Lighting Concept- Living Room

The approach to the lighting concept was to have a "functional lighting" and a "mood lighting".

Functional light 
1. Choice of white light for reading on the sofa
2. With a ceiling fan and no downlights or cove lights (see why here) we opted to choose a ceiling fan with built-in light to reduce the spinning shadow effect caused by the light located above the fan blades.

Mood Lights
1. Choice of yellow light
2. Can be used as a night light during the childrens' quiet time before bed.
3. Installed through wall mounted and ceiling mounted chandlers.

The cost savings of converting from down lights/cove lights to the above lighting concept can be found here.
