Choose the best lighting for your reading corner
If you have a space in your living room to read the latest bestsellers or literary novels of all time, then these tips will help you choose a good lighting for that reading corner.
The most economical and natural option
As a lighting designer, what I always advise first is to make the most of the natural lighting that enters in your room. That is, if possible, locate this reading corner next to the window or as close as possible to it.
The favorite, the floor lamp
The type of luminaire that is most advisable for a reading corner is the floor lamp. There are many variants of this luminaire, but the ideal for this space are those with a short or long arm. This type of arm allows you to turn it and thus direct the light on the desired place and avoid the shadows on it.
When your living room is small
If your living room is too small, it is best to use a table lamp, so you do not break with the scale of your space. This luminaire should be located on a tall furniture like a credenza and closest to the sofa where you sit to read your favorite books.
Another alternative to the floor lamp
Another alternative is a wall lamp with swing arm. It has the same function as a floor lamp but remember that the wall lamp is fixed on that wall.
Always remember to maintain the harmony between your decorative style and the style, finishing and color of your floor lamp. Let’s get ready to enjoy a reading afternoon or evening!
