A change in lighting can brighten rooms, save energy, and create a new look. One tip is to choose a lighting focal point. For a large room, this can be a chandelier. For a smaller room, it could be a lamp or sconces. Another good idea is to use layering. Try to have at least three sources of light in every space. Dimmers are a way to change a room’s mood and also save on electricity costs. Also consider using a lighting control app. Upgrading an old ceiling fan or choosing a new lampshade can create instant improvements. Finally, when the holidays come around, switch to LED lights to reduce energy costs.
- As a lighting focal point, choose a chandelier for a larger space or a distinctive floor lamp for a smaller room.
- Install a dimmer switch to change the atmosphere of a room and to reduce the electricity bill.
- Consider upgrading your ceiling fan, replacing lampshades, and replacing light switches.
