Welcome to today's home update!
When designing a space in your home, don't settle for boring lighting! Here are three ways to get creative with lighting with minimal effort.
- Try lighting unexpected places. There's no need to settle for simple overhead lighting. You can up-the-ambiance and interest in a room by lighting a strip along a floor or beneath the kitchen counter. You can also place rope lighting along the edge of your staircase or indirect lighting above a kitchen cabinet.
- Light your spaces in layers. Think about lighting in three main layers; overhead lighting, task lighting and accent lighting. Trying framing lighting around your bed frame.
- Be sure to dim your lights. Dimming switches only run about $25, so scatter them throughout your home and enjoy a slightly smaller utility bill in the process. According to the American Lighting Association, a dimmer switch saves you about $30 a year on your utility bills.
