How to Light Your Home Up

Many times, we get the perfect furniture and decorations for our home but our lighting of the room is less than stellar. Lighting can pose a big challenge in our homes. Sometimes we wish that there was more natural lighting shinning in verses our dim hanging fixtures. Often it is because of the common mistake that people make in their choice of lighting that is the cause of the problem. The good news is McCaleb Homes can help you fix them. Here are 3 tips that will help you to brighten up your home the way you want it!

  1. Use Task Lighting

Task lighting is very easy to install and fairly cheap. These lights are to help focus on a specified task that you are working on. For example, these lights would go underneath your cabinets in your kitchen and used when chopping up food for dinner. There are diverse types of task lights you can get but it’s important for you to choose the right color and mood for your kitchen. You want to make sure that they match the rest of the mood and color of the lights in your kitchen.

  1. Vanity Downlights with Additional Lighting

In many bathrooms, most people just use a vanity light. Vanity lights are nice and beautiful but often these lights shine on your sink and leaves the rest of your bathroom dark. It’s important for your bathroom to have the correct lighting to also have additional lighting whether it be overhead cans with dimmers or lighting more at eye level to take away shadows. Pairing these two types of lighting will help brighten up your bathroom so that you can see what you’re doing.

  1. Different Lighting on Different Switches

McCaleb Homes understands that everyone is human and we are often not in the same mood all the time. A way to help this is by installing lights that have different switches or a wall box to control them. This will allow you to switch up the mood of a room the way you want to. This also lends itself to being energy efficient. Only having certain lights on for the amounts you want will help to lower your energy bill.

These tips will help you not only love your home but help you to see why you love it. With your home made perfect from your furniture and decorations now you can show them off to your family and friends with the best lighting tricks. McCaleb Homes has an eye for capturing beauty and then shining a light on it. So, take a peek at our homes and the lighting that we have put in them. We are sure that you will love them.
