Home remodelling can prove strenuous if you are unsure of the perfect vision for your home’s interiors and lighting. If you struggle for inspiration, here are five cool lighting tips from modernised design to futuristic technology that can elevate any home remodel.
A Modern Spin on a Classic Design
With a vast timeline, vintage lighting can come in many forms, materials, and finishes. Edison-style or filament light bulbs have become a distinctive feature of the vintage look supported by metal shades in pastel-colored tone finishes, tinted glass shades, and prismatic silhouettes.
Combining modern interior and vintage lighting can create a sensational room any guest would be jealous of. For a modernised finish to your home, it is essential not to overpower this theme as this can create a ‘relic’ look, but to embellish the piece around prominent areas such as featured lights, wall lights, and simplistic lamps.
Smart lighting technology has become increasingly popular over the last few years, allowing consumers to control their lights, set timers, schedules, change colours all from the tap of your smartphone or voice control with a smart assistant.
If you want to make smart lighting AI your friend, start with smart bulbs! Most options available are pretty cheap and very easy to install. Replace the existing bulb and download a smart app. You can then activate your lights to turn on even when away from your home.
Invest in LED Bulbs
LED lights are highly efficient, with less heat, more light, and lower costs, becoming an environmental ally in the fight against climate change. Although these bulbs are high in price initially, they last up to ten years more than your average incandescent bulb.
LED lights can be manufactured in all shapes and sizes. One of the most popular forms of LED bulbs is strip lights. You can use LED light strips on the back of a television or computer screen to create bias lighting, which aids in relieving eye strain. You can wonderfully place strips of LED lights on the top, bottom, and sides of your devices which can become a beautiful companion to colours painted on the display screen.
Juxtapose warm tonal light colours with cool white lighting. Popular in kitchens, utility rooms, bathrooms, offices, and other work environments, these lights are best suited for energetic areas of the home.
Cool white lighting is much closer to the older styles of the average fluorescent tube lights and helps to improve concentration.
Make Your Lighting a Statement Piece
The walls in your home are the perfect blank canvas for creative ideas. Go one above a statement gallery wall and add lights to create an artistic piece.
It is essential to experiment and incorporate different ideas. Add an LED neon light, scatter prominent lamp shades or drape cluster lights to create your feature wall, or elevate your existing feature wall with small light fixtures or LED strip lights.
