December is nearly here, and that means that 2018 isn’t too far behind. Hopefully, 2017 has been a good year for you and your family, and as you look back on the year that was, we hope that you have some things for which you can be thankful. Looking ahead, you may have plans to renovate or update your home in the New Year, and that can mean new lighting, new furniture, and much more. At Accent Lighting in Wichita, we can help you find the right fixtures for every room, and we’ll gladly answer any questions you have about the selection in our showroom.
Which Room Needs the Most Attention?
You may not have plans to swap out every fixture in the house, but you do want to focus on one or two rooms in particular. Perhaps the lights in your master bathroom could use an update, and putting in new vanity lights and wall sconces can make the space feel like new. If your living room lamps are looking a little dated, switching them out for modern options can reinvent and reinvigorate your house.
Keeping your renovations to one or two rooms can make the project seem more manageable, as well as easier to budget. Once you know which rooms you want to focus on, we can help you find the perfect fixtures!
Making a Budget
One of the biggest challenges a homeowner can face when updating a house is making a budget. You may not know where to start when it comes to lighting, and that’s okay. The experts in our showroom can help you price certain items, and they’ll gladly answer any questions you may have about a specific fixture or a particular style. It’s good to come in with a number in mind so that you can gauge how much it’s actually going to cost to do all the upgrades that you want to do. It’s also important to be flexible and to allow yourself to change your mind on certain things, either because they don’t fit the look you’re going for, or because they simply don’t fit into your current budget.
Taking it One Step at a Time
Before you dive into shopping for new light fixtures and begin having them installed throughout the house, take the time to assess your home and decide what truly needs to be updated. As we stated before, sticking to one or two rooms can make the project more manageable, but you’ll want to be sure you’re not putting the cart before the horse and changing too much or adding too much light to a certain space. You want to maintain the balance in each room, and taking it one step at a time – assessing, pricing, budgeting, and so on – can make the process much less stressful.
