But the truth is, you can actually cut costs even if you’re planning to change every single detail in the room, you just need to know what to look for and where to look for it. Below are a few tips on how you can save money when buying lights.
Buy LED Lights You can’t go wrong with LED bulbs. Although they are considerably more expensive compared to other bulbs in the market, they actually cost less to use and maintain. LED lights use a fraction of the power incandescent bulbs use to create the same amount of brightness, so a regular 100 watt incandescent can be replaced with a 10 watt LED. In less than a year, you can get your money’s worth in savings.
Check Flea Markets or Garage Sales If you’re cutting cost, you might want to check out flea markets or garage sales when looking for new lights. You can find a number of interesting and one of a kind lamps or lights in this place. If you’re lucky, you might even find lights that have never been used before. Change the old bulbs with new LED light bulbs and you’re good to go.
Go D.I.Y There’s something really comforting about do it yourself projects, especially when it something to do with decorating. Let the inner designer in you shine and make your own light fixture. You can purchase the basic elements of a lamp at any home improvement store. Play around with it with some paint or glue on some colorful rocks and stones on it. Be creative and make something unique.
