Beautiful lamps for more light this winter

Jan 29, 2015

Enhance your apartment’s space and atmosphere with the following innovative lamp options and styles. Timbercreek Communities’ Windsor apartments are located in some of the most sought-after areas of the city including properties overlooking the Detroit River, within walking distance to the University of Windsor and in bustling downtown Windsor.

Go Bold

Brighten up and enhance any room in your apartment with a bright, bold or patterned lampshade. Bold lampshade prints and colours are back this season and are a simple and affordable way to add a quirky sense of personality to any space in your home. Fabric lamp shades are another fun option and are a great tool to add additional texture to a living room or bedroom. Homesense is less than a ten-minute drive from Timbercreek’s 3905 Riverside Drive East Apartments and is a great place to pick up stylish yet affordable lampshades.

DIY Lamp

Lighting fixtures can be made out of almost any material. Why not unleash some creativity and create your own lamp or lampshade? You can utilize around-the-house items, paint and dollar store items to create a one-of-a-kind piece of décor. Dollarama is located less than a ten-minute walk from Timbercreek Communities’ 7890 St. Rose Avenue Apartments and is a great place to pick up supplies for your do-it-yourself lamp. A full list of DIY Lamp Projects is available at the Better Homes and Gardens website.TC Windsor Lamps

Try a Floor Lamp

Floor lamps are a great option when space is at a premium. Choose floor lamps with smaller profiles and pay attention to where and how the light shines in the room. A great tip is to place a floor lamp on one side of your sofa and a table lamp on the other. Believe it or not this asymmetry actually opens up a room and maximizes brightness.

Choosing the Right Light bulb

Bulbs vary by their type of technology, amount of energy they use, colour of light they emit, heat they give off and the amount of light they produce. Make sure to choose the correct bulb wattage, as a higher wattage can produce excess heat and is a potential fire hazard.

Make the most out of your space with great lighting options that will brighten up your home all year long.
