Let's face it: if you live in New England, then Sundays are all about football. Whether you watch with the whole family in the living room or you hang out in your man cave with your best buds, we have some lighting tips that will enhance everyone's viewing experience.
Understand lighting basics.
- Ambient lighting is general lighting, or the main lighting that exists in the room.
- Accent lighting is a fun way to personalize a media room or living room. For example, light a display case that features your favorite player's jersey. Or use sconces for a decorative touch, one that can also provide just enough light to navigate to the snack table and back.
- Task lighting helps you do certain tasks. We typically talk about task lighting in the kitchen (for doing things like chopping veggies) or bathroom (shaving, applying makeup), but it also figures into our entertainment spaces. "Bias lighting" alleviates eyestrain that results from watching TV in a dark room.
