If style makes the man, lighting makes the room.
One of the most-common men’s decorating mistakes is inadequate lighting. Unfortunately, lighting can be fairly expensive, and if you live in an apartment, some lighting options aren’t as readily available, since they might require more permanent methods to install.
However, without adequate lighting, even the most-stylish, thoughtfully-decorated home will feel smaller, lifeless, and dull. Proper lights might be an investment, and not all lighting options are available to people living in a rental, but many options and techniques exist that will light up your space, no matter your home ownership status or personal budget.
Below, we’ve combined our best lighting advice with some of our favorite high/low lighting options, if you’re feeling inspired and ready to light up your home.
