Home Decorating Tip #5 – Use good lighting effects

Chandelier_2.jpgFind what needs to be lit (is it the room, or just a painting?), and a way that enhances the atmosphere.

Ten Tips for Better Interior Decorating and Home Improvement

Here is a list of 10 tips for Interior Decorating and home improvement that I thought I would share with the world. I will list the tips tips here, and then over the next few days (possibly 10) I will post articles that elaborate on these tips…

Lighting your garden with Solar Lights

SolarLight1.jpgOne nice and CHEAP way to light up your garden is to use Solar Powered Lights. These Solar Lights can be easy to install (put it together and stick it in the ground), and cost nothing once bought (unless you need to replace the batteries or bulbs, which shouldn’t happen very often).

I’m sure you can get solar lights with more powerful light bulbs, but the ones I bought are just there to accentuate and add a little bit of style to the garden.

You can even get solar fountains to add to your garden, which I think is a pretty clever idea, but if you already have a fountain or water feature, you could add a solar light or 2 around your feature, and voila, it is visible and highlighted all night. Now that’s just GREAT for those evening parties or dinners.
