The garage is often the first room we enter in our homes; in fact, most Americans use their garage door as the primary entrance to their homes. Yet often our garages are the least inviting part of the house, particularly when it comes to the lighting. If you find that the lighting in your garage isn’t welcoming, here are some tips for how you can brighten it up:

Fluorescent Lights

Fluorescent lighting is a cost-effective solution to your lighting problem. You can install a few fixtures in your garage and see how fluorescents can illuminate your garage without being too noticeable. Fluorescent bulbs are less expensive than standard bulbs and last longer. However, fluorescent lighting does sometimes flicker, and is generally considered less attractive lighting than other options.

Recessed Lights

Recessed lights can be a great option for people looking to brighten up their garages. You may choose to opt for a round shape as they are very easy to find and usually come with standard sockets, so special light bulbs are not required. However, square and rectangle shapes are other options. It is easiest to install recessed lights before any drywall is up, but it is possible to install them when there is drywall already installed.

Track Lights

Track lighting is slightly easier to install than recessed lighting. There are many different types of track lights and types of bulbs you can use. There are now flexible tracks which you can use to be more creative with your lighting.
