There are so many ways to update your interior space and some can get pretty expensive before you even realise it. If you’re looking for a way to update your space, change the way it looks, get immediate results, and not break the bank by doing so, you may want to consider changing your lighting. Lighting is something that often goes forgotten, which is a shame when you think about how much of a dramatic impact it can have in a space. It doesn’t matter if it’s a small or large space, you’ll see instant results.
Now don’t forget when shopping for light fixtures you also want to take into account the lightbulb itself. Options such as LED ceiling spotlights, LED strip lights, and LED flood lights can make for wonderful eco-friendly and energy-saving options.
Familiarise Yourself with Fixtures
The best way to get started is to familiarise yourself with the variety of fixtures available. Let’s take a very brief look at some of the most popular light fixtures.
Wall fixtures – Wall fixtures tend to be a little less popular than other varieties, but they shouldn’t be ignored. These types of fixtures are installed on your wall and can provide beautiful up or down lighting, can add accent lighting in a room, and can work brilliantly if you’re looking for task lighting.
Ceiling fixtures – These are perhaps one of the most common types of light fixtures. They flush to the ceiling and can be found in all different finishes and styles. Designers recommend these styles of fixtures in bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, and laundry rooms thanks to the amount of light they can give off. Be sure to check out the many LED ceiling spotlights available.
Recessed Lighting – This is when you can look into an LED ceiling spotlight type of lightbulb. Recessed lighting is just as it sounds, it is installed into your ceiling and is recessed, so that it is flush to the ceiling itself. This is a wonderful way to light basements, entertainment rooms, family rooms, kitchens, and more.
Chandeliers – If it’s drama you’re hoping to achieve, then a chandelier is a natural choice. The electrical components sit flush against the ceiling then there is a drop lighting effect and the chandelier can be as ornate, elegant, classy, modern, or unique as you like. These are popular in dining rooms, foyers with tall ceilings, bathrooms, and even bedrooms.
Accent Lighting – While not exactly a light fixture, accent lighting plays a huge role in the look of your home. If you are looking to illuminate the underside of your kitchen cupboards, around an entertainment unit, task lighting, and more than LED strip lights are a great option to consider. The strips come in different lengths and types, and you can get a variety of colors.
