Spring is the prime time to remodel your home and get it ready for summer entertainment or even the busy season to sell. The longer days give contractors more time to get your projects finished, and some even choose to use their tax returns that they recently received on these renovations. Many forget to remodel their lighting, however, when thinking of ways to change up their home and new lighting can make a huge difference and be just what a room may have needed.
Make Your Kitchen Brighter with Strategically Placed Lighting
Using LED lights underneath and inside cabinets can make finding the lid to your pots or the spices in the back of the cabinets a much easier task. It can also help highlight your counter tops and make preparing dishes in your home a little more effortless. Try hanging lights over your island to accent the piece or toe kick lights to illuminate a dark pathway in the search for water in the dead of night.
Control the Mood in the Living Room with Dimmers
Dimmers are great for areas that have a lot of traffic, and it allows you to use less energy and also helps the bulb last longer by only giving out the amount of light needed. Adding a dimmer can transform your living room into a personal movie theater, set the mood for a gathering or give you more light to finish the family puzzle!
Promote Productivity in Your Home Office by Adjusting Your Lighting
Having the ability to adjust the lighting in your home office can not only give your eyes a break but promote productivity if lit correctly for the time of day. Sometimes even having space with ambient lighting nearby can help you find a quick moment of peace with its low lighting intensity.
Find the Perfect Lighting for Your Bathroom
It’s essential to have light in the bathroom where it’s needed, whether near the shower, bathroom sinks or in front of the vanity. Decide to add lighting options like recess lighting that takes away space for unwanted shadows to help with makeup application and placing lighting on the sides of the mirror instead if on the ceiling is also a good practice for the most efficient light in your bathroom.
Make Your Bedroom Peaceful With the Correct Lighting
Putting ambient lights in your bedroom promotes peace and gives the whole room the same feel. Using accent lights, you can choose to spotlight specific parts of the room or give it a subtle dreamy glow. Installing wall sconces to a side of your bed can also give you excellent task lighting for late night reading.
The lighting in your home can change the mood, make you feel better, and of course, make a room look better. Although these projects can be overlooked, they are just as crucial as renovating and replacing any other part of your home. Are you looking for an electrician to install these new lights?
