Looking to make a big change in your decor but not sure where to start? One of the first things we did when we bought our house was change ALL the light fixtures in the entire house. It’s amazing the instant impact changing an
indoor lamp actually has on the whole look of a room!
Look for classic lines and timeless styles when you update lighting fixtures so you won’t have to change them out every couple years. Unless you find something trendy that you absolutely HAVE to have, then lean more towards simple, clean lines that will look good with all decor styles.
Switching out a pendant light can be a simple fix that most people can do themselves. If you feel uncomfortable dealing with electricity yourself, find a reputable electrician in your area by searching on Google or Angie’s List. Keep this cost in mind when buying new light fixtures. Professional electricians charge anywhere from $40 to $100 an hour, depending on the job and the skill level of the person doing the job.
If you can’t afford to purchase all new light fixtures right now, you can easily makeover any room with GE Reveal Light Bulbs. You can save energy and improve the quality of light in the room just by changing out your light bulbs. GE LED light bulbs use 80% less energy than incandescent bulbs which saves you a lot of cash.
In conclusion, be sure that your lighting choices match the rest of your home’s decor even if you are planning on changing out the interior decor of your home. You don’t want tropical-styled lamps in a New England colonial house!
