How to Use Lighting to Make Your Home More Attractive
If you plan to sell your home, you can make your interiors and exteriors shine by improving the lighting. Here’s how.
Drapes and shades: Natural light works best during the day. So make sure to open all drapes and shades to let in the sunlight.
Highlighting: Put emphasis on the room’s focal points, such as an alcove or artwork, by using lighting. Use task lighting in such spaces.
Exterior areas: The driveway and other such areas can be lit with the help of low-voltage string lights.
Doorway lamps: You can greatly enhance the curb appeal of your home by placing interesting lamps on your porch.
Security lights: Lighting placed around your house needs to be high up to ensure enough light is spread. Try using bright lights for the exteriors.
Shining out: Lighting which accentuates the interior of your home should also be visible from the outside. Use lighting to add a feeling of warmth and grace to a room before people even come into your house.
Mood and theme: If your home is chic and modern, try using a clean and simple lighting design. For more classic styles, use ornate lighting, such as chandeliers.
LED lighting usages: New to the market, LED lights work best for the kitchen, bathroom and other functional areas.
