Upgrade Your Living Room Lighting

In an apartment, the living room is most likely going to be your most used space. It will be where you relax after a long day of work, the spot where you play games with friends, it could be where you eat your meals, and it might have a comfortable couch for you to nestle into as you binge your favorite TV shows. Because your living room is going to be multi-purpose, the lighting in it will have to be extremely flexible.

the types of lighting

In lighting design for your apartment, there are three main types of light that can work together to create the best and most comfortable environment:

  • Ambient
  • Accent
  • Task

Ambient Light

This will be your main fixture and light source in the room. In an apartment, you won’t have much control over your main ambient fixture since it will already be affixed to the ceiling of each room. However, if you don’t like the light it gives off you could swap out the bulbs for a more comfortable light temperature or simply choose not to use it at all and opt to create your own ambient light with varying fixtures and lights you utilize throughout the space.

Accent Light

The accent lights for your living room will be what creates your overall feeling for the room. While they can provide some ambient light if there are enough of them, they are meant more to create a mood for the room. In an apartment, having several lamps throughout the area may be the best way to go. This will allow you to highlight certain areas depending on what you are doing. A couple desk lamps can make the perfect setting for a movie, or having some floor lamps in the corners can make a comfortable setting to sit and chat with friends.

Task Light

Task lighting is a brighter light that will allow you to accomplish specific projects or tasks. Task lighting in your living room may include a bright reading light for early mornings or late evenings. You could also invest in a light that can clamp onto a table so you can easily see a puzzle, board game, or homework.
