Unique Ways to Light Your Indoor Space

Most times, you turn a switch and the table lamp goes on, or you flip a switch and the chandelier or the ceiling-mounted light goes on. It gives you enough light to see and work by. But lighting is an essential part of your home’s decor and contributes to the atmosphere of a room like nothing else can. Here are some unique indoor lighting solutions to try.

Bring the Clouds Indoors

Why should you have to go outside to enjoy the beauty of the clouds? Now you can bring clouds indoors thanks to the wonders of LED lighting tucked into lanterns made of cotton and paper. The LED lights are battery-operated so you don’t have to plug them in. Better yet, they can be placed anywhere in the room. Use a smartphone to have the clouds change from the bright white of a sunny day to the deep purple of an approaching thunderstorm. Don’t forget to use your Bluetooth speaker to play appropriate music.

Add Some Neon Lights

Neon lights have been around for a surprisingly long time, and they can’t help but be the focal point of any room. No longer just for the windows of bars and pubs, they can be custom-made into just about any shape and any type of sign.

Use Wall Sconces to Paint Light Patterns

Directional wall sconces can be artfully arranged to paint patterns of light on otherwise uninspiring walls. Again, this is largely possible thanks to LED lighting, since the sconces can be battery or USB-powered.

Install an Infinity Light Tunnel

As the name suggests, this type of lighting creates an illusion of rows or shapes or circles of light that seems to go on forever. It’s also called an infinity mirror. Of course, it’s an illusion, done with mirrors, but people find infinity light tunnels irresistible and strangely calming. They can also change color and be paired with sound.

Put a Light in the Corner

Corners used to be either ignored or problematic, as spiders seem to love to build their webs there. But now, again thanks to LED technology, corners can be lit up with colorful accent lighting. Just install an LED strip, and your overlooked corner becomes a focal point.

Turn a Room Into a Planetarium

Nowadays, no one needs to travel outside their home to turn a bedroom or any room into a planetarium. Your room can be turned into an ocean, complete with aquatic life or a stimulating light show.

If you’re a little bored with the state of the lighting in your home, consider adding something unique and memorable to your rooms’ lighting schemes. For creative LED lighting, neon lighting or other outside-the-box lighting ideas in Santa Cruz, CA, give us a call at Fisher Electric.
