Cozy up your home for winterFriday 1st June 2018 05:00pm
If the dark winter days on the horizon have got you down, it may be time to warm up your home's lighting.
While adjusting your lighting may not be something you think about on a daily basis, you'll be surprised how much adding an extra table lamp or switching light bulbs can alter the mood of a room.
Don't believe it? Take the challenge: Try one of these lighting tips!
Vary your light fixtures
Nothing screams louder than an unflattering fluorescent light flicking overhead. If you live in a rental apartment with harsh built-in lighting, investing in a couple of table and floor lamps can dramatically change the mood of your living room. For a homier vibe, choose a mix of light-diffusing shaded lamps placed at varying levels (table and floor) and task-specific lamps for your desk or favourite reading nook.

Never underestimate the power of a different light bulb
Changing up light bulbs from ‘cool’ to ‘warm’ makes a noticeable difference to the ambience and feel of a room. When shopping for bulbs take a peek at the Kelvin temperature listed on the box. For a warmer, more golden glow, choose one with 2700 Kelvins or less. We’ve got the bulbs you’re looking for here.
Look for light-diffusing lamp shades
Light that scatters around the room is more flattering than light that's directed in a single spot. To get that ethereal glow, choose semi-opaque fabric lamp shades made of linen or cotton, or look for frosted glass sconces.
