The lighting you choose can do a lot to set the mood in your home, and it can also help you save on your energy bill. Think strategically about how you want to illuminate your home, and you can easily give your living space a lighting makeover.
There are many ways to use light to decorate and set the mood in a room. Colored lamp shades can add cool or warm tones, and multicolored shades add dimension and warmth. Shop for lamp shades that coordinate with your existing furniture and window coverings. Use direction creatively, aiming lighting upward to create the illusion of higher ceilings. You can also control the mood by installing dimmer switches.
Keeping lighting easy to use and ambient will make life more pleasant for your family and guests. Light switches should be easy to reach in dark rooms and entrances. Use nightlights in all your bathrooms, and place reading lamps on night stands and near your armchairs and couch.
Using energy-efficient lighting is good for the environment and can save you money. Whenever a bulb runs out, replace it with an energy-efficient light bulb, and use the minimum wattage needed. During the day, take advantage of natural light, and at night, only turn on the lights you need. Always remind your family to turn off lights before leaving the house.
