With the New Year finally here and 2024 raring to go, let’s talk about brightening your home in a stylish, trend-setting way! Light fixtures are an oft-forgotten yet critical element to home design and ambiance, so let’s delve into some tips for a lighter, brighter new year!
Let’s talk lamps: Whether statement or merely additional lighting, lamps can elevate the lighting of a space in various ways. Standing lamps can add a classy yet cozy warmth to a room, whereas desk lamps are great for adding a warm glow, especially when actually placed on a desk or side table.
When adding a new light fixture or even changing current lighting, consider the types of light bulbs. Depending on decor, paint colors, or desired ambiance, the kind of light bulb used can totally change a space. Look into warm versus cool bulbs and consider consistency throughout a home or room.
For those of you with money to splurge, try color-changing bulbs. Easily found online and in stores, color-changing bulbs are a great way to add a pop of color to a lamp, a way to change an ambiance from cool to warm, or lower brightness depending on the mood. Many have apps that add a level of ease or, if you forget to turn a light off when going to bed, an easy way to turn it off without leaving the coziness of bed.
For those looking to make a subtle statement, changing out a central ceiling fixture can totally elevate a space. These types of light fixtures can be a bit pricey but are certainly a bold and worthwhile expense for those who are more style-forward or desire to make a room look totally new.
