Tips for lighting your new apartment
If you are moving from a home into an apartment, you know what a process it can be. Not only do you have to pack up all your things, but in many cases, you also have to think about redecorating your new space. And before you think about what type of art and furniture you want to purchase, it's a good idea to start with the lighting.
After all, no lights means you will likely be moving in all your stuff in the dark. Before jumping to any decision as to what type of lighting fixtures you want, it's important to assess your new living space. What type of decorating scheme do you want? If you choose a modern and contemporary theme, make sure that you choose luminaries that fit this description. Modern wall sconces are a great option for apartments. Install two of these fixtures right above a small console table for a look that frames this piece of furniture. Modern pendant lights are another choice. The great thing about these fixtures is that they come in a wide variety of styles. Many are sold in vibrant colors, such as bright red and yellow. These happy hues look great against white or neutral furniture. What is important to remember about lighting an apartment is that you don't need to overdo it. Essentially, less is more and quality comes before quantity.
Overcrowding your living space with too many luminaires is never a good look. In fact, it can even make your apartment look somewhat chintzy. Selecting a few statement luminaires will ensure that your decorating scheme makes a big impact.
