Your living room can take on many different roles, it can be used for watching television, reading, listening to music, relaxing and chatting to friends and family as well as being used for hobbies and various pastimes such as playing chess or knitting. Therefore the lighting in this room needs to be sufficient in order to accommodate such a wide variety of different uses. This is easily achieved by using lighting that is both flexible in quantity and quality. And, instead of having just one mediocre light bulb hanging from the centre of the room - you can go wild and give your imagination a run for its money by incorporating downlighters, recessed lighting, decorative table lamps, reading lamps, wall lights, maybe picture lights as well to highlight an interesting object, and of course your pendant lighting or chandeliers.
No matter what type of lighting you choose, you should also consider sensor lighting. This will give your modern kitchen a new flair that will have the lights turn on automatically as you or guests walk into the kitchen. This way you can use any type of bulbs and save on the energy you consume as the lights will go off when no motion is detected.
You want to use wall sconce lighting to help create an atmosphere but at the same time allow the space to be used properly. You will usually have a combination of all three types of lighting in the dining room. General lighting will light up the room allowing people to move around without knocking over furniture. A ceiling mounted pendant light will illuminate the table.
A couple minutes later we had a step stool, a pair of gloves, and a huge supply of light bulbs at our command. I proceeded to change out all the 75watt incandescent R30 flood light bulbs with 50watt halogen PAR 20 spotlights. By exchanging the incandescent floods with Halogen spots I was able to get more intense light where it was needed. As a result, I was able to create more contrast which gave my client is room a - voila! - dynamic dramatic look!
