Living Room Ceiling Lights
Which ceiling lights are suitable for the living room?
Living room ceiling lights are the main light source in the room. Alternatives to regular ceiling lights include modern LED panels that provide wide-area lighting and multi-bulb ceiling spotlights. It is important to align the spotlights so that all areas of your room are evenly lit. If done correctly, you can avoid being dazzled by glaring light when sitting on the sofa.
Regular ceiling lights can be perfectly matched to the style oft he room.

How bright do living room ceiling lights need to be?
Unfortunately, it’s impossible to give a definite answer about the brightness requirements of ceiling lights in the living room. Why? Because not only does it rely on personal preference, light reacts differently depending on wall colour, layout, furniture and room structure. We would suggest going for 140 lumens per m² as a guideline.
Which living room ceiling lights are modern?
A whole range of furnishing styles are in vogue today. The reduced, modern minimalist look, which is expressed in filigree ceiling lights with built-in LEDs, is becoming increasingly popular. Natural chic with wooden elements and the rustic, casual charm of industrial chic are also bestsellers for ceiling lights in the living room.

Are there dimmable ceiling lights for the living room?
Many ceiling lights can be dimmed via an external dimmer. However, paying attention to a dimmable light and installing the appropriate dimmer is necessary.
LED ceiling lights come with a permanently installed dimmer, which means the living room ceiling light can be dimmed from the sofa via remote control. Smart home lights and bulbs are similar, as they allow you to play with several functions, such as dimming and colour changing, via a smartphone app.
Which bulbs are recommended for living room ceiling lights?
Ceiling lights in the living room are one of the most used lights in the home. For this reason, modern LEDs are the ideal option as they consume up to 90% less electricity than incandescent bulbs. Also, LEDs have a service life of up to 50,000 hours, compared to incandescents which only last up to 1,000 hours.
So, once you’ve installed LED bulbs, it’ll be a long time before you have to change them again.

By doing so, you retrofit smart home lights, which opens up a lot of different lighting functions, including dimming and colour changing. The result? You turn your living room lighting from one glaring light into an individual, customised and ever-changing lighting experience.
