Living Room Lighting FAQ

Whether you have questions about sconces for your living room or pendant lights for your foyer, our team is here to help with answers to the most frequently asked questions.

What lighting is best for living rooms?

When you’re considering modern living room light fixtures, a few things to keep in mind include layering your lighting for the space from the ground up. Start with your table and floor lamps before moving on to wall sconces, pendants, or chandeliers. 

Layering is important because sometimes, you’ll want all the lights on — like when you’re hosting — but other times, you just need enough light to snuggle up on the couch and read.

What are the current trends in lighting?

Trends come and go, but there are a few that have been around for a while. Some of our favorite current modern lighting trends include:

Should you put warm or cool lighting in the living room?

Warm or cool lighting refers to the hue of the light bulb (measured in Kelvins), and each one creates a different sort of ambiance. While there is a range that can work for every space, we recommend a warm and cozy vibe for your living room. Warm bulbs can create an environment for relaxation where you don’t need harsh task lighting — like in your office.

What is the ideal color range for my light bulbs?

Modern living room light fixtures should ideally range between 2700K and 3000K. You may also see these bulbs described as soft white.

Do my living room light fixtures have to match?

Lighting is a little bit like fashion or jewelry. While there are some basic guidelines, you can typically mix and match your light fixtures to create an atmosphere that appeals to you. If you have wall sconces, we do recommend matching sets, but the same doesn’t have to be true for your lamps or pendant lights. You can create cohesion throughout your living room with a few singular elements that refer to one another.

Shapes and sizes may vary, but perhaps all your fixtures are the same color. Or maybe, the shapes are all the same, but the sizes and colors are different. Play with a few different modern living room light fixture options to discover what appeals to you and looks good in your space.
