Bounce That Light Around

When we bought our home, there were seven lights installed:

  • One in the kitchen
  • One in the hall
  • One in the bathroom
  • One in each room of the basement

We had to rely on lamps in all of the other rooms. Over the years we have added light fixtures and a ceiling fan, but we still have the original medicine cabinet in the bathroom.

When I switched from incandescent light bulbs, the bathroom was noticeably darker. In order to brighten the space, I placed two small, oval mirrors under each light bulb. It reflects the light up to the ceiling, where it bounces around the room.

It really helped.

Use mirrors under light fixtures to increase light.
