How Lighting Can Affect Your Home
Have you ever wondered if that dim pendant light above your dining table has affected the look of your home? The simple answer is yes, but that can easily be fixed. It’s quite obvious that the quality of light can influence people in different ways, ranging from the happiness and productivity of workers in a fluorescent-bulb-infused office, to people sitting in a candlelit-restaurant dining room. These findings are especially true for your home.
When your home is lit brighter, it has more visual charm, whereas houses that are dark and plain appear dated and dismal. I’ve spoken to some of my real estate friends and they often suggest updated light fixtures, as well as soft paint colors, for clients looking to make the most when selling. This is because visual appeal is the most important thing in your home.
Here’s a breakdown of some common lighting and how they affect a space:
- LED – these bulbs are the most modern technology and are extremely energy-effective. Nonetheless, most just provide one-directional lighting.
- Fluorescent bulbs – these provide an even, yet cold light. Their favoured use remains in really dark rooms, such as in attics, cellars, or outdoors on porches.
- Incandescent lights – these bulbs are the most typical. They’re budget-friendly and produce a warm and welcoming light, however they are not as energy effective as various other bulbs.
It’s obvious that great lighting can improve the mood as well as desirability of your home. And the terrific thing about it? A simple table light can transform any dark corner! You can also add drama as well as sparkle to any kind of area with the addition of a chandelier. The options are endless.
