Usually, home lighting consists of base lighting, functional lighting, and atmospheric lighting, therefore when it comes to the living room it is no different as this is where we spend most of our time. So how do you combine base, functional and atmospheric lighting when it comes to your living room?
Accurately placing your main lighting
Base lighting is the main lighting in your living room for best use allowing the entire room to be illuminated. This base lighting ensures that it lights up space and it is usually connected to the main switch and the first to be switched on when you walk into your living room.
The main light is usually on the ceiling and can be ceiling lamp, pendant lamp or ceiling spotlights. Check out our Rondoo Up spotlights, perfect as base lighting and can be used in other areas of your home if you want to have a theme throughout your home!
Functional lighting is essential
Any lighting used in any room has a purpose or function, in a living room, the main function for lighting is for everyday use from work related to simply reading a book. It is ideal to have a table lamp on a side table or floor lamp with a reading arm or adjustable in the corner, take a look at our Floor Lamp Retro.
