Having the desire to have a fresh and new looking home is something everyone wants but it can be expensive which is why many choose to never do so.

It would be best to get the same color and sheen and if you are able to, try and make sure all the fixtures are from the same company, that way they can all look the same.

Choose a ceiling fan, statement chandelier’s and lighting overhangs in the bathroom. If you are choosing lamps, make sure they are all cohesive. If you do not have lots of light options in your home, this is the perfect time add in can lights to brighten up the home.
