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.
- 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.
If you decide on mission furniture, then wooden flooring would look good, with plain or lightly patterned rugs to absorb sound and prevent that reverberation or booming you can get with all wood flooring and plain walls. Curtains or drapes, wallpaper and rugs absorb sound waves, so that you can't hear everyone talking anywhere in the house.
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.
There are many other accent pieces that can be use to complement your living room furniture, and also add to the look of the room, or even its theme if you prefer to have themed rooms. Ignoring the obvious Egyptian statues, African masks and Native American artifacts for the more obvious themes, those preferring more modern themes can use chess sets and tables, figurines, lamps, trays and boxes to accentuate the decor of their living rooms.
In most cases this room is on the main level of a home and sees a lot of activity. Room designs can be geared toward a host of activities. There are plans where the living room is incorporated into an open floor plan and in some cases it is an entirely separate room that has a door and is largely separate from the rest of the living space.
