Living room lighting serves a dual purpose: it works as a light source, but also as a decorative accessory. It's important to have a variety of lighting that not just accommodates whatever events take place there, but also looks great in the space.
The size of the room will dictate how far you can pull your furniture away from the walls, but even in a small space you’ll want to give pieces a little breathing room by allowing a few inches between the backs of furniture pieces and the walls. Despite popular belief, this little bit of space can actually make rooms feel bigger. Of course if you have a larger space feel free to arrange furniture in such a way that conversation areas are created in the middle of the room, leaving several feet between the walls and the furniture.
One of the most important things to consider when arranging furniture in any room is traffic flow. People should not be tripping over furniture, or each other, to pass through the room. Make sure there are a couple feet (give or take a few inches) between the coffee table and sofa, and between chairs. Create a clear path so people can walk from one end of the room to the other without difficulty.
When choosing a color, you’ll want to look at how much natural light the room receives throughout the day and think about your other sources of lighting. Natural, fluorescent, and incandescent light can all change the look of a paint color, which is why it’s important to see the color in your space before you break out the roller and brushes.
