Put Your Living Room in the Best Light

Put Your Living Room in the Best Light

Tuesday, Feb 6, 2018

At Star Furniture we help our customers create living room spaces that reflect their own sense of style using our 5 Star Selection of furniture brands, designs and colors.  Even the perfect living room furniture, however, needs proper lighting to enhance the look.  There are 3 types of lighting…ambient, accent and task…and using all these in a layered effect ensures the elimination of dark corners and distracting shadows.  Here is a quick guide to putting it all together.

Ambient Light

This is the general, main source of light in the room.  During daylight hours natural light is usually the primary source.  At night you need to rely on a choice or combination of fixtures including:

  • Track lights
  • Recessed ceiling lights
  • Pendant lights
  • Chandeliers
  • Ceiling fans with lights

The best system for you will depend on your needs and the configuration of the room.

Accent Light

When you have architectural features, artwork or other objects you want to highlight accent light does the trick.  Choose from:

  • Cabinet lighting
  • LED’s
  • Wall scones

Your most interesting features will pop with the right light.

Task light

As the name implies, these are the lights you need to get things done without straining your eyes.  Reading, working on a laptop or desktop computer, crafting…these are all tasks that need the right light.  Floor and table lamps are common solutions.  You have many style options here, so pick the ones that complement the overall look of the room.
