Home remodels can cost a lot. Before you think about tearing down those walls or putting in bigger windows to let in a floodgate of light, though, you might want to shop for LED home lighting options first. Not sure what you need to know to make the right buying decisions? No worries. We have you covered with the basics:
What kind of mood or ambiance are you going for? The Independent says visible light helps the body produce neurotransmitter serotonin which has a positive effect in reducing signs or symptoms of depression. Essentially, bright lights can have a happy effect on people. You might want to factor that in when you upgrade the lights in rooms or areas where you regularly entertain guests.
Determine how bright you want the lights to be. This will hugely depend on the room or area of your home. For instance, while you might want bright lights in your kitchen or home office, softer lighting will be better for your bedroom, to give you that relaxing feel that could help you get a restful night’s sleep. Too much brightness can interfere with your sleep patterns too so it’s better to go with a muted brightness instead.
How large is the space? Don’t make the mistake of lights that might be too little or large for the area. Consider all that before you start shopping and installing LED home lighting in your home.
There are slews of styles you can choose from. Want something dramatic? Go for stylish, pendant lights. These might just be all you need to add that much-needed touch of drama in an otherwise boring space. You could also go for wall sconces that can work as handy accents in a room or in your outdoor space such as your garage or garden.
