Light Your Paintings Without Calling an Electrician

You just bought a beautiful piece of art and brought it home. The light just isn’t right, and it doesn’t look as good as it did in the gallery. You do a little research and understand you SHOULD have installed track lighting when you built your house. I agree having track lighting with LED’s may be ideal. But, it’s a little late now.

I have a very inexpensive solution. There are slim line picture lights starting at about $18, that you can get online. One that I like is Rite Lite.

I found this Rite Lite on Amazon and Walmart and also on Home Depot .
It comes in Black, Gold and Silver. It has a remote control for on, off and it is dimmable. All this for only $22!

DIY Lighting for Artwork

There are plenty of options for battery powered LED lights that you can easily install above your paintings. They require batteries but remember, they are not going to be on all the time and LED’s last for a long time. Best of all, they don’t get hot. These lights are easy to install and may be just the right solution for featuring your artwork.

-Adjust the angle to minimize glare as needed.
-Don’t overdue the brightness.
The light should not be more than 30% brighter than the rest of the room.

Hope this helps take the pain out of lighting your artwork.
