53+ Ceiling Light Fixture For Family Room Lighting Ideas

Family Room Lighting – The concept of layering light is particularly important in the family room, an area of the house where people tend to gather for long stretches of time and engage in an array of activities, including conversation, watching TV, reading, playing board games and using a laptop.

“In rooms where people spend a lot of time, I like to get away from recessed downlights, and instead use lights that bounce off the ceiling for ambient illumination,” says lighting designer Markus Earley, of earleylight, in Providence, R.I. “Bouncing light off the ceiling creates a sense of brightness in the room, and avoids the shadows or downward direction of recessed lights.”

Earley also favors bouncing light off the ceiling because it suits the human tendency to visually perceive vertical planes looking up versus looking at our feet. To accomplish ambient lighting that bounces off the ceiling of a family room, Earley suggests integrating cove or valance lighting into the room’s architecture.”

Or, if you have bookcases or an entertainment unit that doesn’t go all the way to the ceiling, there’s an opportunity to add a piece of millwork and put a linear fluorescent behind it,” suggests Earley, who likes the new slim T5 fluorescents that are dimmable and have good color rendering and a warm appearance.

Another way to provide ambient lighting in a family room is to wash the walls with light, which can be accomplished with soffit or valance lighting, recessed or track lighting that is directed toward the walls, or even with plug-in floor lamp torchieres with translucent upward facing globes.

Task lighting for a family room may be provided by table lamps, such as pharmacy-style adjustable lamps placed near a reading chair or game table.”An apothecary-style reading lamp with an LED or incandescent light bulb is one of my all-time favorite choices for task lighting,” says interior designer Cheryl Katz of C&J Katz Studio in Boston.

Accent lighting in a family room may be used to focus on an architectural element, such as a fireplace or bookcase, or on a painting, sculpture or plant.Uplights placed on the floor may be used as accent lighting for a plant, while track lighting may be used as accent lighting for artwork.

When lighting an art collection, the brightness and heat generated by a type of lighting must be considered; for some lighting designers, accent lighting for artwork is a particular area of expertise.

In a modest family room that has one wall switch wired to an outlet, a homeowner fix that provides energy efficiency and versatility would be to replace the wall switch with a dimmer, and add faux-cove lighting by concealing a fixture behind a piece of millwork added to the top of a bookcase, and wired to the outlet controlled by a dimmer.
