With December nearly half over, you’re probably thinking about the upcoming holidays and the New Year. You may have plans to renovate your home in 2018, or you may simply want to add a few new design touches to each room. One of the best ways to improve a room is to update the lighting so that people can see better, that the decor is better highlighted, and that the space functions better. At Wettstein’s in La Crosse, we have a fantastic selection of lighting options, including lamps, sconces, and much more. If you’re thinking about redesigning your home, visit us today!
Which Room Needs the Most Work?
There may be one room in your house that needs the most attention, and that can be the best place to start when it comes to adding new lighting. Perhaps you’ve been using your kitchen all year with just one overhead fixture and no under cabinet lights, and you’re tired of how dim and dingy the space looks. With a new ceiling fixture and some under cabinet lighting, you can brighten the space and make it more inviting. If you’re adding a kitchen island, a new pendant light can illuminate the countertop and provide light for a number of purposes.
Maybe there’s a guest bathroom in your house that still looks like it does the day it was built, which may have been 20 to 30 years ago (or longer). If the fixtures haven’t been updated since the 80s, a new year is a great time to find new lighting. Modern sconces, vanity lights, and recessed options can transform even the oldest bathroom into a beautiful and relaxing space.
Deciding on a Budget
One of the biggest obstacles that homeowners face when picking out new lighting is the budget. They may have some grand design in mind, but once they begin choosing fixtures, they realize the amount they’ve budgeted won’t cover everything on their list. It can feel quite defeating to have to put things back or leave things out, simply because there aren’t enough funds for the project.
The best way to avoid this problem is to set out a comprehensive budget before you begin shopping. At Wettstein’s, we’ll gladly help you price things out and decide which fixtures fit your current plan. You may have one or two rooms that you want to focus on now, and you can save the other rooms in your home for the future. No matter what your plan and budget are, we’ll be here to help every step of the way!
If you’re thinking about how you can improve your home in 2018, why not start with the lighting? At Wettstein’s, we carry a wonderful variety of fixtures for every room, and we can even help you find the right options for your landscaping. If you don’t have time to visit our showroom, you can schedule a consultation with a certified lighting expert.
