Living Room. Thursday , November 01st , 2018 - 03:05:19 AM
Modern homes tend to be bright and airy, and while you don't have to be exactly minimalist in your choice of living room furniture, you will not want to lose that sense of space by over-furnishing. It is very easy to do this, particularly when you consider the wide range of living room furniture available today. Let's have a brief look at the range of furniture you can use in your lounge.
- Frequent headaches can be an indication of insufficient lighting. As you will be using your eyes a lot in the living room (between reading, watching TV and hobbying), ensure that there is the proper amount of light so as to avoid eyestrain.
Your living room need not be furnished and decorated to a specific historical period, but should at least appear to be matched and perhaps follow a certain theme in terms of color or period. For example, Amish furniture looks best in a plainly decorated room, and would look out of place with lush drapes, heavily patterned carpets or event brightly painted walls.
Accents & Highlighting- Draw attention to a fireplace with overhead recessed lighting or track lighting fixtures. Alternatively, wall sconces on either side of the mantel will both emphasize the fireplace and offer more lighting for the entire room. An up light situated behind the object can highlight pedestals, figurines or floor plants. Add additional layers with multi-tiered hanging lamps or wall/ceiling wash lights. Accent lights placed in alcoves, corners or closed in spaces will accentuate a specific area or piece and give the room a larger appearance.
Task Lighting- Use table lamps or free standing lamps for working on individual projects such as a puzzle, game, paper, crocheting or other hobby. Ideally, living room lamps should be set slightly behind and to the left or right of the area being illuminated so the light can come from behind the person's shoulder and pour light on towards the project at hand. Use smaller track lighting fixtures or other low-level lighting agents for computers and television viewing. This avoids glare and allows the screen its proper image display.
A living room can be described in many different terms. For some people it is a simple seating area or lounge area. Some people would consider their living room as the main living space in their home, where guests and family gather to watch TV, read and talk.
