One of the best ways to make an apartment feel more welcoming is through good lighting. If your apartment is feeling dark, we have some apartment bedroom lighting ideas, as well as ways to brighten up your entire apartment. If you’re looking for apartment lighting tips and tricks to improve your apartment’s lighting and atmosphere, follow our guide below!

Lighting isn’t always about brighter

Sometimes a room doesn’t need more brightness but rather softer or dimmer light. Dim light can set a more intimate mood or set the tone for a get-together. Brighter light is perfect for getting work done. A lamp that can do both is an excellent choice: turn it down when you need to, and turn up the light when you need to get work done.

Consider the bulb

On top of saving electricity, using the right kind of light bulb can drastically change the light in a room. LED and CFLs are both energy efficient and come in a variety of different hues. The soft blue light will give a room a more natural look. Depending on the effect you are going for, certain lights will also enhance colors in your room. LEDs often bring out reds and blues, so if you want to make something pop, consider changing out your lightbulbs. You can also consider smart LED lightbulbs that can be wirelessly controlled by Bluetooth. These smart bulbs can change colors, dim, or brighten using your smartphone.

Decide what kind of lamp your space needs

There are several different lamps to consider depending on what you need. A table lamp and a floor lamp produce entirely different results. A table lamp can be an accent piece as well as a source of lighting, and there are many different styles of floor lamps to fit a bunch of different aesthetics. Floor lamps also typically provide more light to a room, so if you are going for brightness, these might be your answers.

Make use of natural light

Depending on your apartment, you might also need to consider natural light. You can use curtains to limit the light and provide an accent to your room, or open the space to let the light in. Also, make sure you clean your windows often. You would be surprised at how much smudges can affect natural light.
