Even though the living room has no fixtures, you can make it look stylish and elegant with affordable modern lighting. The houses built in 1950s and 1970s usually are not equipped with fixtures. At that time, the people were interested using the ceiling medallion. It will be unsafe and uncomfortable for us to access the living room in darkness. If there is no fixture on the ceiling, you can use another lighting solution to make the living room bright and shining. Use the creative ideas to build the unique design for the lighting in the living room.
You can install new ceiling fixture. Choose the easiest one to avoid spending a lot of money. One of the best examples is the recessed lighting. Some people often call this lighting as can or pot lighting. You just have to hire an experienced electrician to install this affordable modern lighting. You can install several recessed lamps to create starry look on the ceiling. Don’t forget to install a dimmer switch if you want to control the intensity light in the room. Another idea for the living room lighting is the broad wash floor lamp. You can fit it with halogen or incandescent lamp. To avoid any glare on the ceiling, don’t forget to set the right lampshade.
You can select it based on the living room interior design. If you have traditional living room, pick the lampshade in frilly or ruffled design. It can feature the rich colors such as red, violet or emerald green. If the floor lamp is for modern living room, it should be sleek and simple. Pick the wattage of the lamp less than 100 watt to avoid any fire hazard due to the tremendous head. The next affordable lamp to choose is the cove lighting. It is installed below the ceiling line. You can have it in LED or even florescent tube lighting. To avoid any high intensity of light, you can pick the warm spectrum of cove lighting. The last affordable modern lighting to pick is the switched lamp. It is the common lamp in the living room. You can incorporate it with a remote control if you want to make it dim or bright.
