During my time as a home stager, one of the most common recommendations I made during the staging consultation process was to "update your light fixtures". Outdated builder-grade light fixtures do nothing to enhance the appeal of a property.
Homeowners are sometimes reluctant to follow through on this recommendation because they don't want to spend money hiring an electrician to install new fixtures, or deal with drywall patching and the other minor repairs that often go along with the process of replacing a fixture.
Fortunately, there are a variety of relatively pain-free options for dealing with this home staging challenge. Let's talk about four of options for updating your outdated fixtures.
