Holiday Lighting

The holidays are here, time for parties and more time spent cozied up at home with bad weather.

Proper lighting can help your home feel more warm and inviting. The right fixtures and light configuration can help your room or space become more cozy. Getting the room lit up properly, without feeling like a doctor’s office or cubicle, can help you feel more comfortable at home.

Here are some tips to make your space extra cozy this holiday season:

Lamp shades can be your best friend! Lamp shades are the easiest way to shield eyes from bright bulbs, and they can even warm up a cool light bulb. Choosing the right light bulb can even make a huge difference in the feel of a space. Choose bulbs that say “warm, soft light” on them instead of “cool” ones.

If you have too much natural light during the daytime, you can consider hanging window sheers to filter it better. These are also a great option for a dining room, to set a more relaxing vibe during a dinner party.

A beautiful chandelier or pendant can help create a conversation piece during holiday parties as well. Some chandeliers can even be decorated for specific holidays with different shades or colored crystals. Pendants hanging over garlands can highlight a festive table. Get creative and remember to keep the lighting level low.

Have fun this holiday season and get creative with your decor and lighting. Happy Holidays from Harold’s Lighting in Seattle, WA!
