Staying at home is nice but that means we also notice a lot of things around the house. We declutter, dust surfaces, re-arrange furniture, and even dab paint on surfaces where there are cracks. But one thing that we often miss is the lighting. You can highlight one area or create a different ambiance in the next room with some new bulbs. Here are some lighting tips you can consider, as some bulbs here and there can totally change the atmosphere in your home.

What Lighting Can Do?
Maximizing good lighting goes above and beyond safety and function. Think of it as the missing thing that ties all the design elements together. It forms part of the style and the overall comfort of any home.
While this is often overlooked by many, Lumina Homes ensures that they bring together safety, style, and function in each of the homes they build for the Filipino family.
“We, in Lumina Homes, are committed to going beyond what is expected of an affordable housing community. We will continue to maximize the developments’ potential in providing residents the quality home and life they deserve,” Engr. Joemi Tan, Division Head of Lumina Homes in North Luzon and Mindanao, said.
4 Lighting Tips You Should Consider
Now that you’re on a quest to decorate your home and make it truly your own, Lumina Homes has four lighting tips to customize the feel of your home.
Know the different bulb color temperature
Aside from wattage, it’s worth exploring different bulb color temperatures. Choosing the right color temperature might just be what you need to switch up the mood in your home.
Need to relax more? You may opt for soft or warm white bulbs if you want a warm and cozy feeling in your home. If you want to give off an energetic feel in your home, you can play around with bright white or daylight bulbs.
Explore multi-purpose lighting fixtures
If you’re looking to start a minimalist home or if you have limited space, try a multi-purpose lighting fixture.
When shopping for light and decor pieces, why not hit two birds with one stone by buying a lighting fixture that matches the design you’re gunning for.
For example, a pendant light or a geometric-shaped chandelier would amplify a minimalist-looking home. For study table lighting, you may opt for lamps that double as pen holders or fans.
Go old school with candles
Candles have never been absent in Filipino homes. But now, they have taken a more stylish aesthetic. When they are lit up, candles bring a sense of comfort–even more so when they are scented. Aromatherapy candles can even bring relief.
They make your home extra cozy, especially when it’s date night or when you have friends over. Just make sure they are placed away from flammable objects and won’t be left unattended when you light them up.
Clean the windows
Lighting isn’t all about bulbs and fixtures that require electricity. Your windows can be a huge part of it of your lighting design during the day. To make your house ten times more beautiful and homier, clear windows might just be the trick you need.
By cleaning your windows and screens, you can let natural light illuminate your home. Opening clean windows also allow fresh air and the beautiful outdoor scene to come in. This simple trick can instantly change the mood and ambiance of any room in the house without breaking the bank.
