Good lighting makes a big difference in any room. That’s because a well-lit home looks bright and beautiful, and serves to keep the mood of the occupants bright and jovial. Good lighting also changes the perspective, as well as the overall appearance of a place. The best part about lighting is that you don’t have to be an interior designer to install it.  All you have to do is get yourself the right lighting products, such as those sold by Simple lighting.  Let’s now go through 3 awesome tips for installing simple lighting in your home.

1. Install LED Lighting
LED lights provide a good light source and act as a design element as well. They are energy 
efficient and much easier to install, as compared to other types of lights. The first step when installing these lights is identifying where in the house you want to place them. Identify unique places such as behind paintings, or under cabinet drawers if you are to place them in your kitchen. Once you have identified the location, mark the entire area to determine where you will place the wires. You can then identify a secret electrical source for your LED lights. The next step is to drill holes in the locations you marked and proceed with the installation.

2. Install Bedroom Lights
Your bedroom should be the most comfortable area in your house. In addition to a cozy bed with warm and soft fabrics, it is important that you have proper lighting that will not interfere with your sleep or other activities such as reading. You need cozy warm lights that are just bright enough to enable you to read if you love reading during bedtime, and not too bright to prevent you from sleeping. Have the reading lamps placed at the side of the bed, but not pointed directly towards it. Insert a small tinted low wattage bulb that mimics a candlelight but produces a little bit lighter than a candle. Make sure that the wires are hidden from plain sight to ensure that your bedroom is not entangled with electric wires. Once everything is in place, place the switch just next to the bed to enable you to reach it easily, when you want to switch the lights on or off.

3. Install Garden Lights
Your garden is not complete without proper garden lights. That’s because there are times when you just want to catch a breath of fresh air outside your house. Doing so outside, next to a well-lit garden is a perfect idea. For both security and aesthetics, it is important that you install lights at strategic places in your garden. Have a mixture of both spotlights and floodlights. Spotlights enhance particular features in your garden, while floodlights serve to illuminate the entire garden. Before deciding which light to fix to, test them using a flashlight that you can switch from spot to flood modes. This test will help you identify how different forms of lighting styles appear in different areas in your garden. Identify where to place lights and where the wires are going to pass through. With outdoor lighting, you can decide to use solar power or connect your lights with a power source from your house. The best option is to have a mix of both for different seasons.
