I love DIY projects, but I’m an impatient girl so I usually stick with the kind that you can finish up in a day at most. One of the biggest changes you can make to the feel of your home is to install good lighting. However, I’ve got no electrician skills and so I’ve avoided even attempting to change up the lighting in our rooms and moved it to the someday list.
Every time I snap a picture inside though I get a little annoyed by the yellow dingy light effect. It’s just not flattering, and I’m a snap happy mom who loves to take pics and share on Instagram and Facebook. So when a box of LIGHTIFY lighting products from OSRAM SYLVANIA showed up I couldn’t wait to try them out.
LIGHTIFY smart connected lighting products let you change up the atmosphere by changing your lighting indoors and outdoors. You can dim or brighten the light, change it to a warmer or cooler color and even schedule settings all from your smartphone. There are even options for fun color accents so you can add a rainbow of lighting effects to any room.
The two places I most wanted to update with better lighting were my son’s bedroom and our bedroom. Being able to dim down the lights when we’re reading books or brighten them up during the day would make such a big difference. So we opened up our LIGHTIFY boxes and set out to transform the bedrooms.
Setting up the LIGHTIFY products is so easy, it literally takes minutes. I downloaded the free mobile app, plugged in the Gateway wifi connector and it was lights on! With the touch of a button I can change the lighting and adjust the levels of brightness and color. The Gateway connector allows you to control up to 50 bulbs indoors and outdoors, from any location across the world.
Easy DIY Project #1 — Kids Room Lighting
Here is the before for Brady’s room with our old bulbs. Not great whiting and that ehhhhh yellow tone 🙁
And here is the after. A much nicer tone and I love that I can set the lights to automatically adjust to a dimmer option for when he goes to bed and even have it come on to brighten the room and wake up him in the morning.
Easy DIY Project #2– Bedroom Lighting
For our bedroom I used the Tunable ‘real’ white LIGHTIFY bulb to replace our old bulb. That way I can adjust the lighting from a warm, relaxing white at night when I’m winding down to a bright white in the morning to help energize me in the morning. I love that it’s a nice bright white, much more like daylight. It will also come in handy when I’m working from home and lock myself away in the bedroom to finish up important tasks.

Closet after! Such a big difference
I can’t believe it was this easy to change up our lighting and boy, what a difference it makes. It’s so nice to feel the benefits of brighter lighting in our rooms during the day when we can’t get outdoors, it really does boost your energy and make you feel happier. The convenience of being able to turn our lights on and off right from my phone just makes life easier. Snapping pics inside just got a whole lot cuter too!
With the LIGHTIFY smart connected lighting products you have so many options for changing up your lighting, easily and automatically. It’s the smart choice for making your home smarter and creating a happier environment, day and night.
