Low ceiling living room lighting can come in many clever designs. Lights that point upwards or that are diffused are an effective way of illuminating a living room with low ceilings. For that reason, chandeliers, orbs, and lampshade lights are a popular choice for ambient lighting. Ceiling fans with lights are another great option because they generally hang close to the ceiling and offer two-in-one functionality.

You may be surprised to learn a statement-making light fixture can still be appropriate as lighting for a low ceiling living room. Simply look for lights that are mounted flush to the ceiling.
