If you live in an older home, you know the challenges of low or insufficient lighting. You’ve probably invested in several lamps, added light kits to ceiling fans, and discovered some creative wiring in the process. LED retrofitting or new fixtures is the next step to dramatically changing the functionality and comfort of your home, and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to do it.
Do any of these situations sound familiar?
• No lighting fixtures in the ceiling
• A ceiling fan with no light kit
• A room with a single dim light under a smoked glass cover
• Plaster ceilings and/or walls that complicate modifications
• Old track lighting that makes it feel like 1970
• A chandelier that flickers when someone walks on the floor above it
LED Retrofit and New Fixture Options
Lighting is often overlooked until aging eyes begin to strain or you’re ready to put your house on the market. Modernizing at any point can reduce energy consumption and maintenance while improving overall light quality. You can even add creative light features to your home that add both value and interest.
Basic Types of Modern Lighting Fixtures
• Surface Mount
• Under Cabinet
