Light up your Living Room

Living Room Lighting

You have to admit a nice lamp does make all the difference to your living room, whether it's floor lamps, ceiling lighting or table lamps, choosing the right lighting will make all the difference.

Create that special area of the room that's just perfect for all your activities, such as reading a book, playing games or enjoying those peaceful moments, or merely showing off those prize possessions with a few spotlights strategically placed over a nice picture or ornament, no matter what! just remember that there's more to lighting up your living room than placing a few lamps on a table!

This classy and modern floor lamp goes great with any contemporary or transitional furnishings, I opted for a nice simple and elegant living room floor lamp as opposed to those such as the 5 arm or 5 arc lamps, of which are really not receiving such good reviews.

I purchased mine around 3 years ago and it's still going strong, whether you want the entire living room to light up, or have that dim warm feeling, this one does both at the simple turn of a switch, truly a majestic floor lamp at a fairly reasonable price!

A Touch of Class for the Living Room

Finding the right ceiling fixture for your living room can be a headache! I know, I went through the process when moving into my apartment. Overhead lighting can make a statement, whether you have a large room, small room or just low ceilings, adding new lights is a way to impress your visitors while adding fresh style and class to your home.

Bedside Companions!

Some Bedroom Lighting Ideas!

If your anything like me, I use my bedroom for more than just sleeping, I know Feng shui experts will probably disagree with me but, until I can afford to move to a bigger place I must make do with what I can. So now we have that out of the way and you now know that I don't just use my bedroom for just sleeping in, It's pretty essential that I choose my bedroom lights wisely and to do that I consider all the activities that take place in this little bedroom of mine!

Understanding that the darker the bedroom is the better, however, think about all that you do! your lighting in this area can range from bold to dimmed to dramatic, so think about it before you go out spending a lot of money on lighting of which may not meet your actual needs.

Check the size of your bedroom, and where electrical outlets reside. Consider the height of ceiling, if you have the computer up and running or read books then your looking at direct lighting.

I certainly recommend a purchase!

 

Avoid lights directly above the bed, they are just going to annoy you when under the covers reading etc. Don't go placing large number of lights in the same location, too many is not nice and will give you that glaring feeling!

Bedside lamps are a must for book lovers, and the more control you have over the light the better, get one with a dimmer switch, make sure you cannot see the bulb directly and while your at it, why not add a swivel arm to the lamps, certainly gives you a lot more flexibility! Apart from that, think about your partner, there again, purchase one of the ilumi bulbs and I think all your problems will be resolved ;)

Your Checklist for Bedroom Lighting - Get the Right Light!

  • Is my lighting bright enough so I can see what I am doing?
  • Is there adequate lighting in my closets?
  • Is there a table lamp on each side of the bed?
  • What about your ceiling light! Do you actually have one?
  • Is the light bright enough to establish the color of my clothing?
  • Can I control and dim my light sources?
  • And for the ladies - Is there adequate lighting for putting on makeup?
