Adding light to any space instantly makes it more inviting and cozy. Here we will explore a few small living room lighting ideas to enhance your space.
You don’t always have to upgrade to a new chandelier to get a dramatic lighting effect in a living room, especially if the space is smaller. It’s much easier to incorporate a smaller table lamp, floor lamp, string lighting, or wall sconces to get a cozy atmosphere going. Be sure to utilize any windows that may be in your living space too, since natural light not only will save some energy, but increase the amount of light filtering into your space. Situate your seating in front of bright windows, and place additional lamps or wall-mounted lights in between to make your seating the focal point of the room.

You can check out a few layouts and design samples below that have included additional lighting fixtures seamlessly into a small space. You’ll notice that the added lighting makes the space much cozier and more welcoming.
