- Two lighting fixtures per room
Nothing makes a room look unfinished faster than bare windows. Not to mention, you lack privacy. Whether you go with blinds or simple curtains and curtain rods, be sure to add window treatments to every room in your new apartment. Do not know which brand to buy? Choose a simple neutral shade. You can always add another curtain in a geometric print or bold.
Replacing the boring, basic lighting equipment can make a big difference in how your room looks and works.
Some ideas for lighting equipment are –
- A floor lamp
- Pendant Light
- Stylish Air Conditioning Switch
- Wall Fixture
- Table Lamp
- Floor Lamp
Battery-Powered, LED Lighting under the Cabinet
As a rule of thumb, try to have two different light sources in each room. For example, add floor lamps and lighting fixtures in your living room, table lamps and pendants in your bedroom, and ceiling lighting and lighting fixtures under your kitchen cabinet.
