Lighting Ideas to Brighten Your Basement
Don’t let a finished basement still feel dark and cold. Light up this space to create a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere with these lighting ideas we found in Better Homes and Gardens.
- Track lighting works great in a basement because it is easy to install and can be adjusted specifically to light certain areas such as a desk or reading area.
- Installing several miniature recessed can fixtures in rows with separate dimmers allows you to achieve the right ambiance depending on how you are enjoying your basement.
- Here’s an innovative idea: Take recessed light panels usually used on ceilings and hang them symmetrically above a fireplace or on an empty wall.
- To create a soothing, uplighting scheme, choose various fixtures such as lamps, sconces and track lighting that shine light upwards toward the ceiling.
Little Rock residents looking to brighten their basement should visit the Light Innovations showroom at 8316 West Markham. We have everything you could possibly need from track lighting to sconce lighting to recessed lighting and more.
