“New light fixtures are great ways to change your room look,” Modica said. “If you have boring light fixtures or not enough light (a very common problem), new and more lighting will make your room feel so much better.”
For high ceilings, Modica recommends chandeliers or pendant lights.
“Chandeliers and pendant lights are dramatic,” she said. “If you want a pendant but don’t have the hardwiring for them, you can find ones that plug in. Just pick up some cord covering at Amazon for $20 or so.”
“Floor lamps in corners that are dark or need task lighting — such as near chairs where people sit — will help your entire room feel brighter — literally,” Modica continued. “New lights can range from $20 to $150, depending on the size of the light. I love IKEA and Wayfair for budget-priced lighting.”
