Cosy Home Lighting Tip #2: Invest in Dimmable Background Lighting

Dimmable lights are a game-changer for changing the atmosphere in a room. Not only do they let you control the brightness, but you can also add in a variety of other lights to accompany the level of brightness. For nights spent reading or playing games, up the brightness and enjoy the glow. For lazy movie nights, dim the lights and turn on a lamp or two for an additional cosy glow. Most light fixtures work with a dimmer switch, so the switch-over process is usually hassle-free.

Cosy Home Lighting Tip #3: The More Lamps, The Better!

Achieve the ultimate warm and merry glow by filling your desired room with as many lights you can get away with. Mix it up with different size lamps and statement lighting to get a variety of glows and place them on different surfaces and in as many corners you can find. Ensure that the lights aren’t too harsh, and you will have the perfect warm glow for laidback nights in.

Cosy Home Lighting Tip #4.Change-up the Lampshades

If you want a quick fix to make your room more winter-ready, simply invest in a few more lampshades. Lampshades in warm colours and tones will cast an inviting glow around the room. When shopping for new lampshades, look for traditional autumn colours; such as red, orange, yellow and mustard. Not only will they give the room a visual switch up, but they will also do wonders with your lighting.
