Improve Your Home Lighting

Effective lighting is a big factor in transforming a house into a home. When homebuyers refer to a place as comfortable or cozy, it’s a safe bet that the homeowners have made an investment in their lighting.

Here are five easy and low cost ways to light up your home:


Diffuse the light – Try to avoid harsh and direct light by using lamp shades for interior light sources and window treatments to help prevent glare from the brightest source of all – the sun.


Room Color – The color of a room will have an impact on your lighting scheme. On cold weather days the sunlight coming into your home can make things look flatter and bluer so you’ll want to avoid darker colors for lamp shades and paint. The direction that your windows face will also effect the lighting in a room. It would be smart to test out  different paint colors on the wall to see how they look throughout the course of a day.


Hidden Lighting – Sometimes the best lighting seems to come from unknown sources. Recessed lighting, spotlights and stylish fixtures can help take the attention away from the source.


Candles – Use candles and light the fireplace if you have one. One out of every five homebuyers say a working fireplace is on their list of must-haves, so show yours off!


Accent Lighting- Accent lighting can add a lot of texture to a room. Use it to highlight books and bookshelves, pictures, or glassware.
