3 Ways to Use Lighting to Make Your Rental Property Look Larger

As a property owner, you want to make sure that you’re getting as much money as possible out of your rental property. However, renovating a space to add more room can be expensive and, in some cases, impossible if your property is located in a tightly-packed urban area. Luckily, our Philly property management company knows that there are a few lighting tricks you can use to help your space feel bigger at little-to-no extra cost. Use our tips to help improve your rental property’s aesthetic value!

  • Take advantage of natural lighting. Natural lighting makes interior spaces look larger quickly and easily. Avoid placing heavy or dark curtains in your rental properties, as these can block off light even when the window is open and make it more difficult for light to reflect and fill the space. Placing mirrors across from sources of natural light will open the space even further.
  • Use the right light bulbs. Did you know that different light bulbs can affect how large a room looks? It’s true! If the interior of your property has overhead lighting, try swapping out current fluorescent or LED bulbs for incandescent bulbs; these light bulbs emit a warm, inviting glow that makes rooms look more spacious and inviting.
  • Take advantage of task lighting. Does your property have a room with no lighting fixtures or lightning that leaves a dark corner? Task lighting fixtures are affordable to install and can quickly clear up lighting issues, making the room appear larger.
