A fresh coat of paint will spruce up any space. By changing the color, your furnishings and the room in return will achieve a new look. For example, a light colored couch would pop against a dark wall. The accent color in your upholstery fabric can be brought out by a new wall shade. You can highlight an accent color present in the living room, or tie the room to a color scheme seen throughout the home.
