Your home lighting might be one of the most important and overlooked aspects of your home’s interior. With all of us spending more time at home while we work from our home office and our kids have Zoom lessons at the kitchen counter, good indoor lighting is more important now than ever.
Whether you’ve just completed a home renovation or are simply looking to modernize your space, updating your home lighting can significantly increase your home’s value, and change its atmosphere. From bulbs to light fixtures, and switches to dimmers, let’s shed some light on how you can update your lighting in the different spaces of your home.
These days people are spending more time in their kitchens and doing more than just cooking, so it’s important to think about how you use your kitchen space before deciding on the changes you want to make.
This is a great way to upgrade your lighting in the kitchen by installing LED lights underneath your cabinets. This creates direct light onto the countertops while you’re chopping and preparing your food.
These lights are the perfect addition for over the island counter to add light directly onto the surface where your children might spend time doing their homework while you cook, or where you can write tomorrow’s to-do list while you eat.
The bathroom is where you practice self-care, and probably where you spend the most time looking in the mirror. Great and flattering bathroom lighting is imperative to creating the perfect space for your morning and evening routine.
Think about replacing your strip mirror lighting with a vertical wall sconce that can be placed next to the mirror to create more direct light onto your face instead of the mirror. This way you’ll have better light for your morning makeup routine.
For safety reasons, you can consider adding a recessed light in the ceiling above the shower to add extra light – especially if the bathroom lacks natural lighting. It can also act as a night light for the kids’ bathroom and saves you having to leave other lights on and can prevent accidents during the night.
The bedroom is one of the most important spaces in your home and making it a comfortable space should be front of mind. These lighting upgrade ideas are sure to raise your comfort levels.
Your bedroom is your place of rest and relaxation. Add a dimmer switch to your ceiling lights to create the perfect ambiance.
Consider removing any fluorescent or overhead lighting and replace it with theater-style LED path lights to create a flattering and cozy ambiance. LED lights are a better choice because they’re cool to the touch, and last longer, so you won’t have to worry about potential fires from your clothes getting too hot.
Once you’ve upgraded the inside of your home, it’s important not to forget about the outside! Here are some quick and easy outdoor lighting upgrades to consider.
Consider adding a motion sensor on any outdoor light fixtures so that the light turns on as soon as people get within a certain distance to the house. This is a great safety measure to alert you if a stranger is getting too close to your house at night, as well as if you or your kids are coming in after dark.
This addition is perfect for outdoor lighting so that you’ll always have light whenever it starts to get dark outside. It’s also energy-saving and convenient since you won’t need to remember to turn the lights off and on!
