Your living room is a multi-functional area, often acting as an entertainment space, game room, or spot to do homework. It’s where the family gathers to debrief at the end of the day, or relax and watch a favorite movie. With so much time spent in the living room, it’s important that the lighting be ideal for whatever purpose the space is serving at the moment. At The House of Lights in Melbourne, we can help you find new ceiling light fixtures, accent lights, and other options for your living room.

The ideal lighting design for a living room or family room should perfectly blend general, accent, and task lighting. The room serves a variety of purposes, so there should be a variety of lights in the room. For general lighting, ceiling fixtures such as a contemporary chandelier or decorative light will illuminate the majority of the room, and placing the fixture on a dimmer will allow you to control the exact level of light being produced. Wall sconces can add the perfect accent lighting, and they’re ideal around a fireplace or a mounted flat screen TV. Again, you’ll want to add a dimmer switch so that you can lower the lights when it’s time to watch your family’s favorite movie. For task lighting, a floor lamp next to a comfortable chair makes the perfect reading or homework spot when the kids are working on their latest assignments.

The House of Lights loves helping homeowners make the most of their living room lighting design. Whether you need new ceiling fixtures, lamps, or sconces, you’ll find them in our store!
