Investigating features that can be added onto your existing light fixtures is also a great choice when re-inventing your home lighting scheme. For example, if you have sconces placed in your home which shine plain white light, a quick, cheap solution would be to invest in bulbs that mimic the light of candles. The flicker produced by these bulbs and the softer nature of the light can easily make a room more welcoming. Accenting features already present in your home is another important point to remember. Mantles, pictures, or interesting architecture can be accented with a few simple lights. Track lighting is a valuable tool - it works well in lighting artwork as well as softly lighting a mantle. The ease of installation is also an attraction for track lighting.
Up above your head, in your ceiling you should have three wires ready to be reconnected. Also you should have a new fixture hanger device in with your new package. If your old light already had one, great, it is already installed. If not you will have to put the new one in. It looks like a pivot with screws on both ends. These allow for adjustment of your new fixture. Install this hanger using two screws provided or use your old ones. Once you have the pivot installed it should have two screws dropping down for you to connect your new base. Next it’s time to connect the green wire. Your fixture probably has a bare copper wire available for the grounding. Then connect the white to the white. You can use the old nuts, or the new wire nuts if you prefer. Then connect the black or red wire. Now make sure your connections are tight. Tug on the wires, trying to pull them out of the wirenut. This will assure a solid connection. If it pulls out, reconnect it and pull again. Strike three is better than a house fire, so reconnect it again and try to make it very tight. Once its wired, you can mount the base to the ceiling now. This can be very tricky and even frustrating. Be patient and get the screws through the insulation and twist the base to lock the screws in place, then gently tighten them just enough to hold the fixture snug to your ceiling.
The light fixtures that really help to bring the personal touch to a home are usually those that are placed for accent. Accent lights are well-placed fixtures, usually wall sconces, table lamps, under-cabinet lights, or pendants, which illuminate the special characteristics of your home. Under-cabinet lights are often used in kitchens over the counter-tops where food is prepared, which enable the fixtures to both illuminate the work area and also add ambient light to the room. Wall sconces are some of the most flexible light fixtures when placing for accent; these fixtures come in a number of different styles, from the simple contemporary to the elegant stained glass. Wall sconces also provide up-light, which is easier on the eye. Also, these lights supply decoration on simple walls by using either plain or colored light, depending on the style of fixture chosen.
Most of all, keep in mind that lighting your home does not have to empty your wallet. Do not feel as though all points have to be taken care of instantly, instead make it a constant effort. Also, many lights such as track lighting can be installed with little trouble if the directions are carefully followed. Avoiding installation costs can save money and empower you to make your home lighting renovations on your own schedule. Lighting is essential in every aspect of living and so this of course is important in our place of dwelling. Proper home lighting can contributes to the improvement in the aesthetic quality of someone’s home. Not only can it adds to the functionality but also it can also bring out an aesthetic and sensual enjoyment for those under the roof. Needless to mention that proper lighting is also a major factor in establishing a comfortable ambiance in any home.
