If style makes the man, lighting makes the room.
One of the most common men’s grooming mistakes is insufficient lighting. Unfortunately, lighting can be quite expensive, and if you live in an apartment, some lighting options are not as readily available as they may require more permanent methods of installation.

Proper lighting can be an investment, and not all lighting options are available to people who live in a rental, but there are many options and techniques that will brighten up your space, regardless of your home ownership status or personal budget.
Below, we’ve combined our best lighting advice with some of our favorite high/low lighting options if you’re feeling inspired and ready to brighten up your home.
