When you want to give your home a new look but you don't have the time or a budget for a remodel, you may be wondering what you can do to give your space a facelift. Upgrading your lighting fixtures is one way to achieve a new look in your home without having to do a major renovation project. With the help of an electrical contractor from a company like B Electric Inc and a few new lighting fixtures, you can transform your space. Here are some lighting fixture ideas you can use in your home.
Under-cabinet lighting in your kitchen can help to illuminate your food prep area and give your space a more gourmet look. Your electrician can run the wiring needed for this project and hide the lights under your cabinetry for a finished look. You can also add this type of lighting to the kick plates on your bottom cabinets. This lighting can serve as a nightlight of sorts in your kitchen for when you or your family members want to grab a midnight snack.
The bathroom may not be the first place you would think of to add a chandelier, but this type of lighting fixture can create a focal point in your room. If you have a freestanding bathtub, placing a chandelier above it can add an elegant look. A modern chandelier in the center of your bathroom can bring added illumination and an updated appearance to your space. Your electrician can hardwire the fixture for you and make sure it is installed appropriately for use in wet or damp locations.
Wall sconces can bring an updated look to virtually any room in your home. Add them above your nightstands on either side of your bed for bedtime reading illumination, and add them throughout long hallways to brighten dark corners. You an also add sconces to your bathroom on each side of your vanity and near the entrances to each room. If you don't already have junction boxes to support adding these fixtures, your electrician can run the wiring in each room and install the sconces for you. When working with your electrician, be sure to ask about having dimmers installed for each lighting fixture so you can control the intensity of light. This lets you adjust the lighting concept for each room with a turn of a dial. With a little help from your electrician, you can give each room in your home a brand new look.
