Recessed lighting provides excellent overall illumination for a living room. These compact fixtures are great for lower ceilings as they don’t add additional depth. Recessed lights can be used as part of an overall lighting scheme that combines task and ambient lighting.
Kelly Taylor Interior Design crafted a modern retreat that focuses on the view of the water. Streamlined bedding and built-in storage make the space feel clean and organized. Soft grays and whites make the space feel fresh. Recessed overhead lighting is only needed in the evening as the space receives plenty of daylight.
MC Design created a boho bedroom with lots of visual interest. A focal wall with textured metallic wallpaper grounds the scene. A peacock-themed pendant provides bedside lighting, and colorful textured pillows and linens round out the look. Recessed fixtures provide overhead illumination.
Mindy Laven designed a black-and-white bedroom that relies heavily on pattern and some pops of color. She used a simple white ceiling fan, which is a must for many in the bedroom. While many fans incorporate lights, that’s not always enough to adequately light the space, and recessed fixtures fill that void.
Pamela Hope Designs made efficient use of this space in a bedroom and created a built-in vanity with tons of storage and display space. Shaded sconces provide lighting for the vanity, while recessed fixtures provide overall light for the space. An ornate framed mirror serves as the focal point.
This grand retreat by MC Design provides several layers of lighting. Two pendants serve as bedside lighting, freeing up space on the nightstands. Rather than using a ceiling fixture, the designer opted for a ceiling fan in this warm climate. Recessed lights provide general overhead illumination.
Now that you’ve learned some new creative applications for recessed lighting in the living room, you are ready to tackle your own project. Pairing recessed lights with floor or table lamps as well as pendants and wall sconces creates a well-rounded lighting scheme. Happy decorating in your space!
