Brighten Up: 3 Lighting Solutions for Your Apartment

Apartment lighting determines a huge part of the character of your living space, and you might feel like there are limited options out there to introduce some better light into your rooms, but don’t underestimate your choices! Your Kissling blog friends have some new ideas for you to consider that might help you find the right solution. A quick note before we dive in though: some of these ideas are a little invasive, so make sure to clear any serious construction with your friendly management staff before you start drilling into walls and making other significant or destructive changes.

Recessed Lighting

Recessed lights are fixtures that are actually built right into the ceiling, and they’re great for apartments with lower ceilings. Recessed lights can also shed a softer light on your space that helps to brighten things up without being too intense. They’re a great alternative to fluorescent ceiling lighting that can be just too overwhelming.



Track Lighting

Track lighting is a great change-up from your typical ceiling-hung light fixtures or standing lamps. It’s just a simple mounting system that holds lights suspended from the ceiling, but often allows for the freedom to change the direction of the light or adjust the lamps. If you have a DIY feel to your apartment, track lighting might be a perfect pairing since it shows off a little more hardware than typical light fixtures.

Wall Sconces

Wall-mounted lamps are another great example of a lighting solution for people with low ceilings or smaller apartments. They can also help with the direction and distribution of light in your room. Wall lamps aimed up at the ceiling will help diffuse light throughout your space and brighten up a room without being too intense.
