Let Your Love Shine with These Valentine’s Day Inspired Lighting Ideas
Add Ambiance with a Dimmer
Adding dimmers throughout your home will allow you to alter the mood in any room with a simple twist. Dimmers also conserve energy and extend the life of your bulbs.
Turn down the Wattage
Opt for lower wattage or lower lumen bulbs in areas where you’d like to add a little ambiance. Save brighter bulbs for reading lamps and work areas. This saves on energy as well.
Set the Mood with Fire
The soft romantic glow of a fireplace and candles create a warm, cozy Valentine’s Day atmosphere that’s sure to have your sweetheart snuggling up next to you.
Add a Rosy Glow
Give your usual lights a short reprieve and swap them for a few soft pink incandescent bulbs. They will soften and warm the room with a perfect, Valentine-inspired shade.
Adding glamorous lightbulbs to your décor adds instant romance. Look for multi-faceted bulb options in LED and incandescent, amber marble incandescents, or stained glass bulbs if you’re feeling extra-adventurous.
Valentine’s Day heart mason jars offer a simple and sweetly hand-made gift for your honey. All you need is a string of LED lights and a few simple items you may have around the house.
Add Romance with Holiday Lights
