Good lighting is important in all living spaces in your home. It does more than provide light for reading, hanging out, and other activities. Exceptional lighting has the power to make your home feel comfortable, inviting, elegant, and functional. It also sets the tone that you want to create, from soft and romantic to bright and modern. Whether you want to add some task-oriented illumination or create a decorative statement, lighting is a necessary part of your space.
The living space is undoubtedly the most versatile area in a house. However, it can be a daunting task to change the look and feel of a space with lighting. Lighting is incredibly important in your living space because it is usually where the family spends most of their time. The key is to strike the right balance, but this can be complicated. But don’t worry – It’s possible to transform your room and set your living space apart with exceptional lighting from Ashley HomeStore!
When it comes to proper lighting, the important question to ask yourself is “What goes on in this room?” Do you and your family watch TV in the living area? Is there a lot of reading or studying done in the room? These activities require different levels of lighting. There are three types of lighting:
The best functional lighting setup uses all three types of lighting. Combining them creates layers that set the room for various activities and contributes to an inviting space. It probably sounds complicated but trust us – it’s not! The trick is to know when to combine them. You want to create warm pools of light by layering more than one type of lamp. A restrained approach works best!
