Many people don’t realize that the easiest and many times most cost efficient ways to update a space is by installing new light fixtures. A lot of homeowner’s think they’re stuck with what was there when they bought the home or that new light fixtures are too expensive or do not make that much of a difference on the overall style and mood of a room. Well, we think they’re wrong! A change up of a lighting source can make the world of difference in a room and can completely transform a space.
Many people do not change the lighting in their homes because: 1.They think new lighting is too expensive, and 2. They don’t know how to change the fixture or are worried they’d mess something up. Well, we’re here to tell you that you can find affordable lighting fixtures to suit the style and lighting needs of your room AND that installing light fixtures shouldn’t be as intimidating as it seems.
Whether you need a pendant, chandelier, lamp, sconce or undercabinet lighting, you’ll have thousands of styles and brands to choose from. Your best bet is to go to a qualified and trusted lighting store near you, and ask for help. Expert lighting staff can help you pick out the right size, shape and style for your space, and can help explain how to install it. Many places even have installers that can come to your home and help you put your new light fixture in.
A common mistake many people make when choosing new light fixtures is that they go to a regular department store or discounted manufacturer and just pick out something they think will work. Unfortunately, many times this is where people run in to issues. The instructions on the box can be confusing, and many times these mass made fixtures don’t complement the lighting needs of your space.
Picking out and installing a new lighting fixture in a home or office is something that everyone can do. If you need help, ask! Bring photos of your current space and expert staff, like ours at Harold’s Lighting in Bellevue and Seattle, can help you reach your lighting goals. New fixtures can brighten up a space and add character and style while still staying in a budget that is reasonable for your personal needs.
