Inspiring Tips For Creating A Quick Romantic Lamps And Lighting
Looking for a way to start off a romantic evening? Even if you’ve bought gifts, flowers, and candy, why not create the ideal setting for sharing your presents? You don’t have to buy new lighting fixtures or spend lots of money to create these easy romantic lamps and lighting ideas, transforming an ordinary room to a magical space:
Fully Love Ideas For Valentine Lighting Design
Start with red light bulbs. These are easily found at hardware, lighting, and crafts stores – or simply search for them at online stores. You’ll want to plan ahead and make sure you get the bulbs well before the big day. By simply changing out your regular light bulbs for the red ones, any room will have a softer glow. While you’re at it, why not change the porch or patio bulbs as well?
Recycle old or used lamp shades by painting them red will also create romantic lamps and lighting in quick way. If you have some lamp shades that have gotten a bit worn, you can spray paint them red and temporarily replace your usual lamp shades with these. If you don’t have suitable shades on hand, look for inexpensive lamp shades in craft or department stores. They can often be found at bargain prices, ready to paint. Red lamp shades and low watt bulbs lend a romantic aura to rooms.
Outdoor Lighting With Contemporary Romantic Idea
Top a lamp with a red or pink scarf – but make sure you do this safely. If you’ve ever seen old movies where the actors gaze lovingly at each other, with scarves tossed casually on top of the lights, you may be tempted to create the same atmosphere. But put safety first.
Make sure you’ve changed your usual light bulbs for those which are 25 watts or less. Even then, be sure to remove the scarves when you leave the room. Never put a scarf on top of a light that creates intense heat. With the right lamp and bulbs, however, you can indeed cover the tops of the shades with decorative fabrics or scarves.
Romantic Candles Idea
Buy some inexpensive red felt or craft paper, cut out hearts, and tape them to the exterior of glass candle holders or clear glass lamp bases. You can also use find paint suitable for glass. The paint can be easily used to decorate large candle cylinders or even lamp bases or shades. If you have a light with a red lamp base, white paper hearts add a nice contrast against the darker color.
Do you have a large and small vase that has similar shapes? Use them for an easy DIY romantic lighting project. You’ll want one vase that fits inside the other with room to spare. In the space between the interior and exterior vase, use your imagination to fill the area with objects that evoke romance.
Shredded red, white or pink tissue paper is not only inexpensive but could be created from paper you already have on hand, perhaps old red or pink wrapping paper. To add interest, consider alternating the paper with heart-shaped candy (avoid any candies which melt easily).
Romantic Lighting For Bedroom
You can even use old or new Valentines or anniversary cards, bending them to fit the inside of the larger vase. Add votive candles to the center of the smaller vase and you’ve got a completed candle light. For extra safety, put some sand in the bottom of the small vase so that the candles aren’t set directly on the glass bottom. This prevents the vase from cracking or shattering.
If you have a nonworking fireplace, you can put a mirror in the back of the fireplace and set large pillar candles in front of the mirror. While a glowing fire is nice, candles don’t leave behind ashes or other residue. Quick to set up, quick to take down – what could be easier?
Unique And Romantic Lamps Idea
Now that you’ve got these ideas to get your creative juices flowing, you can use your imagination to take it from there. Then what have you got now? One of a kind, easy and unique romantic lamps and lighting that is perfect for a passionate evening.
