Does it feel like your home has this dull atmosphere all the time? Look no further than your lighting plan. Lighting, done the right way, adds a huge contribution to the overall ambience of your home. But before you go pulling out all those lighting fixtures and replacing them, here are some important factors to consider when revamping your lighting plan!
When considering a new lighting plan for the home, the most important questions you should ask is where and how much.
Where do most family members spend their time doing daily tasks? Identify what activities usually occur in every part of the room.
How much lighting does a room need? Based on the first question, you would have identified the answer to this second question.
When looking for new lighting plan, always look for the ENERGY STAR label. These Energy Star-labeled are energy-efficient lighting products. If possible, select those automated energy-saving lights with features like occupancy sensors or timers.
Lighting when used effectively will enhance your home interiors. By simply knowing which parts of your home to highlight, a visitor’s focal point will immediately be attracted to these places and will provide a more ambient homely atmosphere.
Aside from looking for the ENERGY STAR label on the lighting products you purchase, an efficient lighting system will reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions during night time.
Safety and Security
Your outdoor lighting when done efficiently will minimize hazards when night time comes, giving enough light for safe movement outside while preventing accidents that commonly happen in areas where there are a lot of corners or elevated floors.
