Tips to better illuminate our living room

Tips to better illuminate our living room

Ideas to keep in mind before you start:

First

Let’s define the use we make of it. To do that, we’re going to answer some questions:

  • – Is it a family gathering place?
  • – Just to watch TV?
  • – Do children use it?
  • – Does it include a dining area?
  • – Will friends come there?
  • – Is there space for reading?

Once we have assessed all the information, we will decide on the general lighting, as a whole. Also, we will detect possible areas that we should complement, according to the use.

Let’s pay attention to the style we want in our space, that is, our own style.

Nordic, vintage, modern or colonial, minimalist … or the opposite? 😉

And according to the style,

  • – What is the effect we are looking for?
  • – What do we want to convey in each space?
  • – What sensation do we expect to be invaded by being there?

Don’t forget that mixing decorative styles gives strength and personality to the rooms.

 

Third

Now, let’s divide by zones: central, dining room, reading, entertainment.

Choose the focal point and from there, it will be easier to find the perfect lighting in each area.

For the dining area, choose direct light. It is important not to affect food colors.

If the living room is also a perfect place for reading, you will need a direct, powerful and perhaps colder light.

Finally, the final touches, shall we perfect them?

If you find corners that don’t look lit enough, it’s time to think about wall lights, ambient, dim, indirect lighting.

They give a decorative and intimate touch that you will not be dissapointed of, they can create real works of art in light.

And finally, always do your best to ensure that natural light floods into each and every corner of your living room, of your home.

It allows you to keep the table clear and decorate it with that candle holder that you like so much.

Now, enjoy it!

Estudi Ribaudi Hoops

It’s more than a wall sconce. It ´s a game of adjustable lights and shadows.

Its dimable central LED module also allows changing the light projection angle.

Approaching nature, the rings of beech wood draw circles that magically transform the spaces.

Its manufacturing process is left in Pere´s hands, a carpenter in Banyoles and our technical team.
