This is an unfortunate picture. Unfortunate because I OWN THIS LIGHT FIXTURE! I can't believe I am making this public, truly humiliating, but I am trying to prove a point. If I were putting my home up for sale, this would be the first of many light fixtures to go!
Lighting is an extremely prominent feature in a home. It can date (see above photo) or elevate a room to a new status instantly! I am often surprised by how many clients comment on fixtures as they tour a home. With gloom plaguing the skies, lighting your home is a especially important component of selling this time of year.
A few tips...
- When replacing a fixture make sure to hire a licensed electrician
- Make sure the finishes on your fixtures match or coordinate with your homes decor
- Ask your realtor or home stager for suggestions
- To save money, don't swap a ceiling fan for a ceiling fan. A flush mount fixture may work for less than half the cost!
