Are you lighting your living room the right way?
From time to time, we like to talk about one of the most important subjects when it comes to home decor: lighting. We feel like sometimes it gets forgotten, and people don’t pay enough attention to the lamps they choose for their homes. So, today we are sharing a few living room lighting tips that you will definitely wish you had read sonner!
Create focal points
One of the biggest mistakes people make when decorating their living rooms is to either put lamps everywhere, or not install enough lighting. Our advice is to create focal points in your living room with the help of a pendant lamp or two, and even reading lamps. The juxtaposition of bright and dark will give your living room a comfortable and inviting look.

Get multi directional lamps
If you want to get light to reach several points in your living room without overpowering it, our tip is to get a ceiling or floor lamp that has rotative lamp shades. This will allow you to play with your living room lighting and place it wherever you think it’s best.

Use lamps as a decorative feature
Another great thing about being smart with your light choices is that, when made right, you can also use your lamps as decorative features. This works especially well when talking about wall fixtures, but if you find a stunning accent floor or table lamp, just go for it!
