If we're going to talk about styling homes, it's no secret that lighting can make or break a space. It has the ability to change the vibe of a room just as it does the perceived size of a certain area. To inspire you to play with the power of lights and shadows, here are some mood lighting ideas you can try:

Turn your standard bar counter into a cozy hangout with a few indoor plants and under-cabinet lighting. This helps create extra warmth–especially if your space has a lot of wooden elements and neutral pieces.

If you have a penchant for everything retro, consider upgrading your mural with colorful LED lights. Not only will it set a 70s ambiance to your room, it saves you from having to hang up wall decor as it is already a statement on its own.

Tired of using printed wallpaper when sprucing up the bathroom? Do it better with chevron pattern backlights. You can even hire a pro to add settings that can help your change it from yellow to white light so you're free to choose depending on your mood.

You can highlight unique shelves by lining it with lights. This can also help draw attention to decor pieces or vignettes that you want guests to notice, too.

The easiest way to transform your room with lights is with an eye-catching neon sign. Consider framing it with dark-colored borders or even plants to balance out the look.
