It is necessary to be creative designing living room lights. Also technical calculations of light level and the availability of funds are required. If to use only general living room light fixtures (chandelier or decorative light, located in the center of the room) bright light will only be in the center of the room. Using of local decorative lighting with spot or directional light will be the most rational decision.
There are several ways to implement living room light. For example the lamps of upward or downward lightning are extremely impressive. The walls due to such a method acquire lightness and transparency because the light pours them with thin veil. So there are a lot of different lights for living room and you have only to choose some of them.
