Lighting: Top 5 benefits of adding more lighting to your home

Phoenix Electrical

Lighting in the home is important and is one of the most overlooked areas of improvement in most homes. Here are a few major benefits to consider when adding more lighting to your home.

Add value to your home

Lighting is a relatively inexpensive way to help increase the value of your home. If you are planning on selling your house, you might want to invest in some quality lighting design. Lighting will help emphasize the important elements of your property and make the most out of its potential. If you plan a lighting project effectively, you can turn an ordinary home into a beautiful home and increase the value at the same time. Areas of the home where lighting add the most value are exterior landscaping, entry, kitchen, bathrooms and family room.

Add ambiance

Lighting adds an additional element or a look and feel to your home that makes people feel welcomed. It appeals to both the visual sense but also impacts that intangible sixth sense that is often hard to describe. That feeling of “home” we all have is something that we want our guests or potential home buyers to also feel when they come to your home. LED Recessed lighting on a dimmer creates a welcoming atmosphere and increases ambience, warmth and contrast.

Create a focal point

Ideally, the rooms of your home have a built-in focal point. In that case, all you have to do is construct your design in such a way the lights highlight this existing feature. Every focal point in your home should have its own lighting source to help it stand out.

Added safety and home security

By adding bright lights around the exterior of your house, you can guarantee shadows and dark corners that easily hide thieves are brought to light in the late hours of the night. The important areas to place security lights are on the house, in the yard, and around the perimeter of the property. Other areas such as pathways, driveways, natural areas, and entrances are especially good for security lights.

Helps with aging eyesight

Indoor lighting contributes to safety and independent living. In general, significantly more light is needed in the home for seniors. This is because of common eye changes and eye disorders in which the eye needs more light to see at the same level it used to with less light. For some tasks, someone aged 60 may need ten times the light than a 20-year-old would require. Dimmable pendants or a chandelier over the dining room table allows for brighter light during eating and other activities. For the senior reading in bed or a chair or doing craft projects, reading lights and controls for them within easy reach, are very helpful. Additionally, older eyes are more sensitive to light levels. Dimmers make it possible to control the level of light to adjust for the time of day.
