February 15, 2012

One easy upgrade to your home that is cost effective AND welcoming is new lighting. Check out my hot tip video below:

New fixtures can enhance a space, brighten a room, add drama, and change the overall mood when you walk inside. Even changing the lighting outside a home – such as lighting a sidewalk, a patio, a driveway or a deck – can do wonders for a space. What areas of your home do you think lighting is the most important for added effect?

Stay tuned next week for another hot tip!

    I am desperate for lighting in my laundry room. I hate that chore enough as it is, but it makes it worse when it’s drab in there.

      What kind of lighting do you currently have in your laundry room? Agreed – it is such a chore but unfortunately has to get done!

      Check out my post on

      . Even though these are all beautiful dream laundry rooms, under cabinet lighting, tap lights (which you can stick anywhere) or even just a strategically placed lamp can help lighten things up.

        Yep. Once I get my living room finished, I think my laundry room may be next. I don’t have much in there right now–just overhead (like ONE) and the sun through a small window. One of my biggest issues is that it’s a 1950s house and there are limited outlets. Battery powered might be my best option.

        It is a room where we find ourselves spending so much of our time, so it’ll be worth the effort. Keep me posted on your progress!
