Some houses can be dark and dingy. If your house is like this, then this can have an adverse effect on your mood and emotions. Why keep yourself in the dark when you can light up your home in many ways? Yes. You don’t have to stick boring old light bulbs and florescent lamps. Here are 5 unique ideas to light up your home.



Candle sconces. These are brackets that come in different shapes and designs and are used to hold candles. They can be placed on mirrors, stuck up the wall or on picture frames. Candle sconces can give your home a warm and romantic air. However if you think that candles are too unsafe then you can opt for wall sconces. Instead of candles, they utilize bulbs that run on electricity. Wall sconces come in different designs and colors. To make your room more inviting, use yellow light bulbs.

Lamp posts. If you have a huge front or back yard then you’ll need to light it up with lamp posts. This can illuminate the outside of your home and make it a less likely target for thieves. Plus it would be safer for you and your family as you’ll have an easier time getting around. Lamp posts come in many designs, colors and height.
Deck lights. If you live in a huge house with a big deck then having deck lights can work to your advantage. There are many sizes and shapes when it comes to deck lights. They can also come in different colors. And since they often have a low voltage, they don’t generate as much in terms of electricity compared to regular lights. Aside from illuminating your house at night they provide a nice ambiance for sitting outside during clear nights.
Lanterns. Aside from deck lights, putting lanterns in your back yard is another nice way to light up your home. Lanterns often come in different geometric patterns. They can even be in the shape of different animals such as bird or butterflies. Lanterns can be used to light up your home both indoors and outdoors.
Playing around with the lighting is one of the easiest ways to add pizzaz to your home. So let your creative side lose and light up your home in these 4 unique ways.
