Whether your basement is a storage zone or a full-fledged man-cave, chances are the space could use a little extra lighting. Since basements rarely have windows, they rely entirely on light fixtures to provide illumination – and if you're down there frequently, incandescent bulbs might be costing you a pretty penny. Instead, try switching to LED rope lighting.
LED rope lighting is simple to install, which makes it perfect for the basement. Try stringing it up near the ceiling for extra light whenever and wherever you need it. And since LED lighting is so durable, you can be sure it'll turn on – whether you're down in the basement every night after work or you only head down every few months to get decorations out of storage.
Plus, LED lighting's glow is designed to mimic natural daylight – which makes it ideal for a space that rarely sees the sun. Your basement will instantly feel more open, more spacious and more cheerful than ever before.
For those hard-to-see corners, you can also try LED strip lights. Strip lighting fits perfectly into nooks and crannies so you'll never be fumbling around in the cobwebs.
