Choosing the Right Indoor Lighting For Your Home
What to consider:
- Type Of Light
What do you want your guests to feel when they walk into your home? Yellow lights are more comforting and cozy but can mute other colors. Whiter lights are cleaner but also stark and on-edge. Colored lights are playful. While each room should be consistent, your entire house can be a variety. Take a moment to really gauge how you’d like each room to feel and make sure to choose lighting accordingly.
- Light Placement
After the color of the light itself is decided, you should aim to have at least two sources of light in every room. This is a textbook secret of interior designers everywhere. Two sources of light on opposite sides of the room gives everything illumination. There aren’t any awkward shadows or strange glares. Because the light communicates mood, you want the light to evenly distribute the mood for continuity and harmony in your room. The sources could include windows for natural light, ceiling lights, desk lamps, and wall sconces.
- Lighting Style
After you’ve got the vibe and setup all figured out, the last piece is cohesiveness with all the other items in the room. There are endless options for light-styles, but an easy way to pare down the options is to look at style boards or talk with a professional. Save images that resonate with you to pick apart the similarities and then search for light fixtures that fit the same theme. Once you’ve found your setup, our team at ACS Home Services would be happy to help with installing the light fixtures. Bring your style choices and observations to us for guidance and our team can help you find the right fit for you and your home.
Outdoor Lighting Installation
You would never consider the inside of your home complete without the addition of lighting fixtures, so why should your outdoor living space be any different? Add some ambiance and safety to your yard with outdoor lighting!
Why You should install outdoor lighting:
When we suggest that you install outdoor lighting, we’re not talking about floodlights just for the purpose of illuminating the space. Instead, think more about how your lighting can accentuate your outdoor living space and turn up the ambiance. Some of our favorite lighting options that will increase the ambiance in your yard include string lighting, lantern lighting, sconce lighting, and pathway lighting.
Another benefit of installing outdoor lighting is increased safety for you and your guests. When your yard is shrouded in darkness it poses a number of safety risks to those at your home. This is especially true if you have curving paths, stairs or even slightly uneven ground. Those who are unfamiliar with the terrain could easily slip, trip, fall and injure themselves which would leave you liable for their medical expenses.
The addition of outdoor lighting will also extend your ability to enjoy your yard throughout all times of the year. Beginning in the latter half of the year, the sun starts setting earlier which usually brings your gatherings indoors. However, with the addition of a few key light fixtures, you could continue the party outside all night long.
