Brr! Utah is filled with extreme temperature variations and very cold nights from December through February. These months are here which means you are probably experiencing improper lighting in your home.

Do you struggle with indoor winter lighting because you have too many bulbs in your rooms that are too bright or too dim? If this is the case and you want to stick to an indoor lighting budget, all you need to do is switch out the bulbs.

This can create different lighting designs in any room without breaking the bank. For example, if a lamp makes an unwanted glare, you can replace the bulb with a reflector bulb. Now, you can even find types of lightbulbs that have different settings so you don’t have to keep replacing them when winter rolls around.

2. Absorb Light With Your Furniture

Living room lights can be especially hard to control in the window if you have surfaces made of glass, tile, metal, or glossy paint. These sheen surfaces will reflect light while textured or matte surfaces absorb light.

If you have overly bright areas, but can’t afford new furniture, start a DIY project. Darker textured surfaces absorb light better so use your indoor lighting budget to buy paint to make your furniture brand new.

3. Use Table Lamps

Winter lighting designs should scream cozy because the weather is so cold, and using table lamps can do just that. A table lamp with a warm shade color can create a cozy glow. Instead of a white shade, look for colors like pearl, ivory, parchment, or alabaster.

4. Light Candles

Instead of worrying about types of lightbulbs that can bring in a cozy indoor winter lighting vibe, try candles. This cost-effective way to make everything look magical could be just the lighting design that brings your rooms together. Whether you are worried about living room lights or bedroom lights, a candle can trump them all.

Candles give off a relaxed vibe that no other lighting fixture does. You can place candles anywhere around the house for great smells and great vibes. They are also classy enough to add a design aspect to your home.

5. Dimmer Switches
