Brighten up your basement with new light fixtures and lamps. Basements are often underlit areas of the home, and often have limited windows. But with the right lighting, your basement can be not only be more appealing to hang out in but safer as well.
With potentially low ceilings, you'll want to opt for low-profile ceiling lights such as flush or semi-flush light fixtures. Alternatively some low-profile ceiling fans may offer a built in light. If you're really low on height then simple pot lights or recessed lights can work.
Moving away from the ceiling, look to add wall sconces to light up the basement walls. Another great option are floor lamps, which offer a higher wattage bright light. Place floor lamps near the seating areas, or in corners. Table lamps either side of a couch wan work wonders as well for your more finished basement.
Mount a basement light fixture to the ceiling to light a large area. Or position it over a table or island. Just remember to leave enough head-room.
Stand a basement lamp on the floor or on low furniture. It will light the nearby area of the room and add ambient light. Great in a corner or next to seating.
Attach a basement wall light to the wall for ambient lighting. A good option near to traffic areas or next to seating. Complements a central light fixture.
Decorate with basement decor to furnish your living space. Clocks, mirrors, cushions, rugs. Enjoy the comforts of a modern basement.
