Choose Colorful Light Bulbs

The simplest and most affordable way to incorporate colorful lighting into your space is to switch out the light bulbs you use. You can find LED bulbs that offer a wide range of vibrant colors and hues, which can be used to enhance a specific part of the room or add color to your overhead lighting.

Focus on Specific Areas

Choose specific areas of your home, such as a cozy reading nook or a counter space in the kitchen, to infuse with colorful light. By having focal points, you can create a visual impact that will add depth and character to your room.

Get Creative with Lighting Fixtures

Think beyond traditional lamp shades and light fixtures. Instead, consider making your own DIY lighting fixtures. You can use mason jars, lampshade frames, or colorful glass vases and turn them into beautiful custom lighting fixtures that will add personality and a unique touch to your decor. Don't forget all you can do with candles and candle holders, too, to make beautiful lighting you'll love. Shop at M&M Lighting in Houston today.

Play with Contrast

Use colorful lighting to contrast with neutral surroundings, such as with white walls or a neutral-colored sofa, to create a statement piece. This can elevate the entire room with just a few simple, colorful lighting accents.

Experiment with Lighting Angles

The angle of the light can have a significant impact on how the colors of your space appear. Experiment with upward lighting, angled lighting, and spotlights, guiding the light to create unique shapes and patterns, that will help your room look more inviting and appealing.
