The living room can be a family gathering space or an intimate gathering place. This room usually receives a lot of sunlight and can serve as an ideal spot for reading in the evening or catching up with friends. Depending on your needs, you may want to add a modern chandelier to the ceiling or accent fixtures above the mantel. The family room often requires the most lighting. Its vaulted ceiling and large windows can let in a lot of natural light.
Ambient ceiling lights should provide plenty of light to prevent eye strain. Be sure to buy proper light bulbs in the correct color temperature and lumens. Office Depot’s staff can recommend light bulbs for different purposes. If you need task lighting in an area, you should use a desk lamp or a table or floor lamp. You can choose from a variety of light bulbs that can achieve the desired effect. If you need accent lighting, consider adding a floor or table lamp.
