The Lighting Hack HGTV's Leanne Ford Uses To Keep Her Home Bright
Rewiring your home can cost up to $9,000, but Leanne Ford from "Restored by the Fords," is an expert in lighting spaces without spending an unnecessary
amount of cash.
Ford’s favorite way to brighten up a home is by using oversized lighting fixtures. "Your lighting should be bigger than you think you have room for," she says.
It looks disproportionate to have a large room lit with nothing but a tiny overhead light or a small table lamp. Instead, opt for a modern chandelier or light fixture.
The kitchen and bathroom should have the most lighting (about 70 to 80 lumens per square foot). On the other hand, the bedroom and living room only need about 10 to
20 lumens.
