Many people go into homeownership with the intention of staying in their home for the rest of their lives. With that said, this intention oftentimes proves to be misguided, as many homeowners purchase their properties in their early years and don’t factor in the inevitable changes that will occur that will lead to the expansion of their lives.
Whether it be due to a growing family or a new job that is much too far of a drive from your current home, there are plenty of reasons why your first home (and maybe even second or third) will simply not work for you any longer. This can be a frustrating time, as the process of relocating to another home comes with a stressful set of tasks, the most stressful of which being placing your current home on the market.
A great deal of risk is involved when you attempt to sell your home. If you haven’t been making consistent updates or maintaining your home properly, then you could be looking at a significant loss when it comes time to sell. This thought alone will prompt most homeowners to panic and begin a series of costly renovations in order to upgrade their homes on a tight schedule.
The first renovation a homeowner will look to perform is the expansion of any cramped rooms in their homes, including their bathroom, bedroom, or kitchen. Sadly, these type of expansions can cost an astronomical amount, and once you reach the bottom line they may not even add much value to your home.
Thankfully, with a bit of ingenuity and innovative decorative fluorescent light covers, you can effectively update your home without spending an arm and a leg to do so.
Understanding How Decorative Fluorescent Light Covers Work
Decorative fluorescent light covers are sweeping the nation and the globe due to their innate ability to effectively expand and enhance any space. This includes areas in a home, office, business, hospital/medical setting, and anywhere else.
Light covers can be installed over any existing fluorescent light fixtures and display a wide array of images to create some of the most amazing effects you’ll ever see from decorative lighting. For instance, you can create the look and feel of a real skylight on your ceiling by installing sky and cloud light covers, without any of the cost or hassle associated with installing real sky lights.
What’s more? Decorative fluorescent light covers are ideal for increasing productivity — which is why they’re perfect for work spaces such as home or business offices. Light covers effectively diminish the harsh light that is emitted from standard fluorescent light bulbs, which can cause severe migraines and headaches, as well as lead to an extreme decrease in productivity. This is why having a light diffuser such as a decorative light cover makes so much sense in these environments.
Now that you have an understanding of how decorative fluorescent light covers work, in order to comprehend how light covers can help you when it comes to selling and staging your home, let’s explore some situations where light covers work perfectly for this purpose.
Staging Your Home With Fluorescent Light Covers In Your Living Room
One of the first impressions a potential buyer will have of your home is the living room as its one of the first areas of your home most people navigate to after walking in the front door.
Unfortunately, if you have a living room that hasn’t been updated in years, has no cohesive theme or color scheme and has little to no light coming through, then a buyer will find themselves unimpressed and this may set the tone for the rest of their tour of your home.
In these situations, some homeowners may feel the need to opt for pricey renovations — such as upgrading their living room’s flooring or running to the store to purchase a slew of new living room furniture — however, by simply installing fluorescent light covers in this space you can effectively update the look of your living room while expanding it at the same time.
For example, by installing landscape light covers on your living room wall, you will be essentially creating a focal point, similar to that of a vibrant canvas painting, while also creating the illusion of more space. These light covers, in particular, display gorgeous mountainscapes and images of nature that flow perfectly with any living room set up to perfectly accentuate the space.
If you have a bit more in your budget than expected, you could even combine these light covers with decorative pillows and an area rug that matches the colors featured in the light covers themselves. This will provide the cohesion your living room desperately needs and will give you the wow factor home buyers will be looking for when searching for a new home.

Staging Your Home With Decorative Light Covers In Your Kitchen
A kitchen is likely the most important space of any good home, as it’s not only where you will be preparing, cooking, and storing most of your tasty meals, but it’s also a special place where you’ll be creating memories for a lifetime with your family.
This is why it’s so important, for anyone wanting to sell their home, to ensure their kitchen is up to date and fully equipped to handle everyday use. Sadly, some kitchens simply lack when it comes to features and space. If your kitchen is cramped and outdated, potential home buyers will certainly take notice and consider this a massive downside to purchasing your home. This will, in turn, significantly lower the value of your property and hurt the purchase price in the long run.
With that said, that doesn’t mean you need to begin knocking down walls to create more kitchen space and running out to the store to purchase an array of brand new kitchen appliances. There are smaller, yet still effective, ways to update your kitchen, such as installing decorative fluorescent light covers on your kitchen ceiling.
As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, cloud light covers are ideal for cramped spaces, as they can be installed on your ceiling to create the same effect of a real sky light; significantly expanding the space. However, you can also use astronomy light covers in the same exact way, as these light covers display images of different star patterns, galaxies, and nebulae to simulate a view of the night sky.
This will not only provide your kitchen with an insanely unique and eye-popping work of art, but it will also give the space more room, which will be much appreciated by any potential home buyers. Not to mention, you can use light covers in tandem with mirrors on your kitchen’s walls, which work much in the same way to expand your space.
Staging Your Home With Fluorescent Light Covers In Your Bathrooms
While not as important as a nice and updated kitchen or living room, your home’s bathrooms are a key component to your overall property, and (when in proper shape) can be a fantastic selling point for potential buyers.
On the other hand, when your bathrooms are dark, outdated, and have faulty appliances, this can deter from the rest of your home and be an extreme flaw in the eyes of any buyer that tours your property. To remedy this, you could (of course) opt to remodel your bathrooms with brand new tile, shower doors, toilets, and sinks, or you can go for a more affordable option, like installing decorative fluorescent light covers.
Decorative light covers, such as our ocean light covers, work perfectly for any bathroom in your home, from your master all the way down to your powder room, and can be used in combination with aquatic soap dispensers and shower curtains to create a cohesive theme.
These light covers display vibrant schools of fish, dolphins, sharks, and a range of additional sea life to captivate any potential buyer, and can be fantastic for buyers with children.
Staging Your Home With Decorative Light Covers In Your Bedrooms
Bedrooms are a bit tricky to stage when it comes time to show off your home to potential buyers. This is due to the fact that not many homeowners pay much attention to these spaces, and they are typically left outdated and messy throughout the lifespan of one’s home.
However, it’s important not to leave any room in your home out in terms of sprucing up, in order to keep your potential buyers impressed with the entirety of your property; giving them as little of an excuse as possible when it comes to not purchasing your home.
This means you should be mindful of your bedrooms, no matter how many there are inside your home, by keeping these spaces neat and tidy, while also making small touches to either update or expand each bedroom. You can do this by installing decorative fluorescent light covers on your bedroom walls and ceiling.
For example, to stage a child’s bedroom, you could create custom light covers that display images of different cartoon characters or photos of sports teams to be tied into the appropriate decor, bedding, and furniture. This will not only be seen as an adorable touch by potential home buyers, but they will also be able to see the potential of the space if they should decide to buy your home.
When it comes to your master bedroom, there are plenty of options to choose from to create an impressive and unique look and feel for this space. For instance, you could install flower light covers on your master bedroom’s wall to create an instant accent wall that will effectively stand out and can fit perfectly with any sized room or theme. You could also use waterfall light covers, beach light covers, or tree light covers which all look just as impressive and fit perfectly with any room in your home.
