Want to learn how to control the lighting temperature in a room? Here’s how to install a dimmer switch on a cord, plus a video.
With all of the lamps we have around here, at least half are on dimmer switches. I like to control the lighting temperature of a room because somedays, it’s a full blast day, and others negate low lighting. What can I say, I like options.
Let me just back up a minute and talk about how important dimmer switches are in general, whether attached to a cord, or installed in the wall outlet. I mean, they aren’t going to change the world or anything like that, but they can help with the tone; the mood.
Show of hands here – how many of you squint when you turn on the lights in the bathroom first thing in the morning? This is where a dimmer switch can help you out. Turn the light on low, let the eyes adjust, then gradually up the dial. Those overhead lights that I said I wasn’t a huge fan of yesterday? Each and every one is on a dimmer.
Same goes for lamps. What’s your mood? It’s all about lighting temperature options, and Mr. Dimmer Switch is your friend. Heck, even our under-cabinet light is on a dimmer. Game changer when brewing my morning coffee.

We have a thing for marquee letters around here. We think they’re pretty fab, but with all of the light bulbs involved, they’re wicked bright. A couple hundred blog posts ago, I showed you how to light up a marquee letter. Today’s post is brought to you by the letter “F” and Sean’s showing you how to install an in-line dimmer switch on that cord.
By no means do you need to be an electrician to install an in-line dimmer, but you do need to be aware of the do’s and don’t’s of electricity. Sean’s got the pointers and the tips that you’ll need. From here on out, I’m pretty sure a few dimmer switches are in your future.
