Home Lighting Options
  • Opening Intro -

    You can instantly update your home by changing out or installing new home lighting.

    Lighting is key with regards to establishing a welcoming and inviting home atmosphere.

    Although, there are some lighting fixtures that can cost an arm or a leg, there are many other affordable home lighting home options that can make the impact you want without breaking the bank.


Did you move into a newly constructed home and did not opt for the glamorous and pricey home lighting package? Well, we did and after 10 years of living in our house, we decided to trade out those basic brassy lighting fixtures for something more our style. We slowly replaced our kitchen and dining room lighting fixtures and it made such a significant impression that we decided to keep going and replace the rest of the fixtures on the main floor.

Although the dining room and kitchen fixtures were different, we decided that the rest of the fixtures in the hallway areas needed to be the same for uniformity. We were pleasantly surprised with the wide variety of choices and styles, particularly with online home lighting stores. The prices were reasonable and we could shop from the comfort of our own home. Most websites we checked out even offered free shipping and returns too. This we found to be quite convenient.

Installing dimmers to your current lighting fixtures is an excellent way to update your home. Not only is it inexpensive, but an easy do-it-yourself project which can be done quite quickly. For example, most chandeliers are quite stunning but sometimes can be slightly over powering with regards to the amount of light that is released from them. To truly make any lighting fixture shine (no pun intended), it would be ideal to control how much or how little light is emitted from them and dimmers give you that control in order to create that desired atmosphere.

Another way to update your home lighting would be to trade out those older table and floor lamps. If you like the base of these fixtures, go ahead and replace the shades for an inexpensive and quick update. If you do decide to purchase completely new lamps, be sure to see what the maximum voltage is and opt to put in a three-way light bulb. This can control the amount of light you would like to have in a room.

As you can see, by making small lighting changes throughout a home, a quick update is made and may even inspire you and give you the confidence you need to take on other home lighting projects such as installing track or spot lighting.
