You come home, tired from work, and you just want to sit back and relax. However, the lighting in your room just makes this impossible, especially if it’s too bright. Instead of just turning all the lights off and going to sleep, postponing any after-work chores, there are a few things that you can do to keep the room well-lit while maintaining a relaxed ambience. 

Below are a few tips. Install Dimmers Dimmers are handy little gadgets that you can purchase at almost any hardware or home improvement store. They cost a few dollars but you’re going to need a tech to install one for you. It’s this small knob that can be connected to the main light’s system that allows you to control the brightness of the light by turning the knob. A relaxing ambience is usually dimly lit, but you don’t want to sacrifice your main lighting and make the room too dark, so dimmers are perfect. They’re compatible with most kinds of lights, even new ones like LEDs. 

Bring out the Candles If you really want that dimly-lit, romantic effect, you can’t go wrong with candle light. Of course, having lit candles isn’t really an option for some, especially if you have kids and pets around. They’re also really tedious to use since you have to watch over them and be mindful about the flames. There is a trick to getting a candle-lit effect without actually lighting a candle. Use battery powered candles made with LED bulbs. These even flicker and mimic candle light very nicely, plus you don’t have to worry about the fire hazard.

Main lights off, lamps on Your lamps aren’t just there to help you when you’re reading or as extra decorative detail to your space. Use these as lighting and turn off your main lights. Most table lamps and floor lamps have a pretty thick lamp cover which defuses the light for a softer beam. For comments and questions, feel free to contact our customer support hotline.
