Consider the area

If you have a north-facing room without direct sunlight, it will generally require a little more thought. The obvious choice for this kind of lighting is strategically placed ambient table lamps or floor lamps. But the most efficient way to add ambient light to a living room is with ceiling lighting. A flush or a semi-flush ceiling light centred in the room will cast diffused light evenly throughout the space, or for those with a larger than average ceiling, a pendant centred in the middle of the room.  For living rooms, try subtle lighting sources like wall lights and floor lamps for those awkward empty corners.  Depending on a room’s layout, accent lights could be used to highlight art, and table lamps could be placed beside seating to add another layer of light.

Think about Energy Efficiency

Although once known mainly for indicator and traffic lights, LEDs in white light, general illumination applications are today’s most energy-efficient and rapidly-developing lighting technology. LEDs use up to 90% less energy and last up to 25 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs.

Types of Living Room Lighting


Ceiling Lights

Ceiling lights are the main light source of your sitting room area.  They are available as a flush light were the fitting is attached flush to the ceiling, semi flush where the light sits close to,  but not flush with the ceiling.  Pendants are lights which hang down to your desired length.  This can be individual or as a chandelier which consists of more than one light.


Spots & Downlights

Spotlights can be used in areas of interest when used on a track with more than one or used individually as a surface mounted.  These types offer more directional lighting and can be turned on a 160 degree angle. Down lights can come in various colour temperatures, when bought as LED,  some having all three built in for your convenience enabling to choose your preferred look from warm white, cool white to day white.  Other downlights which take a bulb cannot.  Downlights can be placed to cover the full ceiling area to be used as a main lighting source or to light up darker areas. 


Wall Lights

Wall lights bring extra lighting to darker areas such as recessed walls.  They provide a focal point and deliver ambient lighting.  Wall light are available individually or paired many available as part of a collection to tie in with the rest of your sitting room fittings.
