How to Make a Room Perfectly Lit

When you walk into a poorly lit room, you notice almost instantly. On the other hand, when the room is lit up too much it can feel like you’re in a hospital or doctor’s office. In order to have the best type of lighting, be sure to follow these steps.

Use a Dimmer Rooms that can be used for eating, relaxing, and entertaining should all have dimmers installed. This will allow you to adjust the amount of light you want in the room depending on the time of day and mood. As a rule of thumb, dimmers are needed if the lights are installed directly into the ceiling. Not only will this give you control, but it will also help you save money on your energy bills.

Bulb Choice Regular fluorescent bulbs can strain your eyes after an extended period of time, while also making colors seem off. Instead, opt for compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) or LED light bulbs. Both of these choices look great and can help lower your energy bills, just know they can be a bit pricier than their fluorescent counterparts.

Room Function Each room in your home should not be lit the same way since they each serve a different purpose. For dining rooms where you eat dinner, utilize overhead lighting (a chandelier) with the assistance of a dimmer. If your living room has track lighting, be sure to not point the lights directly downwards. As for the kitchen, the best lighting is installed below eye level. Consider installing lights underneath your cabinets in order to illuminate your countertop space.

The right type and level of lighting is the one thing that can really make or break the look of a room. When you’re thinking about installing new light fixtures in your home, contact the electricians at Lancaster Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical.
