Lighting your living room well is vital because we spend so much time there in the evenings. The right lighting can transform you living room into a cosy, inviting space; the wrong lighting, however, can leave your room feeling as bleak as a dentist’s waiting room.
Start think about the different zones of your living room and choose light sources accordingly: you'll need task lighting, such as a standing or table lamp over an armchair for reading; a dimmable central pendant light for those occasions when you want the room brightly lit; and plenty of accent lighting in the form of low-level table lights, picture lights and even lighting hidden within alcove shelving.
A country style living room design often include traditional features like large brick-built hearths, broad timber beams and carpets, although undecorated wooden floors work really well in a country style living room. Large dining tables and accessories like candles can also be great additions.
Where you position furniture will also depend on your choice of focal point. If a large window looking out onto the garden is the main focal point, the seating should be placed to take in the view, thus creating a comfortable space to relax in.
