The living room is the center of the house. Friends are accepted here, holidays are celebrated, they spend time with the family. And the situation here should be appropriate: cozy and at the same time solemn. In this regard, it is difficult to overestimate the role of a chandelier in the interior of the living room. What should it be? What should you pay attention to when choosing? This will be discussed in our article.Little Light Svettip Light -flowered color resolve
Chandelier is primarily a lighting device, and then a decorative element. Accordingly, the first requirement for it is a sufficient amount of light.
So that the light is bright, the ceiling chandelier in the living room should consist of five to six rounds. The familiar lighting means are incandescent lamps, however, with a fairly large size of the room of their light, it may not be enough.
It is easiest to achieve the necessary brightness using a modern light source - LED lamps. It is worth considering that the presence of mirror parts in the lamp will also increase the amount of light in the room.
For ease of adjustment of illumination, a switch with two keys or a more modern device - dimmer is usually installed.
The color of the light
In order for a feeling of comfort to appear, the light in the living room should be made warm. Nice natural light give an incandescent lamps. Warm LED lamps are also suitable (you can find out about their light temperature on the package).
If you want to experiment and set the color “in the mood”, you can look for a LED chandelier controlled from a remote control that can shimmer with completely diverse colors. An example of using such a chandelier in the living room can be seen in the photo.
Type of the lamp
In order for the chandelier to successfully fit into the room, it is important to choose its shape correctly. There are two types of ceiling lamps: Suspended - classic version. It looks like a candelabrum: cartridges for lamps in it are located vertically, why it is more suitable for spacious rooms with high ceilings. It is used both in traditional styles (for example, baroque or Provence), and in modern interiors. Flat (reciprocal) - a more modern option, often similar to a plate. Due to the horizontal arrangement of cartridges, it seems to “stick” to the ceiling, so it looks organically in small rooms with low ceilings and is used in a variety of styles.
For non -standard style solutions or types of premises, copyright products are suitable. They are usually executed to order and exist in a single copy. Often these works of art serve as an excellent accent around which the entire interior is formed.
The dimensions of the ceiling lamp are largely dependent on the height of the room. So, in a spacious living room with high ceilings, a small chandelier will not make a proper impression, and the amount of light from it will be clearly insufficient. In a low room - on the contrary, a massive product will look cumbersome and uncomfortable.
In order to more accurately recognize the necessary dimensions, it is enough to fold the length and width of the room in meters and multiply by ten. The resulting number in centimeters will be the optimal diameter of the lamp. For example, for a room of 5 by 4 m, a product with a diameter of 90 cm is suitable.
It should also be remembered that for comfortable movement in the room, it is necessary that the indentation from the floor to the bottom of the lighting device is at least 1.9 m.
Choosing a color for the lamp should be consciously, understanding what place he is given in the interior.
A beautiful chandelier in the living room can become an emphasizing design element. In this case, it should be distinguished either by a bright color, or some kind of special shade that is absent in other details of the interior.
The choice of accent color should be approached very carefully if the room is generally made in soft colors. Pure "children's" flowers should be avoided, since they can ruin the feeling of solemnity.
In two -color lamps, a combination of bright, close to the "clean", and neutral (pastel) colors is considered beautiful.
Do not also forget about the style of the living room. For classicism or baroque, white color is great in combination with golden shades. Provence is characterized by light unobtrusive shades. And in modern styles, such as high-tech and minimalism, black, white and brilliant gray prevail.
Material of execution
The use of this or that material when designing a chandelier depends on the stylistic solution of the design of the living room.
For classics or baroque, suspended lamps with fabric lamps are suitable. The use of forged metal products with imitation of bronze or the effect "under the old days" is welcome.
Crystal or its likeness with an abundance of shiny decorative elements that create a feeling of splendor is also suitable for baroque.
The Provence is characterized by the presence of a thread on a wooden structure, as well as lace on the plafon.
As for modern chandeliers in the living room, the choice is also great here. For example, for the loft style, the product design can be made of black shiny or “rusty” metal.
Also, a lamp made in this style may be a composition of bulbs suspended behind the wires. For high-tech, modern materials, such as chrome, glass, plastic.
