One home essential that makes the difference between being able to cook, clean and find things easily and efficiently is the lighting situation in your apartment. When you move in to your apartment, you will most likely need to bring in your own light sources in addition the fixtures that already come with your apartment. Check out these tips for making your apartment lighter and brighter that are rental and property manager-friendly!
Task Lamps – If you need more light in your kitchen, bathroom, closet, or pretty much any room in your apartment, the easiest solution is to set up a task lamp. These flexible and portable lamps are convenient and can be plugged in a safe spot to add some more light where you need it in common work areas or go-to places to find household items you need.
Stick on lights – “Stick and click” LED lights are so convenient. These stick-on lights are battery operated, so no cords or plugs necessary, and they are inexpensive. Put them wherever you need more light in your apartment, including pantries, cabinets, closets or any dark corner in any room.
Under cabinet lights – Especially useful for smaller kitchens, overhead lights can be placed under cabinets which create dim areas in common food prep locations. Consider LED “tape lighting” which is an affordable strip of LED lighting which can be adhered to surfaces for extra light where you need it. These lights can range from as cheap as $15 and go up to $30 – $40 with enhanced quality.
