Easy Lighting Updates That Will Transform Your Entire Space
We're sharing simple, illuminating ways to update your kitchen, living room and bedroom — no demo required.
Sometimes, just getting started on a renovation project is the hardest part. You know that something needs to change, but what? And how? Updating your home, whether you're renting or on a tight budget (or both!), is certainly rewarding, but despite your eagerness to make changes, remember that making small, incremental fixes is more manageable, less stressful and easier on your wallet.
Which leads us back to the initial dilemma of where to begin? Here's a bright idea: Try updating the light fixtures in a few main rooms, like the kitchen, living room and bedroom, to instantly improve the look, feel and brightness of your space.
We turned to Hunter Fan Company for inspiration and stylish finds that will freshen up your space with the flip of a switch. Read on to see our product picks and design ideas for replacing outdated lighting.
Kitchen and Dining Lighting Ideas
You've heard it time and time again: The kitchen is the heart of the home. Certainly, most of us spend a great deal of time cooking, snacking and gathering in the kitchen, so it makes sense to start here by swapping dim, uninspiring ceiling lights for a statement-making-yet-practical chandelier or grouping of pendant lights. Chandeliers generally work best in the dining room where mood lighting is more important, whereas pendant lights really shine over a kitchen island where they help define the space and provide brighter task lighting. We found stunning options for different styles, from homey farmhouse to contemporary classics.
Living Room Lighting Ideas
Coziness is key in the living room. If you have high ceilings, a large lantern-style pendant will bring warmth to make the space feel more intimate. Shorter ceiling heights can make your living room feel cramped, but proper lighting will help add charm and brightness.
Bedroom Lighting Ideas
Ceiling fans are a popular option for the bedroom, and we understand why. The calming sound of a fan humming or the gentle breeze on a warm summer night can you help stay comfortable all night long. We love Hunter Fan Company's sleek options for style and function. But if you want to zhush up the bedroom a bit more with ambient lighting, hang a pendant on either side of the bed to get that luxe hotel vibe. You'll free up nightstand space and elevate the room's overall aesthetic.
