In this post, we’ll look at some ways you can upgrade your home lighting. When you’re ready to start shopping for new lights, visit one of our Alberta showrooms to discover the perfect options!
New Kitchen Lighting
You may spend a lot of time in your kitchen, cooking, entertaining, or spending time together as a family, which is why it’s important to have the proper lighting in the space. From overhead lighting provided by recessed lights to task and accent lighting provided by island pendants, your kitchen needs layers of light in order to be functional and appealing. If you don’t have under cabinet lighting, that can be a perfect upgrade that requires minimal time and investment.
New Bathroom Lighting
The bathroom should be a calm and welcoming space where you can get ready for work in the morning or unwind at the end of a long day. If your current master bathroom or guest bath only has one overhead light, consider replacing it with a mini chandelier or pendant light. You can also replace those outdated vanity lights above the mirror with wall sconces on either side of the sink. Sconces can provide better task lighting for putting on makeup, shaving, and other personal hygiene tasks, without creating unwanted lines and shadows on your face.
New Bedroom Lighting
Your bedroom is your retreat from the world, where you can shut the door and spend time how you want. It’s important to have layers of lighting in the bedroom, from the overhead light to the bedside lamps. If you have an old pendant or flush mount fixture on the ceiling, consider upgrading it with a new ceiling fan. You can also add sconces for task and accent lighting, and it’s never a bad idea to update your table lamps for reading before bed.
New Living Room Lighting
Your living room is a space where friends and family gather, whether to watch a movie or play, or when the holidays arrive and everyone is together for the first time all year. When it comes to updating your living room lighting, think about how the space is used. If you have a home theater area, consider installing new recessed lighting that can be dimmed while watching your favorite shows or movies. For the seating area, make sure you have table and floor lamps that provide ample task and accent lighting.
