3 Creative Ways to Improve Your Home Lighting
It's no surprise that lighting is one of the most important features in the home. What good is displaying beautiful new accessories or getting any cooking done without the right kind of lighting? Even if you're not the kind of person who pays much attention to light sources, just about everyone can detect when a space isn't bright enough. Here are 3 creative ways to improve your home lighting so you can get the most out of your favorite spaces.
1.) Kick up your kitchen lighting: The kitchen is the heart of the home and with good reason. It's where all the goodies are kept and prepared, and there's hardly anything worse than not having enough light when you're trying to make a meal. Las Vegas property managers recommend adding task lighting to your kitchen so you have ample light for counter activities. Under cabinet lighting is a creative and inexpensive way to infuse more light over work surfaces. If you want to add some ambient lighting that can also make a style statement, pendant lighting is an attractive choice and a welcome addition. Just keep in mind to plan for a style you can be used now for function as well later when you're ready to sell.
2.) Brighten up your bedroom: The bedroom is one of the most fun places to have lighting, because it's where you go to relax. Las Vegas property management companies advise not to use lighting that's too bright unless you need to illuminate a work area in the room. Chandeliers in master bedrooms are quickly becoming the new way to glam up and light the space, replacing a boring ceiling fixtures and acting as an artistic focal point. Funky, asymmetrical floor lamps are replacing typical matching table lamps as a fun way to infuse function and style. Backlit art work, lighted mirrors, or wall-mounted rope lighting in a neat design can also be an interesting accent. Also, adding perks like remote control or voice activated dimmer switches help set any mood without even flipping a switch.
3.) Illuminate your Lavatory: Need to add some pizazz to your powder room? You'll find the days of the typical ceiling light or the three bulb wall fixture above your mirror is becoming a thing of the past. Bathroom lighting is getting new life with fun additions like backlit shaped mirrors or pretty wall sconces cut directly into the vanity mirror. Recessed niche lighting and even rope lighting nestled along crown molding adds a new twist to the washroom. Don't forget about the added benefit of a shower light, and don't be surprised if you start seeing glam vintage style chandeliers in roomy master bathrooms for a touch of class.
