I'm putting our house on the market and we have a finished attic space that we used as a playroom for the kids. We want to dress it up using lighting. What do you think about color-changing LEDs?
I am rather partial to LEDs, but in this scenario I am going suggest another direction. If you were staying in this home, then investing in color-changing LEDs would create a cool space for the kids. But this is a house for sale and you want to add something that isn’t too personal or expensive. I went to an open house recently and the stager had installed inexpensive pendant fixtures in the smaller bedrooms that cast a pattern of light on the walls and ceilings. It was magical.
