Light Boxes and Fluorescent Lighting

 

7. Paint dated fixtures, like light boxes or florescent kitchen
lights.

Until you have the money to replace bathroom light boxes, or dated
kitchen lights, paint them. Your eye will not be drawn to them,
and they will not be as noticeable.

When you do decide to remove a light box, if you don't want to
patch the wall, be sure you buy a light fixture that has a large
enough footprint at the back of it to cover any holes left in the
wall from the wires used by the light box.
