Can I Use a Chandelier in the Living Room?

If you’re looking for a way to bring new life to your living room try looking up. A new light fixture may be all that’s needed for that extra something that makes the whole room sparkle. No matter what your décor style is, don’t overlook the design possibilities of a chandelier; there’s one that’s right for every style. In the world of lighting few fixtures are more impressive than a grand chandelier dripping with crystals, but if your taste runs more to the contemporary, modern, whimsical or even rustic Kingdom Lighting has a chandelier to fit your style.

Lighting Needs

Ambient and task lighting are the two types of light typically needed in a living room, chandeliers can fulfill both of those needs.

  • Task Lighting with a Chandelier: A small shaded chandelier hung low near a reading chair makes a stylish task light and eliminates the need to take up space on a table with a lamp. Shades on a chandelier help direct the light downward where it’s needed most. The addition of a dimmer switch makes the lamp more functional, lower the volume for mood lighting and turn it up when you need task lighting.
  • Ambient Lighting with a Chandelier: With crystals or without, the form of a chandelier is perfect for bouncing light up toward the ceiling and out to the walls. In a large living room that requires track or recessed lighting, use a chandelier as a decorative accent to draw focus away from less attractive but functional lights.
