Living room design, lighting and space

With the right lighting the living room space can be used for any occasion.

Whether it is movie night or you are reading a book lighting will have a big impact on how your space is used.

A great guideline to help you when lighting your Living Room is that every well-lit room should have at least three unique points of light, that vary from bright, concentrated light to soft ambient light, from halogen downlights, to lamps. Natural light is always the best light source for daytime, but in the evening you need to have options for entertaining, watching a movie or reading a book.


Having the right position and type of lighting throughout your house is very important. Talk to a Mitre 10 staff member in the lighting department to ensure you get the right lighting mix.
