Types of living room lamps
1. Recessed luminaires for living room
The built-in luminaires are usually installed in gypsum or PVC linings. They are great for minimalist and modern style decorations because they help make the environment look cleaner. This type of luminaire also does not interfere with the rest of the decoration, and can be used in any decorative style.
The advantage of this type of luminaire is that it can be fixed or directional. In the latter case, the details of decoration and architecture are valued with lighting. Houses with low ceilings are favored by this type of luminaire.
2. Pendant luminaires for living room
Pendant luminaires fit best in high-ceilinged environments. To use this type of luminaire it is necessary to pay special attention to the design of it, since it will be highlighted in the room and must necessarily harmonize with the rest of the decoration.
When using a pendant luminaire, make sure that only it is sufficient to illuminate the entire environment or whether it will require reinforcement in the lighting. It is worth mentioning that it is possible to regulate the height of the luminaire, remembering that the higher it is the more it will illuminate the environment.
Another way to use pendant light fixtures is by creating a spotlight with it on tables, sideboards and counters. In this way it complements the main lighting and brings an extra "tchan" to the environment.
3. Floor or table lamps for living room
Floor or table lamps are most often used to create direct points of light, especially for reading or to assist other types of activities that require direct light. It is possible to find this type of lamp in different models, from the simplest to the most daring. Therefore, choose your own because much more than lighting, the lamp will be part of the decoration.
4. Chandeliers for living room
The same principle as for pendant luminaires applies to chandeliers . However, in this case, the difference is that the chandeliers are larger and have details that give it more elegance and sophistication. Usually they are made of glass or crystal, blending perfectly well with classic decorations.
5. Living Room Plafons
The ceilings are very similar to the recessed luminaires. They can be installed embedded or overlapped to the lining - PVC, plaster or wood - giving the same clean and modern look of the built-in luminaires. Plafons are a single LED board in white or yellow light versions. An economical lighting option.
6. Room washers
At washers are another luminaire option widely used in lighting projects. This type of luminaire is hung on the wall projecting a diffused and indirect light, ideal for those who want to create a cozy atmosphere in the room. However, before buying one, check which direction the light is projected. There are models of light output up, down or sideways, search for the model that best fits your project. Washers can also be used to enhance architectural or decorative traits.
Another important detail to take into consideration before buying the luminaire is to check with what material it is made. In addition to the design, the luminaire material directly influences the decoration.
A brief survey and you will realize that there are luminaires made of iron, aluminum, plastic, wood, glass, wicker, among others. And how do you know which material most suits your room's style? Keep in mind that iron luminaires bring a retro atmosphere to the environment. But if your intention is to create a modern style room, wager on materials like aluminum, plastic or glass.
The wood fits into modern, classic and rustic designs, depending on the finish of the luminaire and the type of wood used. Wicker and other types of fiber are more suitable for rustic and natural style projects.
