There are many reasons to upgrade the lighting in your home. You may be getting ready to sell or remodel your home, or your home may not be bright enough. Your reason for upgrading will help determine the type of lighting you should use. Assurance Electrical Services shares ideas for lighting upgrades for your home.
General lighting is designed to provide the right amount of light for you to move around your house. This light helps make every part of your home accessible. The only areas in which you may not find general lighting is an attic or a garage. Recessed lights and overhead lights are typically used for your general lighting needs.
There are parts of your home that require more light than others. Your kitchen countertops, for example, require additional lighting for preparing food. The desk in a home office would require extra lighting. You can think of task lighting as the lighting you need to get work done (or read a book).
If you want to make a part of your home stand out, accent lighting is the way to go. This type of light helps draw attention to specific elements in your home. These elements may include a portrait, an accent wall, or a sculpture. If you want to sell your home or give your home a fresh new feel, accent lighting will give you the aesthetic you want.
Regardless of the type of lighting you choose, it is vital that you follow proper safety practices. If the lighting fixtures are not properly installed, your new upgrades could damage your home or put your family in danger.
