The year is only a few months old, but you may have already started on some home remodeling or redecorating projects. You’ve spent time on the weekends and in the evenings making small adjustments, such as rearranging furniture or painting the living room wall a different color. However, with summer on its way, you might be thinking about major projects and which ones you can get done during the warmer months of the year. You might be planning on remodeling your kitchen, or finally starting on that master bathroom project you’ve been putting off for several years.
Lighting is an integral part of every remodeling project, and if you’ve been thinking about how you can improve your lighting this year, then visit The House of Lights & Home Accents in Melbourne today. Our staff can help you choose the right options for every room!
What Changes Do You Want to Make?
With any remodeling project, you have a pretty good idea of the changes that you want to make, or at least the benefits you want to reap from those changes. You want more space in the bathroom, or you want a bigger living room that has more space for a home entertainment area. If you know the end result that you want, then it’s important to ask the question, “What changes do I need to make to get there?” Those changes may involve taking down a wall (or building one), and with any dimensional changes within a room, it’s imperative that you think about your new lighting. A bigger light fixture may be necessary for a bigger room, and if you’re planning to add a ceiling fan, then you’ll need to make sure it’s the right size. If you’re partitioning a room into different areas, then you’ll need new lighting for each space.
How Will the Room Be Used?
Another thing to consider is how the room will be used with its new design and configuration. If you’re transforming a spare bedroom into a home gym or a home office, then your lighting will need to reflect the room’s new purpose. Floor lamps and desk lamps are integral to a home office, and new recessed lighting can be perfect for a home gym. Recessed fixtures will provide the light you need, while not being in the way of your new gym equipment. You can get rid of the old semi-flush mount on the ceiling and add lighting that reflects your new vision for the space!
