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.
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.
You could purchase originals or prints of modern art abstract or sketches in black and white and marry these with lighting consisting of modern shades over brushed or polished aluminum lamps - pr stainless steel if your prefer.
Carefully placed mirrors not only offer a unique approach to home decor, but can also make a smaller living room look larger. By arranging the angles of reflection of a number of mirrors, you can not only make the best of the more interesting components of your living room décor, but also make the room appear much large than it is. You can use lighting along with mirrors to enhance this effect.
Not all furniture stores offer an online room planner, which is why those that do tend to be popular. By using a living room planner you can avoid becoming Victorian and retain your space and roominess while making sure that you purchase living room furniture that fits into the area you have available.
Many such services enable you to make a scale drawing of your floor space, and then add scale thumbnails of your choice of furniture. Others give you the floor diagram, into which you can sketch the furniture according to its provided dimensions. Whichever system you use, you will be able to see exactly how your sectional can be arranged to also accommodate your choice of sofa and armchairs.
