How to make your home brighter and more inviting using lighting options from Kijiji
House lighting is something that can improve your home and is something guests to your home or potential buyers will notice! If you understand the best lighting and how to use it, you can make your home a brighter and more inviting place to be. It is easy to upgrade your lighting with Kijiji.
Here are some home lighting ideas, in no particular order:
1. Ceiling Mounted Lighting:
A pendant light is a light that hangs down from a ceiling light fixture on a rod or chain. It is versatile, because it can be used for general lighting, where visibility is increased by the light being thrown up to the ceiling, for area lighting that lights up only part of the room, or task lighting, where the light is brought down to where it is needed, for reading or work.
Pot lights are also known as recessed lights. This is because they are installed right into the ceiling line, so that all the mechanisms are hidden. These lights are ideal for places with low overhead, like basements. Regardless of where they are, pot lights give even light distribution to any room.
Track lighting is a contemporary feature that can easily be used to update the lighting in your home. This is because tracks are so adaptable. They can suit what space they are placed in, with different sizing options and fixture styles. Track lights can be changed around and aimed at any room feature that you want to emphasize and can be used to help artwork stand out, which is a great way to personalize your space.
2. Wall Mounted Lighting:
Sconces are mounted to walls, which means they provide light without taking up space on the floor or ceiling, and they do not have to have to be set on a table. Their light points upward rather than downward, for a different kind of lighting. They can add light to dark corners or give extra light and decorative flair to an area without taking up room. There are many styles to choose from, so they can complement any décor.
Wall lamps are a nice touch to have in your home, but they are more for creating ambiance than for the light they give off. They can embellish a space, but require special wiring, so that has to be taken into consideration.
Table lamps come in so many different varieties, shapes and sizes that the possibilities are endless. There is sure to be a lamp that reflects your taste and beautifies your home. But any lamp you have should be functional as well. Keep in mind what light needs you have when selecting a lamp.
Cordless lamps are handy for those places that need light but don’t have an outlet nearby.
4. Outdoor Lighting:
People often don’t take outdoor lighting into consideration when they think of lighting, which is a shame. Outdoor lighting can be an accent to your home and can add value. In addition to adding beauty, lighting is essential for safety and security reasons.
There are so many light sources that can provide ambience and give your outdoor home space a welcoming glow. For example, string lights can add whimsy and can make your porch or back yard look special. Solar deck lights can light up walkways for safety and motion sensor lights will alert you if someone is around your home, providing security.
